DREAM.3: Cro Cop vs. Hong Man Choi?
Let me first say I have no real credible source for this? This is something I got from a Sherdog poster. BUt he basically said DREAM producers are thinking of making a CC vs. HMC match.


The producer of DREAM mentioned this match up even said this would be an interesting fight and he would love to see it happen.

And the Japanese press are saying if everything goes well this fight will take place in DREAM #3.
So what are your thoughts if this is true? Both have no real ground game so I think it will be a fight that will remain standing IMO! How would you see Cro Cop vs. Hong Man Choi going? What stradegy would Cro Cop need to beat HMC?

I know what you mean? We were hoping for somebody like Aleksander Emelianenko or Sergei Kharitonov but instead we get the Big guy with the 1-1 record.

Yeah, well hopefuly this turns out to be like the Nakoa news and never happens. Mirko's managment really needs to step it up, big time.

I would rather have him face Aleks E., Overeem, or Sergei but this would be a very tough test for Cro Cop if the fight stayed on their feet.

Personally, I am loving the thought of this match up...
I'm sure people will be quick to dismiss the Techno Goliath because of the "freakshow" label attached to him and the fact that he is pretty much one demensial, but the guy has real K-1 credentials with wins over Mighty Mo, Terkay and Schilt...
I think he is a great test for any fighter that wants to stand and bang with him and I'm sure that is what Cro Cop would do. The guy has giant strength and his kness are at most opponents head level to begin with...
I'm sure I'm in the minority with this, but I really don't think it would be easy task for Cro Cop or any other MMA fighter to stand and chop down an experienced kickboxer like Choi...

Honestly I'dbe as impressed with Crocop beating HMC as a solid HW, solely becuase of how bad a fight he is for Crocop.

Also, if the Crocop from DREAM fights the Sergei who killed Overeem, hes in trouble.

Well it's official, DREAM is the new PRIDE. Lopsided matchups and all. :thumbsdown:

I actually think Crocop would lose this fight.

I disagree that this is a lopsided match up. Hong is a K-1 kickboxer who has beaten some very good guys and unless Cro Cop tries to take him down which I don't think he could do if he tried this is a very tough match up for him.
