Hong Man Choi getting no love in home nation

Courtesy of the BloodyElbow FanShot section (which I strongly urge all of you to occasionally check it out when you have a moment or two).

Quote:
In his latest "Inside Korea" column for Kamipro, Yoshiyuki Okawa says that, despite a dominant victory over Jose Canseco at DREAM.9, Hong Man Choi is getting no love from the media in South Korea.

Major newspaper My Daily wrote that "no one ever thought this was a fair fight" and Choi had won a "shameful victory," and Okawa reports that the feeling is the same throughout the "Techno Goliath's" home country.

The same article implies that Choi will take on Minowaman in the next round of the Super Hulk Tournament, and basically says that Choi will disgrace himself no matter who he faces in the tournament because of the size disparity between he and the other fighters.

That's pretty dumb imo. There will only be a couple people in the world that ha can face and it won't be a size difference. What did they expect?

It makes you feel bad for Choi for being a freak of nature. It isn't his fault he is a damn goliath.

What's that have to do with HMC getting no love in Korea?

I agree that Japan loves its freak shows, which is one of the reasons MMA shows are losing a bit of their glamor over there. Fans want to see more legitimate matchups, and less of some of these crazy ones.
