Dream Told Cro Cop To Fight Hong Man Choi

Everyone thought that Alistair Overeem and Mirko Cro Cop would fight again on New Year’s Eve after their first encounter ended in a no contest due to low blows. Instead, Cro Cop has been given a fight against Hong Man Choi for FEG’s year end event – “Dynamite!!”

“It was the organizations wish that I fight him and I take my orders from them,” Cro Cop said during a recent interview.

After getting dominated for the first six minutes against Overeem, Cro Cop could no longer continue and the referee was forced to rule their fight a no contest. There’s no doubt that Overeem is the most disappointed in FEG’s decision not to give him another crack at the Croatian striker.

Now, Cro Cop will look to rebound against a formidable opponent who gave Fedor Emelianenko a run for his money last New Year’s Eve.
