    Re: Brock Lesnar vs. 7'2 "South Korean Hong-Man Choi in MMA boxing

    Fight is not going to happen? at least with Choi.

    mma.com

    According to a report on MMANews.com, Brock Lesnar's MMA debut may have to wait. Originally scheduled to headline the K-1/Elite XC combined "Dynamite! USA" show promoted by FEG, the fight seems to be off.

    Lesnar's scheduled opponent, Korean kickboxer Hong-Man Choi was denied his fighter license for the proposed June 2nd bout at the L.A. Coliseum. No official reason was reported.

    So what happens now? Well, the promotion will likely try and go back to the commission and get the match back on the card. If they can't, it seems a little late to find any replacement, let alone a "suitable replacement" for the former WWE wrestling star.

    If that wasn't bad enough, the entire card is in jeopardy as well. According to TheFightNetwork.com, there are a number of legal problems which could prevent the show from happening at all.




    We have been able to confirm that preliminary talks have started with FEG regarding potential new opponents for Brock Lesnar.

    We know of four names that are definitely under consideration, which are Tank Abbott, Ruben Villareal, Butterbean and James Thompson.

    Of those names, Abbott or Butterbean would have the most marquee value as a freak show fight for the U.S. PPV audience. Thompson is a question mark because even his own management can't ascertain what his Pride deal would prevent him from doing so he may be impossible. He also isn't likely to be chosen. Abbott has verbally said he would do the fight if asked.

    I watched a half hour commercial for this fight on showtime. I thought the fight was going to be on showtime not pay-per-view, I guess it doesn't matter now anyway.
