“I’m excited to let you know that I have accepted DREAM’s offer to fight against Hong-man Choi on December 31 at Dynamite show … We arranged all details and the contract has been signed – the fight is officially on.”
“I must say I’m happy with this opportunity to fight again in this year. This wasn’t the best year for me and I’m hoping that I’ll end it in a good spirit … Although I’m still having some difficulties with my old injuries there won’t be any excuses left in case of a bad result. I’ll handle (these) issues in January, but against Choi, I’ll be ready and nothing will stop me this time. I’ll just do my best and end this year with a win hopefully. Then I’ll focus on 2009 and work on the further steps in my career.”
Cro Cop makes it official, he will face 7’2″ Hong Man Choi at the 2008 Fields K-1 Dynamite show on New Years Eve. Contradicting rumors, the fight will be fought under MMA rules.
