Fedor to fight in Japan on NYE? - Latest Developments

Tuesday 20 November 2007

Sherdog has today an article confirming that Fedor will fight in Japan on NYE. The article does not name any promotor. However, the opponent is Hong Man Choi.

I have been reluctant to post much around these rumors for several reasons:

-Choi is fighting in the K-1 GP finals Dec. 8. If he is KO’ed there, any fight on NYE is off.
-All the speculation would not be good for Choi leading up to the K-1 GP, it would also interfere with his preparation for any MMA event on NYE. As well as, of course taking his attention away from the GP tournament.
-K-1 has an Osaka event the same day, Choi is a K-1 fighter... Any new promotion would have to pay a lot to put on this fight.

This would of course be a fight that would draw a crowd, but you would need more than one fight, if it were to be hosted by a new promotion. My guess would be that it will either take place in Osaka, or a part of a Hustle pro-wrestling card.
