This just in: freaky giant Hong Man Choi was denied a fighting license today by the CSAC for undisclosed medical reasons. My bet is the world’s largest herpes sore. That leaves penis-chested Brock Lesnar without an opponent. All this oh so annoying paperwork is really starting to piss off K1 USA promoter Mike Kogan, who is apparently hoping his use of the word ‘Fuck’ will bring him the same luck it affords Dana White:
“Why would I sell tickets to the largest venue in the country to hold a pay-per-view, sell the worldwide rights and then sit on my (expletive) and not do what I need to do to be licensed? It’s crazy. This is a process and we’re going through that process and we will be licensed.”
Why oh why indeed? Newsflash, Kogan: Perhaps if the event wasn’t next weekend and you weren’t fucking the dog on the paperwork, we’d believe you. As it is, there’s something called reality that’s a bit hard to ignore.
Of course, it’s interesting to note this article is written by Kevin Iole, who was the creepy molester-looking guy interviewed for no reason on the Countdown to UFC 71 show. Obviously facts are facts, but it is kind of interesting that Kevin magically shows up in UFC programming, and is now writing pretty damning articles regarding the fate of K1 Dynamite. I’m just sayin’!
UPDATE: Speculation on the interwebs is that Choi’s denial may have something to do with the fact that he was knocked out on March 3rd during K1’s Hawaii show. Typically after getting KO’ed a fighter is suspended for 90 days, so who knows. Also a possibility is that Hong Man Choi is actually a cyborg.
