Mirko Cro Cop Confirms NYE Bout With Hong Man Choi

From Mirko's official blog:

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 officialy 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. I'm also happy to fight again in Japan at New Year's Eve, which is always truly a fantastic experience.

There were plenty of rumors circling around about this fight and I'll suggest once again that official information regarding my arrangements can be found only on www.mma-id.com, under my profile. Don't believe to any MMA source and keep in mind that some people are willing to do anything just to boost their traffic.

So how do I feel about this fight? I already told you that I'm excited and it's really a problem for me to accept this fight with only 14 days left to go. I've been training hard after my last fight and I'm ready to face the Korean giant. When you fight the opponent of that size, you just have to take the fight very seriously. Under MMA rules he's not experienced, but he's big and strong and that makes him dangerous.

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 this 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.

Thank you for being patient when waiting for this announcement and thank you from bottom of my heart for your huge support. Don't miss the show and have fun with your famillies and friends until then!
