FEG event producer Sadaharu Tanikawa said in a press conference Sunday in Tokyo that Hong Man Choi may get the boot from K-1 kickboxing.
"I would like to lay off Hong Man Choi from K-1," Tanikawa said. "He is getting worse in K-1, and is not a competitive. He may do better in MMA. So I will consider offering him a fight in Dynamite if he is OK to fight under MMA rules."
Choi has fought twice previously under mixed martial arts rules. His first was against a comedian and his second against the number one heavyweight in the world, Fedor Emelianenko.
