Isn’t it about time Hong Man Choi (7’2″, 320lbs) takes on someone his own size? NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal (7’1″, 325lbs) thinks so. Back in June, he challenged HMC to a fight after he retires from basketball. Today, Choi confirmed to Ariel Helwani that he would indeed fight Shaq if the opportunity presented itself. Shaq loves MMA, has been training for a long time and has joked with Dana White in the past about signing him to a UFC contract, so I tend to think Shaq wasn’t kidding.
The only missing piece is DREAM. Do we even have to ask if they’d be willing to book it? No, I don’t think we do.
