M-1 fighting Global has come out and denied that there will be an event on New Years eve in Japan, saying there was inadequet time to prepare.
Despite this, it may still happen.

Choi Mu Bae or Hong Man Choi? I would be satisfied with Barnett/Monson/Arona, but one of the Choi's, what a joke.

Arona would be a interesting re-match. Hell, even a re-match with Babalu would intrigue me.

that is a bit harsh for me, but I understand your rationale. He needs to fight a barnett or someone of that ilk who is a free agent

Fedor is definitely tarnishing his legacy with all these crap fights. Since the Mirko fight, he has only gone against Zulu, Coleman, Hunt and Lindland. That is sad. Can we really keep him at #1 if he hasn't fought any one arguably top 10 guy in the last 2+ years.

What event is this? I see the MMA site says M-1 is lending him to another organization. So....is it a pay-per-view?
EDIT: The K-1 dynamite event?

Hong Man Choi is not the most mobile of fighters at his freshest, and if he fights on 12/31, it will be after the K-1 World Grand Prix on 12/8.
He's slotted to fight Le Banner first, if he wins, then the winner of Schilt_Feitosa, and if he further advances, the winner of the other bracket, mostly likely Bonjasky.
Choi's height makes him very hard to punch, anyone who fights him that night will chop at his legs, he'll probably be at least still slightly hobbled and less able than usual to elude Fedor's shoot.
Unless Fedorina Alexsackovich Emelianenko has lost it, who knows in this upset filled time, he'll throw Choi down and pound him out fast, maybe brutally like Kharitinov did to Semmy Schilt, that was extra harsh and messy.
Fedor should fight a real MMA Superheavyweight to reclaim his cult emperor status - Antonio "Junior" Silva, that's a fight I would like to see.

I hear you about UFC contract BS, I simply mean that people may look back to that rejection as the end of Fedor's reign as #1. He'd be better respected 20 years from now if he had accepted it.

I still want Fedor in the UFC of course. He didn't want to sign with the UFC so he could join the Russian Sambo tournaments. He won the last tournament without really even fighting b/c everyone he was supposed to face disqualified themselves before the fight so they didn't have to fight him. There was no gold medal match b/c the 2nd place guy was happy enough to get silver and forfeited.
