(‘It’s not a skirt, you assholes. The Romans wore these. Read a book.’)
The surprises just keep coming for the New Year’s Eve K-1 Dynamite show. Jerome Le Banner is sick with the flu and has been forced to pull out of his fight with Mark Hunt, and Melvin Manhoef has agreed to take his place. Despite the incredible weight difference between the heavyweight Hunt and the sort of middleweight Manhoef, the two will fight an MMA bout under “Dream rules” for three five-minute rounds.
Is it a good idea for Manhoef, a vicious striker with an almost non-existent ground game to face a much heavier and damn near impossible to knock out fighter like Hunt, who also packs a serious wallop of his own? Short answer: no. No, it is probably not a good idea. Especially on short notice. But unlike many of the other bad ideas on the Dynamite NYE show, this one I’d actually love to see.
Dammit, Japan. Just when I want to curse your lack of rules and regulations, you go and do something like this to leave me more conflicted than ever. I just can’t quit you.
