The greatest tragedy in MMA is never having Shaq vs. Hong Man Choi

The greatest tragedy in MMA is never having Shaq vs. Hong Man Choi

There are many many fights in MMA that never happened. You always hear about the same couple of fights; Fedor vs. literally every heavyweight he never fought, Wand vs. Shogun, Kid vs. Faber, Anderson vs. GSP, Rickson vs. Sakuraba. These are the fights you hear over and over from people in the MMA world, endlessly debating who would've won in their prime. Well it doesn't matter, not in the least bit. Do you want to know why?

Because the greatest mixed martial arts bout to have never happened isn't any of these. It's Hong Man Choi vs. Shaquille O'Neal. This is the freak fight to end all of freak fights. Just imagine this at a Dynamite event on new years eve, Saitama Super Arena, thousands of fans and you can hear a pin drop as the bell rings, Shaq and Hong Man Choi meet at the center of the white ring. If you don't get goosebumps then you don't know how to have fun.

I have news for you folks! The dream isn't dead as Shaq is still training doing some work on the pads, so hopefully one day, we will see the one fight to rule them all Shaq vs. Hong Man Choi.

first off i'd like to say, FUCK YOU LAPLANTE.

second, i been watching mma for almost a decade, at what era did people clamor to match up wand and shogun? they both came from the same gym and were training partners and each other cornermen. when was that fight EVER expected to be made?

BUT FUCK IM STILL MAD about Fedor VS Coulture

Yeah right... Shaq doesn't even punch like a girl...he punches like a child. The punch at Barkley was a joke, and watch him try and hit Brad Miller when Miller isn't even looking.

I can't imagine that fight would be any more(or less) entertaining than Canseco/Choi... .which was at the opposite pole of entertaining.
