We can all admit Shaq was pretty impressive in his MMA debut in the Sega classic ‘Shaq Fu‘. Armed with his high flaming roundhouse kick and of course the Shaq-urikin (perhaps the most overpowered move in any game), he mowed through his enemies as he was trapped in the ‘Second world’ (amazing story line, Christopher Nolan take note). We all know about Big Daddy’s desire to take on Big Asian Daddy Hong Man Choi and Light-Big Daddy Chuck Liddell. There’s a video out there of Shaq testing his stand up on a cardboard cut-out of Chuck Liddell. After he eventually knocks it down, Shaq taunts the cardboard as if he was unaware that it was an inanimate object.
On Inside MMA last night, Shaq Diesel appeared on the panel and discussed a hypothetical match-up against Hong Man Choi, former NBA players he would like to fight and Shaq also claimed that when he started training MMA, he began to win NBA Championships. [Source]
