Jose Canseco An MMA Star?
Total Pro Sports – There’s lots of people out there that would love to crawl into a ring with Jose Canseco, Mark Mcguire and Jason Giambi for starters, but it looks like the pleasure will go to 7 feet tall kickboxer, Hong Man Choi.
Canseco claims to be taking MMA seriously but that statement doesn’t hold much merit coming from a 44 year old juice pig. Seeing as how steroid enforcement is pretty much a joke in Japan, maybe we’ll see the most juiced up Canseco ever, but odds are he’s going to get knocked the f*** out. You know what they say, snitches get stitches, or in this case, snitches get beat up by a monstrous Chinese dudes.
The Japanese-based DREAM organization today announced an open-weight tournament that features, among others, UFC veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou, K-1 star Bob Sapp and former Major League Baseball player Jose Canseco.
Aside from the Canseco freak show, there should be a few notable fights in Mark Hunt vs. Gegard Mousasi, and Ikuhisa “Minowaman” Minowa vs. Bob Sapp. Although this open weight tourney won’t boast the best in MMA skills, it should feed your need for big guys fighting little guys.
Lets take a look at the other matches in the eight-man tournament at DREAM.9.
