Brock Lesnar’s MMA debut may have to wait. Originally scheduled to headline the K-1/Elite XC combined “Dynamite! USA” show promoted by FEG, the fight seems to be off.
Lesnar’s scheduled opponent, Korean kickboxer Hong-Man Choi was denied his fighter license for the proposed June 2nd bout at the L.A. Coliseum. No official reason was reported.
So what happens now? Well, the promotion will likely try and go back to the commission and get the match back on the card. If they can’t, it seems a little late to find any replacement, let alone a “suitable replacement” for the former WWE wrestling star.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the entire card is in jeopardy as well. According to TheFightNetwork.com, there are a number of legal problems which could prevent the show from happening at all.
Mike Kogan, promoter from FEG USA, laughs off such concerns. Kogan responded to the website article by stating, “I know they have to get people to hit their website, but to me, that is insulting because I’m a professional promoter. Does the commission have certain things it wants from us? Yes. Have we been filing things with the commission? Yes. Will we be licensed? Yes.”
Ten days to go, we’ll see.
