Ken Imai, Mirko Cro Cop’s agent recently admitted that he turned down an offer to fight K-1 Superstar Semmy Schilt under MMA rules at Dream 1.
“In DREAM first fight, I reject some matchmake plan,” Imai told Kamipro Magazine. This is not Mirko’s but my decision. For example, I said no about Mirko vs Semmy Schilt (MMA rules). For Mirko’s “Dream” first match, Semmy is too hard.”
Cro Cop recently defeated Tatsuya Mizuno at Dream 1 in a dominant performance punctuated by an excellent display of boxing from the already gifted kick boxer.
