Fedor vs. Hong Man-Choi at Yarennoka on NYE is a done deal

MMA Weekly is reporting that Fedor Emelianenko is officially slated to fight Korean K-1 kickboxer Hong Man-Choi on New Year’s Eve from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

No word on what the rules of the fight will be, as that was supposedly one of the sticking points between the two camps. It will probably be a mixed martial arts bout but with rules more like you see in the United States than in Japan (i.e. no head stomps, soccer kicks, foot stomps, or knees to the head on the ground).
