The news of Mighty Mo’s opponent being chosen by vote was pretty cool, but the promoters of K-1 ColliZion have really outdone themselves now. On October 24, Romanian fighter Alexandru “Sandu” Lungu will step into the ring. Lungu, a colossal near 400 pound judoka, is perhaps best known for being KO’d by James Thompson in the dying days of Pride at Pride 30. Like Mo, his opponent will be decided by fan vote, this time between Butterbean and Jesse Smith, better known as Justice in the recent American Gladiators run. Vote now here.
All I can say is, they really don’t make freak show fights like this often these days. For you fans who have a soft spot in your heart for Bob Sapp v. Akebono (and, I admit, I am one of you), enjoy.
