No one can promote a fight card better than the Japanese. While the rest of the world knows that Dream 9's Super Hulk Tournament is a joke, when you make it into a cartoon it gets the juices flowing. Or does it?
For some reason, former baseball player Jose Canseco is part of the May 26 tournament. He's facing Korean kickboxer Hong Man Choi. The Japanese chose not to show the highlights of Canseco getting his head taken off by 46-year-old Vai Sikahema in one of his only two fights. The entire roll for Canseco shows him smacking home runs. This is seriously going to be bloodbath for Canseco against the 7-foot-2, 330-pound Korean and the Japanese aren't pretending it's going to be anything but.
Other highlights of the video include Bob Sapp executing a pile driver on Antonio "Minotauro" Nogueira (0:43 mark), Choi crushing an apple in the slow motion (2:11) and the video of Sokoudjou trying to climb into a cage at the zoo (slightly racist?).
