Oh man, I hope this happens. So bad. So so bad. I just looked up Nick Thompson's record, and the guy is 35-9-1. And the last time he lost, he was fighting Karo Parisyan. And given that most of his victories are by chokes, I predict a very unconcious Maoshan. I think this will be up there with the Japanese Kiai master and John Marsh versus the San Soo guy, and The Omar debacle in great moments in challenge matches.
Also, how exactly did Nick respond to the challenge? Email, youtube comment, telegraph? Do we have a copy of it? And what's all this business about 40,000 dollars?
