After Satoshi Ishii won the Olympic judo gold medal, he promptly said he'd like to fight Fedor Emelianenko in a mixed martial arts match.

That doesn't look like it's going to happen any time soon, but Ishii is ready to try MMA, and he has his sights set on a couple of well-known opponents, the former Pride star Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic and the Korean giant Hong Man Choi.

Ishii is quoted in an article at saying that he knows he's starting from scratch in MMA, but he would like to fight a big name like Cro Cop, who is back to fighting in Japan after an unsuccessful stint in UFC, or Choi, the 7-foot-2 kickboxer who took on Fedor last New Year's Eve.

Ishii isn't ready for any of them, his MMA Game hasn't came through as much as FEG wanted him too, that's why he's not Fighting on New Years Eve

Ishii vs. Cro Cop would be a bloodier fight than Cro Cop vs. Dos Carras Jr. or whatever his name was. I'd like to see Ishii throw Choi around though...
