Shaq Picks the Biggest Fight in History

6/17/2009 4:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The phrase "pick on someone your own size" has never been truer -- as Shaquille O'Neal (7'1" 330 pounds) just challenged massive MMA fighter Hong Man Choi (7'2" 330 pounds) to a no-holds-barred fist fight.

Shaq shot this video calling out the giant after a recent training session -- and according to the clip, it seems like the challenge could be legit.

Hong's the guy who made Jose Canseco his mini-bitch back in May ... but really, is that an accomplishment?

He should probably wait a few years until he retires from the NBA. He could easily get a career ending injury from that fight. Hardly worth it for a publicity stunt.

An MMA fight is not "no-holds barred"??? This isn't the early 90's...MMA is highly regulated now

You are a hilarious fool. If you hate TMZ so much, why do you come here to comment? Why don't you leave and go to the Jonas Bros website where you belong? Idiot.

Have any of you guys seen Hong Man Choi fight? Shaq would kill him. Unlike Conseco, Shaq has been training MMA for quite sometime. At least four years now. Shaq is just as big, more athletic, more coordinated and in better condition. If Choi can't handle somebody with legitimate MMA training that's half his size, how will he ever handle somebody with legitimate MMA training that's just as big as him?
