Thanks for posting. I haven't seen him fight and haven't followed his career, but he seems to have great flexibility.

Yea, thanks for this post. I really like Aoki, and I've only seen a handful of his fights. Great stuff, he's crazy, intelligent and agressive fighter. Shame Aoki vs. Penn will never happen. How does the UFC claim to be better than boxing in that regard?

Man I hope Aoki beats Gilbert Melendez's ass this saturday. I have a feeling he's getting knocked out though.

Nate's only a brown belt. Of course that's under Cesar Gracie, so yea, he's awesome. I'll be a Diaz Bros. fan for life, I'd love to see Nate vs. Aoki @ lightweight, but Aoki's JJ is better overall than both Nick & Nate.

But Nick Diaz is one of my favorite fighters. If anyone watched his last fight agains Zarmokis, turn the volume off (Worst. Announcers. Ever. they ruin the fight). Nick vs. Gomi one of my favorite fights of all time, beauty is that gogoplata, or omoplata, whichever it is. [Lol, I appreciate and love BJJ, but obviously I don't know too much]

You put me in a hard spot Kaps. You know I got love for Nick.

But Shinya, he is unparalleled in the sub game. lol

I have to agree Gomi vs Nick was a great fight! It was a gogo he got him in, amazing seeing it for the first time in an mma bout.

Even though Aoki's bjj might be better I still have to say Nick's got this one if they ever fight. I hope Aoki beats Gilbert because it would be interesting see who they set up him with next!

Shinya wont fight Nick, not unless Nick drops back down to lightweight. After Sakurai whaaped Aoki's head in, I doubt he fights anything outside lightweight again.

One question though. Do you really want to see Abu Dhabi night? Nick-Shinya. Would just be a grappling competition.

LOL Cesar Gracie said on facebook this morning that Nick and Aoki almost fought in an elevator...

LMFAO! Really? I wonder what was said between the two. Can Nick even understand him? Can Shinya even understand him? :rofl:

Aoki was saying some **** before about wanting to kill Melendez and ****. Nick probably didn't take that very well considering he's a lunatic. I think you can tell when someone is pissed at you in any language. I bet you could've cut the tension in that elevator with a knife...

I'm sure Aoki comprehends the bare basics. Basically, "**** you." "No, **** you."
