Sorry if someone else posted it.

Aoki taught Hirota why pride comes before the fall.

“When I had his arm behind his back, I could feel it popping,” Aoki said. “I thought, 'Well, this guy's pride just won't let him tap, will it?' So without hesitation, I broke it. I heard it break, and I thought, 'Ah, there, I just broke it.' I was stopped afterward, but even if I hadn't been, continuing to break it more would have been fine by me.”

Overeem says Fedor is next!

“I want to fight Fedor in May or June, so he's my primary target from now on. I'll be training for him only,” proclaimed Overeem, who cited the prospect of a May-June date as one he is currently negotiating with Strikeforce.

There is some other good stuff in this article.

Aoki's has a weird way of apologizing. It happens but dang, that guy has some amazing skills on the ground.

I don't particularly care for Aoki, but I'm ok with him not apologizing at all. As a professional fighter you've got to know when and if you should tap; and what the consequences will be if you don't. It was pretty clear that Hirota was ready and willing to go out on his shield and I don't think that Aoki should be villianized for the snap.

I'm personally not to fond of his reaction to the victory either. But I don't find it any less appauling then Lesnar's post fight antics or BJ licking his opponent's blood off his gloves.

Aoki crossed the line in my book. I used to be a huge fan. This was a complete 180. Overeem will need a lot more then 4-5 months to train for Fedor imo.

Emotions run high in these fights and there is a lot of pride. Like Bojangalz said above

It's just part of it. I really don't think his reaction would have been the same if he would have tapped.

Aoki is just doing what he's told with that appology, I don't think he is sorry one bit, nor do I pretend to understand it, I just hope it doesn't become his thing. Overeem will probably get hurt or cut in the K-1 fight so he won't "be able" to fight Fedor. However....Manhoef vs Lawler!!! That should be a quick fight!!! Melvin at MW....awesome!!!

Fedor is next? after he faces Gary Goodrige, Wes Sims, Tank Abbott and other washed up fighters.

I'm partially joking, but god... please fight a top ranked fighter.
