fortunately, i have been able to spread the fear of the stretchy pants around the playground. however, my efforts are not enough as there are still people that do not recognize Aoki's skills. For those people, i have compiled a list of 10 good reasons to fear him in an effort to convert the non-believers:

10. He is a former police officer and balck belt in judo and BJJ

9. His nickname "Tobikan Judan" means "tenth degree black belt in jumping locks" and was given to him after success in numerous submission tournaments.

8. His gogoplata victory over Hell Boy is considered to be the first successful gogoplata in MMA competition.

7. He has defeated multiple Olympic medalists in his career.

6. He is only one of a select few who have used the De La Riva guard effectively in MMA. (it is rarely ever seen in MMA and he used in on JZ to deliver multiple head kicks)

5. He is the only fighter to pull off the flying triangle choke against major competition.

4. He once submitted a guy while standing via armlock

3. He is the first fighter to pull off a mounted gogoplata in professional competition



2. He gave Roger Gracie, the best HW JJ practitioner in the world, a hard time in their ADCC match despite being out-weighted by 65lbs.

1. Watch this HL and then tell me if you are still a non-believer: #1 reason to fear Aoki

Reason # 11 - Shinya had Gilby Melendez scarred in 2006, they were supposed to Fight but Gilby pulled out. I'd love to see that Fight.

Reason # 12 - It doesn't matter how hard you are or how tough you are, Shinya will find a way to Win. He'll Piggy Back ride yo ass for a Dominated Decision. (JZ)

Great List !

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he 1 of only 2 fighters to have multiple gogoplata victories in professional competition...Brad Imes being the other?

That is the correct but 1 of 2 doesnt sound special enough for Aoki, especially since Imes did his against cans

I have that standing armlock GIF and did have it as an avatar but have lost it damn i love that gif and want it as my avvy again!!!!!!!

*EDIT* see my profile for GIF of it jjfreak you can get someone to make an avvy of it for yourself if you want .... since my boy swick ruined yours and you cant use the davis one i made for you for a while

well i am no fair weather fan but point taken. Grappler has already made me an Aoki avatar but after my avatar bet sentence is up i was going to ask him to make me a new one including the mounted gogo.

Aoki and Davis have been my favorites for years. i was a Davis fan when he was back in the New England boxing circuit so my fanatacism carried over into his MMA debut. and Aoki became my second favorite fighter when i saw him grapple Roger Gracie in 2005 and then later when he got that gogo on Hell Boy it reaffirmed my fandom of him.

Another reason:



Too bad we won't see him in the UFC. Commissions won't allow those stretchy pants!

Why do you even need ten reasons Any dude that considers Mounted Triangles/gogoplatas, Sitting Armbars, and triangles from rubber guard go to submissions is a scary dude, especially given the facts that he pulls them off, often and rather easily.

Not saying it didin't work... just saying I do not like that strategy à la nick serra one bit. Oh and i'm pretty sure he wouldn't fare well in the UFC with that either.

I also think Aoki would struggle in the UFC, particularly because the ring is three times as large, so there's more room for wrestlers to employ a sprawl and brawl gameplan. In a ring it's very easy to close the distance. He would win quite a bit as well though. His grip is like stick-em and he's super-fast once he gets close. He can be climbing up your back lickety-split. I underestimate him a lot, but I neve deny that he has one of, if not the most, dangerous submission game in MMA.

He's kind of a guy I overlooked as far as fightes of the year, probably because of his brutal loss to Joachim. A case could be made though as he has fought a whopping 7 times this year (one a NC) and beat Gesias Cavalcanti, Caol Uno, and Eddie Alvarez...not to mention he pulled ofthe first mounted gogoplata in MMA
