i think gz, but aoki is a master at submissions. Terrible match-up stylistically for Aoki, thats why i think GZ takes it. Both are great fighters though. If UFC signed either fighter they would dominate all(with the exception of bj penn)

JZ will win the standup and GNP from the top to a decision win.

Sick fight this will be. I just think JZ will wear him down early with GNP and on the feet where IMO he's better.Plus ATT has some great BJJ practicioners so JZ will be ready for the subs. So JZ will watch out for the subs and wear him down.

I got money on a late fight stoppage for JZ.

JZ, ref stoppage in the third, after he's worn him down. Aoki is great at submissions though, so JZ need to be careful which I'm sure he will. They both would be great additions to the already deep LW division.

my JJ heart says to go with aoki...but my brain says the logical choice is JZ.

i have to go with JZ by KO, although i will be rooting for aoki the entire time

as much as i like shinya and want to pick him, i dont think he has much of a chance against JZ. JZ is the best LW most people have never heard of and hes easily top 3 in the world and is riding a very successful streak right now. JZ ko/tko early to middle of the fight.
