Shinya Aoki says most of the best fighters are in the US and he wouldn't mind testing the waters.

I now respect him more than Gomi because hes willing to face competition outside his native lands and mostly native fighters.

dont think he'll do good in a cage, if he gets pushed against the Cage, that would screw up his whole game, and in the UFC most guys are wrestlers and would probably do that. really dont think Aoki would do good in a Cage.

I think Aoki would do very well in the UFC ecspecially in a division full of wrestlers. Hes so good off his back, i cant see him losing to anyone other than BJ because i think hes the only one who has JJ even on the same level and BJ has better stand up.

I thought that myself but Aoki is a crafty son of a bitch. He probably couldnt defend the clinch to the cage/takedown but I could see him using his slick ground game to find a way to gain control and bring it to the center of the cage to finish via Aoki Rainbow Strangle Hold

The question I want to know is if he will be able to wear his patented colored spats.

1. Crack is illegal
2. Aoki's flying rubber guard could get him off the cage
3. WAR AOKI

i think that aoki could definetely beat sean sherk and any one else in the ufc with the exception of BJ Penn and maybe even kenny florian because kenny has pretty slick subs (not at the caliber of aoki or penn mind you) and good muai thai and BJ because he is a freak of nature and i think that BJ would beat GSP if they fought again (and that means alot because im a canadian) but i think the only way to find out is for him to get his A$$ in the ufc

guys, you can thank me for this. i tossed a penny in a wishing fountain yesterday and wished for this to happen.

I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anyone that thinks he would get destroyed in the UFC is obviously an idiot. call me a nuthugger all you want but to blind yourslef to this man's awesome talent is bafoonish. he would do well in the UFC and i think he would control all of the wrestlers and only face a real problem with BJ.

Dana, please allow the pants in the UFC, i beg of you.

THIS JUST MADE MY F*CKING DAY
