A few months after his DREAM.17 bout this September, Shinya Aoki, who has moved his training camp out of Japan and into the Evolve MMA gym in Singapore, is likely to fight outside of Asia once again. Bellator lightweight champion Eddie Alvarez has been asking for a rematch against Aoki for quite some time now, and it looks like he's finally going to get his request.

The two met on Japan's New Year's Eve show almost three years ago, with Aoki only needing a minute and 32 seconds to lock in a submission.

If this does in fact go down, I don't know who I would go with. Probably Aoki again for the simple fact that his bjj is off the chain. He already caught Eddie once, although it was pretty early in the fight. I'm just glad that being from different promotions hasn't stopped some of these organizations from seeking the best possible matches. It's a win/win for us fans . Can I get an AMEN to that

Eddie won't make the same mistake twice. Alvarez by dominating UD.

Amen! I say UD for Alverez as well.

Alvarez by UD.

Melendez showed the perfect formula for defeating Aoki, and I believe Eddie can replicate or even top that.

If Alvarez can box and stay on his feet, it should be an easy win for him IMO.

Aoki needs to evolve if he wants to become one of the bests. He really needs to work on his stand up and conventional western wrestling.

Or protecting their champions.

I think Alvarez will take this, but I'm pulling hard for Shinya. WAR AOKI!!!

tepid55 » Posted 2/4/07 2:11:00PM

I would probably pick Aoki again, his BJJ is just too good.

Theoutlaw08 » Posted 3/23/11 3:38:00PM

I think Alvarez wins via UD. But I would like to see these guys in the UFC soon, mixing it up with the top competition.
