First and foremost anybody that thinks that Kenny Florian is above Shinya Aoki in the top 5 really hasn't seen Shinyas carreer.

Second there are many fighters who win in Japan and do so in the U.S. as well...

Eddie Alvarez
Shogun
Jake Shields
Nick Diaz
Yushin Okami
Fabricio Werdum
B.J. Penn
Lyoto Machida

to name a few were picking up wins in Japan and doing well for themselves stateside as well.

Sometimes there just seems to be a jinx between both. I wouldn't say that one region has superior fighters. Not for a second.

You need to watch that fight. Melendez was robbed. Gilbert won that fight. And came back and avenged that loss.

I'm glad you pointed this out. You can't say that the greatest are fighting in the U.S. you can only say that your "favorites" are fighting in the U.S.

Because like them or not Shinya Aoki and Kawajiri would vandalize the UFCs LW division. I think Kawajiri would bulldoze everybody outside of B.J. Penn and Edgar.... and he'd have a very close fight with Edgar.

Aoki vs Penn...... I really couldn't call a winner.

Are you saying that if Anderson Silva is so great than why did he lose 2 of his PRIDE fights?
