Aoki can pull guard on an opponent by getting a hold of even a wrist, he's that dangerous.
He would maul 13 of the guys you listed. Joe Stevenson outboxing Aoki wouldn't happen for a second.
Joe would try to come in with that standard boxing style that has never been effective against ANY
elite fighter and Aoki would get a hold of a part of his body and tear it off or choke him out.
LOL @ Joe Stevenson being able to defeat Aoki.
And Shinya Aoki has every chance outside of Japan at the top 15. That includes Eddie Alvarez again.
21 of his 25 wins are by stoppage. He's got sick killer instinct. You're way wrong on this one.
How many times did he grab hold of Melendez and use that "killer instinct" None because its all he has and everyone knows it. Instead he just kept scooting around on his butt looking like a small child throwing a temper tantrum. Even when Melenzez recklessly dove into his guard Aoki failed to really mount any kind of offense. Face it Aoki is a great BJJ guy without any ability to get the fight down or strike to set up a TD. Aoki fighting Gilbert Melendez looked like Thales Leites trying to fight Anderson Silva if Leites somehow could have been even more terrified of Silva.
