Aoki's damn good but I think Alvarez will look at the JZ fight and know what to avoid.
I just don't think Alvarez submission defense is as good as Aoki, and I don't think he hits as hard.

Realistically, Aoki won't carry this injury into his next fight, but Alvarez's submission game isn't going to get a whole helluva lot better.

It just seems, stylistically, like a bad matchup to me.
