Shinya Aoki meets champ Kotetsu Boku at 'ONE FC 8: Kings and Champions'

Quote:
Lightweight champion Kotetsu Boku (20-7-2) will face notable veteran Shinya Aoki (32-6) in April at "ONE FC 8: Kings and Champions," officials today announced.

The event and championship headliner takes place April 5 at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.

No other fights have yet been announced for the event, which is expected to stream via online pay-per-view in North America.

Boku, a 12-year vet who's competed for organizations such as Shooto and DREAM, is on a 7-2 run since mid-2009. In his ONE FC debut back in October, the Japanese-born South Korean scored a third-round TKO victory over Zorobabel Moreira to claim the inaugural lightweight title. Boku was on a badly damaged left leg before he ended the fight with an overhand right.

On the same card, Aoki scored a quick and easy triangle-choke submission of Arnaud Lepont. It marked Aoki's promotional debut and helped ease the sting of a Bellator loss to Eddie Alvarez in his previous bout. Most recently, the former Shooto and DREAM champ scored a submission victory (due to strikes) over Antonio McKee at DREAM.18. It marked his ninth win in his past 10 fights.

I am excited for this fight. I see Aoki displaying his improved striking, then dragging it to the ground the ground and subbing Boku

Zoro should have beat Boku but he showed the heart of a warrior. But Aoki by first round sub.

I'm not sure how often that will happen because if they make enough money they might be able to pay more. If they make enough then the pay days maybe such that the ONE FC guys may not want to go the UFC. However, I've been wrong before so we'll see.

Maybe its just me but I see few guys there that I think could compete at the UFC level and none with any chance of real success. There champs are lower mid tier UFC level good enough to keep employed but the kind of guy who wins one, loses one to mid level talent. I think a guy like Boku would at best be as successful as a guy like Sam Stout, win one lose one repeat.

I don't think it's about money really, it's a question of where they'll be more successful. Like Toxic just said, most of these guys aren't at a UFC level and the ones that are wouldn't be top talent. It loops back to the age old question, would you rather be a big fish in a small pond, or a small fish in a big pond? I know what I would pick.

Edit: not to mention of course that the thought of OneFC making enough money to pay their fighters more than the UFC is almost laughable, and that's coming from a huge One fan.

I think they have a few guys that could do well in the UFC. Guys like ERic Kelly, Roy Docyogen, Bae Young Kwon, Bibiano Fernandes, Eduard Folayang, Masakatsu Ueda, Shinya Aoki would all have good success in the UFC. Boku, Soo Chul Kim would all do okay.

Compared to UFC's good draws certainly not, but as long as they are lower/mid tier fighters (UFC level, but top OneFC level) they probably can match the pay. As they don't have US name value, the UFC won't pay them that much anyway, and those $4k+$4k(w) what the UFC pays their lower tier fighters without name value is something OneFC should be able to outmatch.

IMO Soo Chul Kim has a TON of potential. He is really, really improving and only 21 years old right now. He is a strong kid as well and I think he would do better vs most American wrestlers then many of the other Japanese imports.
I really think that kid has a bright future. Could be the best Japanese fighter in the world in 5 years.
Also I agree with you there are a couple guys that I think could work there way up to 10 fighters in the UFC. I don't see anyone right now that I think could challenge for a title but I see guys that could be above the middle tier for sure.

He's from South Korea not Japan as indicates already his name.
