He might, but you can't deny that Aoki's is pretty damn good. When you can submit Hellboy with a Gogoplata, you definitely know your sh** and know how to use it.

Extremely dumb statement.

These guys are on an elite level regardless of where you rank them. Fighting in Strikeforce is no joke. Just because it is outside of the UFC and you probably haven't heard of them prior to this doesn't mean you can discredit them or even try to discredit the people that are calling it fight of the year. If you had heard of them then you would already know that they are serious fighters. They put on a great show, which is more than can be said for some of the UFC fights lately.

Aoki couldn't own Sanchez, Stephenson, Florian, or Maynard?

He owned Hansen, JZ Cavalcante, Ribiero, and Eddie Alvarez...all of which are alot more well rounded than the above named fighters.

And if you think Joe Stephenson can beat Shinya Aoki I want some of the Kool-Aid you've been drinking. Joe couldn't get past Josh Neer or Kenny Florian.

And keep in mind that Aoki only really has 1 loss at LW. His other 3 were to MWs much like B.J. Aoki is a complete fighter at LW.

Eddie Alvarez is legit. He proved that in Japan when he steam rolled the tournament. And again when he raped the Bellator touranment. He'd make short work of the UFCs LW fighters. He has 1 loss at LW to Shinya Aoki. And One loss at WW. He's beaten Joachim Hansen, Kawajiri and a big handfull of some serious LW competition. Eddie Alvarez is the real deal.

Gilbert Melendez...before his loss to Thompson he was world ranked top 5. After seeing the cardio and TDD he was able to display against a fighter with Thompsons wrestling pedigree I was even more impressed than I was when he dominated Damm and Ishida on the ground in his recent outings. His wins...Ishida, Clay Guida, Josh Thompson, Kawajiri are pretty damn impressive. He'd give alot of UFC fighters fits at LW.

Josh Thompson fought for the UFC and acutally won 2 in a row before he got caught with a flash KO kick by Edwards. Josh is a beast. Dude holds victories over Razor Rob Mcoullough and Hermes Franca. His submission of Duane "Bang" Ludwig was pretty sick as well... Great cardio and wrestling. I can see Josh outstriking Joe, Clay, Nate, Tyson, Sherk, and Maynard pretty swiftly. And his wrestling ain't too shabby..
