No disrespect to the Japanese people or the tragedy they have suffered, but Aoki is a proven douche so I coule care less if he was allowed to speak or not.

He wasnt in tears because Jimmy didnt give him the mike..
Dude, I didn't say he cried because he wasn't given the mic. Read my post and stop being ignorant. Fool.

I said he simply was not given the mic, and that he was so emotional, he should have had the chance to speak.

Don't be scared homie!

LOL at not asking for one.... jebus he was begging for one the second his name was called! yeah i thought it was really horrible... and id rather listen to Aoki in japanese and then translated to engrish, then have to listen to Diaz stumble thru the english language. did Strikeforce or Aoki not have a translater?! they didnt even send in someone to interview him.

Just rewatched last night, and it's pretty clear to me Aoki wanted the mic but was denied. From a couple other recent interviews I've seen, sounds like he's been practicing his english and I'd speculate he was hoping to try and make an impact on the American fans with it.

Aoki was the first fight on the televised card and he beat a c-level fighter that was hand picked for him to beat. There was no real reason for him to be given a post fight interview, there are a lot of times when dudes that fight early on a card dont get them, just because Aoki cried doesnt mean anyone owes im shit.

I would have liked to see him get interviewed. It's not like SF has to keep it tight so they have time to show some fights from the undercard, they always end 45 to 60 minutes early and then show some rerun of Californication or Inside Nascar...

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Does anyone really care that much ? fighters usually say rudimentary stuff post fight so its not like we're missing valuable insight and too the people saying he should speak because of the tragedy in Japan , on one hand yes i can see your point but on the other hand id rather get on with the show ive seen and heard enough about the disaster its very depressing and i watch the PPV to be entertained not reminded of all the suffering im not trying to disrespect anyone but thats how i feel and im sorry if i have , i do care and sympathise with the Japanese people.

How f***ing heartless are some people on here? Did anyone not notice what has happened in Japan? half of their country just got wiped out by a f***ing tsunami. It was a way bigger tragedy than 9/11 and we still hear about about that every day, but because its in a different country "F**k them", and people wonder why america is hated so much. Am actually fuming now.
