Rumor about Aoki

I don't have any solid sources for this, but supposedly Aoki is unable to be healthy enough in time for Dream 3, and has to pull out. Apparently JZ was asked to stay in Japan just in case, and seems to be the guy they are going to replace Aoki with if this is true.
I don't have a source but have seen this in sherdog and a few other places. I hope this isn't true though =(

I didn't read anything about health being responsible for this, I just read in an interview that he doesn't feel he has enough time to prepare. He claimed a few weeks in between fights isn't long enough or something.

Until we get some kind of source for this, it's off to the smack talk section.

On mma.tv/tuf, people are now saying that JZ isn't going to replace Aoki, and that Tamura & Sakuraba are out of the MW GP.

What the hell?

How close someone must've been to starting a new thread titled, "Anyone else impressed with the production of the latest DREAM event?".

Well, according to sherdog Aoki has a "broken face", and he won't be able to compete in the 2nd round of the LW GP, being replaced by JZ. I'm so happy about this, this way if JZ wins the GP and the championship, we'll probably see a rematch with Aoki.

Nah, for me it's great news, I hate Aoki, and then he beats JZ, at least I got some measure of satisfaction with this, and in the rematch I hope JZ fights as he did in the 1st fight and beats him .
