This is evident, IMO, by how Aoki is able to use his submissions in a Royce Graciesque manner to finish every fight.

The kid is sick on the ground. Were he every to develop a solid striking game, he would be unstoppable.
Perhaps the lack of the developed stand up game(like Royce) is why he finishes all his fights by submission?

BJ doesn't because he has great stand up too.

Even with horrendous standup? I know he will jump into guard when standing but I feel there are guys that he would have an extremely hard time doing this too.

Ground game excellent, stand-up questionable. Pulling guard won't work everytime but he sure knows how to use it. Hope to see him improve his striking, with that he will really kick some ass.

This sub was extremely ironic because my friends and I were wondering if it was even possible to do a gogo from mount exactly 3 days before the fight when we were training at a gym. I watched the fight and immediately called my friend and just said, "You won't believe what just happened!"

That's such an awesome sub. It tops Sato's flying armbar and almost tops Chonan's flying scissor heelhook.

I don't think it beats Rumina's flying armbar.

Ya I guess I thought it was better then it is. You're right Rumina's armbar is better but aoki's gogo is at least top 5 if not top 3.
