Don't get me wrong, the sub was swankness, but Rumina's flying armbar was just perfect. So fast, so awesome. Best sub ever.

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.
His striking is getting better. He threw some decent kicks in the first JZ fight and has improved boxing. Aoki doesn't always need to jump into guard, he can just attach himself to fools, like when he just attacked himself to Kikuchi in their second fight.

That sub was just pure perfection like you said. I just watched it and then after I realized I shouldn't have said the aokiplata was better because it isn't. It's still awesome though.

That sub was awesome. I watched the fight knowing about the finish and there is a bit earlier in the fight when he is on top and mounted and tries for it but doesn't get it. So he waits until another opportunity presents itself and locks it in.

Is Aoki's jitz now sow good he decides on outlandish finishes for a fight even before he gets in the ring?

Shit man, I don't blame you for saying the Bonerplata was better than the flying armbar. Both subs were awesome, both perfection.

Yep, his BJJ is so good that he goes for outlandish subs. I fully expect him to pull off a flying gogo soon.

Damone,

How do you think Aoki would do against a strong wrestler like Sherk? Right now if Aoki and BJ were to fight I would pick BJ to win, how would you see that fight going as well?

I think Aoki would beat Sherk, since Sherk likes to take people down and Aoki wants peeps to do that to him. He has the best guard in MMA, and I can see him either subbing Sherk or winning a decision.

Penn, I don't know, I'm an Aoki fan boy, but Penn's a bad match-up, since his ground game is top notch and his stand-up is better (His takedown defense is top notch, too). Aoki could outwork him, though, if he attaches himself to Penn and gets to work sub attempts like he did against guys like JZ and Kikuchi.

With Sherk I think he would of learned from the BJ fight and would stand with Aoki (someone he would actually be able to stand with).

I question Aoki's heart and I think after taking some jabs from BJ and having some "takedowns" stuffed he would more or less give up (not give up but lose his willingness to really fight.)

They are both awesome. I love watching them. There's nothing better then a slick sub like that. I think they are better then a ko.
