Aokiplata (pic) From DREAM.4

Quote:
If you watched DREAM 4 on HDNet, you were amazed by the submission move Shinya Aoki pulled out of his bag of tricks. Bas Rutten was commentating and said he had never seen a submission like that ever before - it was a version of gogoplata from the top position.

We here are Five Ounces of Pain are dubbing it the “Aokiplata” (read more here)



UPDATE- some clarification on the move requested by readers - Aoki is in the mount position. Opponent on his back. Aoki wrapped his right leg UNDER the left shoulder of Nagata, then placed the top of his right foot on Nagata’s throat. He’s then pulling on the back of his opponents head, to force pressure on the throat into the foot.

as i watched that sub i was going "uhhhh......what the hell was that !?!?! ". I have to admit i wasnt that into Aoki but after hearing among others Damone going on about him ive watched all i could come over and....MAN , this guy with some awsome standup could be p4p best in the world

He definately got the p4p best ground game in MMA that's fo sho. One could make the argument that BJ has more sount technique, but Aoki is just too amazing for me to neglect his spot as the p4p best ground fihgter in the world.

Too bad for you though he subbed your countryman Joachim Hansen, so I can understand you are not totally into him yet... But Joachim is awesome, Aoki is awesome, Rainbow pants are awesome and gogo's are freaking exuberent, so there you go.

It wasn't til I read about it here on the forum that I realized Aoki got the gogo from mount. Rewatched the fight and my jaw dropped. That sub was about as offbeat as they come. Definitely a contender for SOTY. At first, I was like - what the hell?! - NECK CRANK?

Not in MMA. He's one of if not the best pure grappler, but my man-Shinya-is the best MMA grappler right now.

Aoki is awesome and is the best fighter in the world right now.

I believe he actually tried to pull of the normal Gogo but it didn't work, so he settled for this one.

This one actually looks easier than the normal Gogo.

I thoroughly think Aoki's ground game is better than BJ Penn's. BJ's, while definitely world class, effective, and awesome, is just a bit below Aoki's.

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.
