He's recently apologized, though it seems pretty weak to me.

It was an ugly night at times for DREAM and Sengoku as the Japanese promotions combined to battle at Dynamite! 2009 in Saitama, Japan on New Year's Ever. A very solid fight card was marred by the out-of-control behavior of Japan's biggest MMA star Shinya Aoki. The 26-year-old jiu-jitsu ace snap his opponent's arm and gave everyone he could the middle finger. That included his downed victim Mizuto Hirota, the crowd and Hirota's corner. Aoki apologized for flipping everyone the bird:
Quote:
"After my fight, I was excited, and so I did something rude that I should apologize for. But that showed just how excited I was over that fight."
But he wasn't about to say sorry for cracking Hirota's humerus:
Quote:
"When I had his arm behind his back, I could feel it popping," said Aoki. "I thought, 'Well, this guy's pride just won't let him tap, will it?' So without hesitation, I broke it. I heard it break, and I thought, 'Ah, there, I just broke it.' I was stopped afterward, but even if I hadn't been, continuing to break it more would have been fine by me."
Then Aoki went all Kellen Winslow Jr. essentially stating he's an [expletive] soldier: "When [DREAM's event producer Keiichi] Sasahara tells me to go and do something, I do it, and that's how I live my life. If Sasahara tells me to go to Strikeforce and take them out or 'Go and kill that guy,' I'm going to do it. Even if he tells me to go take out [FEG executive Sadaharu] Tanigawa, I'd do that too." Aoki also called out Japanese rival lightweight Tatsuya Kawajiri: "I received a challenge from [Kawajiri], and so without telling him to shut the [expletive] up, I accept the challenge and look forward to our fight." Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker was in Japan for the event with the goal of signing Aoki for a U.S. fight in the first quarter of 2010.

Honestly, I never really like him, he always came off kinda weird to me. Just a strange guy in my mind! But I love to see him fighting.

And that what he said there wasn't a apology!

But at one point he was right, he couldn't do anything else then break his arm. If the guy has to much pride like he mentioned, then he deserves it sad but true. Maybe he learns from this mistake in the future. Just tap man, there is no shame in doing so.

here's what I really think, Aoki is a douche that needs to get punched in the face. Yes, though Hirota displayed a little too much heart by not tapping earlier the arm breakage was unecessary. Aoki didn't even give the guy a chance to tap at that last attempt he just went all out for the kill. To makes things worst he parades around the ring acting like a prick & even admitting to intentionally breaking the guys arm afterwards. Oh how I wished he'd come to the US so he'd get Sakurai-ed again. I'll give the guy props for having a brilliant groundgame that applies good to modern day mma but in the US he wont be able to do much against the likes of bigger & stronger opponents like the UFC & Strikeforce lightweight rosters that majority are good solid wrestlers with good enough ground game to out power Aoki in positions. He'll get Lesnar-ed..against the top LW in the US...though I'd be more happy with another Sakurai-like punch to his ugly face that sends him looking retarded again..

I think the reason he was so angry and/or cocky what have you after the fight was due to the massive bad blood between Sengoku and DREAM. I Read the article on sherdog last night about it and thats what it sounds like to me.

Man his apology actually makes him sound more like a douchebag, I mean he actually says that he knew his arm was broken but if it hadn't of been stopped he would have just kept wrecking it. F*** Aoki I had little interest in seeing him get his ass beat by BJ before but I would be down to see him get Diego'd now.

So what should he have done? He said it was popping and the guy wasn't tapping. Should he have let go and tried for a different sub, to see if that one would hurt him enough to make him tap? Isn't it his job, when it comes to submissions, to either threaten a fighter with, or injure your opponent until you win?

I seriously don't understand how anyone can have a problem with him breaking the arm. The guy could easily have verbally tapped, and Aoki would have stopped. Nothing he said implied that he would have broken it had he not submitted.

It is the fighters job to submit and/or the refs job to stop it when a fighter is in danger.

I understand him breaking the arm cause the guy wouldn't tap but to say after you broke it that you would have been happy to continue to do further damage (after the break) had the ref not stopped it is a little sadistic, I mean its one thing to break his arm but to almost sound disappointed you didn't get to do even more damage? Yay, maybe next time the ref won't stop it and he can rip the bone right through the skin.

I think you are reading that into it.
Quote:

That just tells me that he doesn't care one way or another if the guy is too stupid to submit. What if he had simply dislocated it, let go because he had thought it was broken, and then Hirota turned around and Ko'd him with a scott smith-esque balboa punch? We would all be calling him a fool for not finishing the fight.

All I'm saying is that I'm not hearing the same thing you are when I read his comments.

Also, on a side note, does anyone else know how good his english is? (if he can speak it at all?) If he is being translated, I wonder if that changes this at all. Just curious.

I never really considered the fact that something could be lost in translation, hmm.
