Lauzon over Aoki? Are you on pot? Lauzon got subbed by G-Sot, Aoki would wrap him up easily.

Nowadays you need to be elite in two areas to get to the top and very competent in the other are to stay there.


The idea that Aoki would dominate is laughable. Specialists don't dominate.

G-Sot's chin was a lot better when he fought Lauzon than Aoki's is right now. Don't forget Lauzon gassed out by going for the finish in the 1st against Soti. Aoki doesn't really have the survival skills to handle a flurry from Lauzon.

Dominate? No. But I could see him beating Swanson, Jung, Koch, and Hioki. He has a decent chance against Guida and Lamas. Guys like Siver, Aldo, Mendes and Edgar will wreck him though.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Aoki would lose to the majority of UFC 155ers. I said it. He can't strike at all and his takedowns are mediocre at best.

He certainly wouldn't perform up to what his what his contract would likely be worth.

Having said that I'd like to see him in the UFC, but their too busy working on obtaining small boys and women to fill out their two new divisions.

Aoki would have troubles with a few guys, but other than that he will do well at 145.

I'm partial to Jiu Jitsu fighters, I hope Aoki does come to the UFC. I'm not sure he fairs too well at either 145 or 155, but that being said, I'd still be pumped if Aoki moved over and I'd root for his success, big time.

I think he might hate Aoki more than you hate Sonnen lol. At least you think Sonnen could beat a top 10 :P

Aoki has improved a fair amount since last fighting in the States. He would do well at FW, beat almost all of the top ten other than a Mendes or Edgar most likely. His striking is still nothing great, but he could get guys down. His takedowns have improved a lot, and he would be bigger at fw
