That Shinya Aoki, he's so overrated, what with him tapping these top LW's that many favored over him. Also, now that Aoki beat guys like JZ, they're overrated and were never that good to begin with. But Jens Pulver, man, he's still a top 155'er.

Gotta love it man. We need someone like Aoki to come over and prove this stereotype of Japanese fighters beings cans wrong.

No one thinks Japan is full of cans, but i do think many of the fighters over there are overrated. I don't care if its considered cool to be a big fan of the Japanese fighters. There are some good ones over there, but their first and second tier guys are no better or worse than the UFCs'. The only difference i see is that the UFC has a third and a forth tier.

What ends up happening then is the top Japanese guys fighting a lot of dudes they really shouldnt be fighting, and look REALLY good doing it.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

Aoki for what it's worth won't come to the UFC because Japanese MMA fans are feeling very betrayed lately with Ishii and Akiyama both leaving Japan and Aoki doesn't want rumors to start he will leave to.

I'm sure Aoki wants to fight BJ and I can't blame him.

Personally I think BJ would be too much for Aoki because his submission defense would be too much and standing he will out strike him however I'll be honest I pick against Aoki when he's facing well rounded fighters and I've been wrong twice.

And honestly I'll pick against him if JZ vs Aoki 3 happens.

Another things people talk about how Japanese fighters are overrated but honestly guys the entire LW division of MMA is loaded and it's not because guys are fighting in Japan that they are being exposed it's that the LW division has so much talent that guys like Stevenson get exposed and fall off the map.

Also I think it's unfair to say that guys get overrated just because they fight in Japan. UFC fighters get overrated all the time also for every Sokky you have a Houston Alexander.

hahaha, quote of the week.. haha..

i dont see how everyone on this forum is writing off Aoki against Penn..

Aoki has fought strikers before and come out on top..

People on here literally froth at the mouth over Penn, if this fight goes to the ground, Penn is going to be in trouble..

i know its hard for you guys to believe, but Aoki looks better on the ground than Penn does

Shogun is my homeboy.

He needs a rematch with Joachim before he gets a chance at BJ imo, hes yet to be tested against a really brutal striker.

to prove a point, yes.. i think he would..

it seems like all BJ wants to do is prove hes the best so if there is any doubt in anyones mind (Aoki being better than him..) he will go out and prove that he is better..

Shogun is my homeboy.
