Shinya Aoki: Breaking Kawajiri’s Bone Not Enough, “I Was Hoping For an Open-Fracture”

Written by Tom Ngo
July 13th, 2010


While most would be happy with collecting a submission victory over a fighter as respected as Tatsuya Kawajiri, Dream lightweight champ Shinya Aoki was hoping for more.

“When I caught him and tried to submit him, I heard a loud crackle sound. He did not tap so I thought ‘Ok, this match just became a death-fight’ and I was going to destroy his leg,” Aoki told SportsNavi (translated by MiddleEasy). “I knew Kawajiri never taps so I could not win without breaking his bone.

“I was hoping for an open-fracture.”

Aoki’s achilles lock submission at Dream 15 was the second time in his last three outings where the controversial grappler left his foe severely wounded. The jiu jitsu wizard caught Mizuto Hirota in a hammerlock in the opening ticks of their match-up this past December. Although Aoki probably/most likely/definitely knew he was in position to break Hirota’s arm with the greatest of ease, Hirota refused to tap and …

Sandwiched between the bone-cracking wins was a unanimous decision thrashing to Strikeforce lightweight king Gilbert Melendez in April. Like most men, Aoki needed the guidance of a strong woman to set him straight … or wake his inner demon.

“After I lost, many people blamed me, but she helped me through it all,” Aoki said of his fiancé. “The people who mocked me in my fight versus Melendez, I wanted to kill them all. Even in this fight, too many people said ‘Kawajiri would win!’. I felt like telling these people ‘Go to hell!’

Although “Tobikan Judan” was pushing a Dream 16 rematch against Melendez, Sherdog.com spoke with Gilbert’s pops on Monday and said a September bout would be too soon for them. However, Team Melendez has every intention on granting Aoki a mulligan on his home turf.
Wonder how much of this is lost in translation...

i don't see a whole lot wrong with it with the open fracture thing.

i thought he meant that was the extent that he wanted to go to simply to end the fight because he knew kawajiri wouldn't tap easily at all, you do as much as you gotta do (legally) to finish a fight.


basically he knew that he wasn't going to tap so he was thought he would HAVE to get an open fracture simply to win the fight? could be that, or he's just a brutal motherfucker :thumb02:

I don't know. Looking at that Achilles lock I think Aoki suddenly snapped the submission hold backwards without even trying to apply more and more pressure. He just snapped it back. Of course you can't tell just from looking if he actually did that, but it sure as hell looked like it.

If that is true, Aoki's a real asshole. It's not the first time he's had that type of intention though, eg, that hammer lock he subbed Hirota with, and then got up, flipped him off and screamed/swore at him. Can't wait to see Melendez wreck him again.

LOL what do you guys don't understand??

He was not willing to tap. Thats not Aokis fault at all! He is a fighter and he wants to win the fight.

i don't see a problem with it, he let go of the sub straight away too. it's the other fighters fault if he get's a bone broken in that kind of situation seeing no-one is stopping you from tapping.

Exactly! Either blame the Referee for not knowing what happened there. Or blame Kawajiri for to much Pride but hell not Aoki.
