Fighter Of The Week

Shinya Aoki is arguably the worlds best grappler. Behind his meak body and lack of ability to knockout his opponents out, he still has one of the most unforgiving guards in MMA. Aoki is known for his extravagant personality, flashy tights and submission finishes.

Aoki has fought some of the best lightweights in the world such as Hayato Sakurai, George Sotiropolous, Joanchim Hansen, Eddie Alvarez etc. At DREAM 16, Shinya Aoki fights against Brazilian Marcus Aurelio who specializes in BJJ. It should be a tough  battle between the two  grapplers, but I firmly believe it will be another W for the Japanese lightweight.
