Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Shinya Aoki to Face Mediocre Opponent at Dream.7

(‘I am experiencing now very much happiness!’)

The official Dream website announced the addition of two new bouts to Dream.7 on March 8, and one of them features Shinya Aoki taking on American fighter David Gardner.  What’s that, you say?  You’ve never heard of Gardner, who is 16-10 in his career and 2-2 in his last four fights?  Well don’t worry, because you’re not alone.

Apparently Aoki wanted a little tune-up before participating in April’s welterweight tournament, or maybe he was just worried that his tights would get mildewed if he left them in the closet too long between fights.  In any event, Aoki will get his chance to rack up another quick submission victory unless Gardner pulls off the crazy upset.  And if he does, what becomes of Aoki’s cherished WAMMA lightweight title?  Probably nothing, since the fight will reportedly take place at 163 pounds, and also because Aoki will almost certainly win unless he is struck down by the hand of God, which would be a new one for the Sherdog Fight Finder.

Oh yeah, also announced was Mitsuhiro Ishida taking on Daisuke Nakamura in a lightweight bout.  So there’s that, too.  The whole thing, including the scheduled featherweight tournament, is set to air on HDNet.

Another card that will be better than the crapfest the UFC vomits out than you will manage to denigrate at every turn.

You fucking ass licking piece of shit.

Have a nice weekend.

Check out Kitaoka in the background with his "Yeah, good showing. But I would've done better" face.
