Videos: Fedor vs. Aoki, Genghis Con’s “Coming Attractions” + More

(Props: Fightlinker)

At long last, we present the video of Wednesday’s grappling exhibition between Fedor Emelianenko and Shinya Aoki at DEEP/M-1 Challenge 3rd Edition. As you’ll see, the whole thing was really just a good-natured joke, with both fighters putting on a display that was more slapstick than combat. (But man do Emelianenko’s throws look smooth when they’re done with a 160-pound training dummy.) Fun stuff. Now let’s see the UFC do this with Lesnar and Penn


MMA highlight-film virtuoso Genghis Con has released previews of some of his works-in-progress in this ultra-slick "Coming Attractions" reel, featuring
Satoru Kitaoka, Katsuyori Shibata, Mitsuhiro Ishida, Andre Dida, Artur Kyshenko, Miguel Torres, and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic. In particular, the Cro Cop-themed final segment ("Maniac Cop 7") already looks epic.

The video quality sucks, but here’s footage of Don Frye‘s victorious appearance at Shark Fights 4 on Saturday, in which the Predator finished Rich Moss via rear-naked choke, 2:12 into round 1. TUF 7 vet Jesse Taylor also picked up his fifth-straight victory at the event, dispatching Eric DaVila by first-round rear-naked choke; JT Money is undefeated since being caught in CB Dollaway‘s "Peruvian Necktie" last July. You can read a more detailed recap of the Shark Fights event here.

I think the Gracie nuthuggers are going to have to deal with the fact that Sambo's ground game with all its joint locks makes it just as efficient as BJJ while the other parts of it like standup are much superior to BJJ.
Considering both BJJ and Sambo come from judo, it shouldn't be a surprise and its interesting to see how these two offshoots evolved in the past 80-90 years.

I think Fedor was carrying a few extra pounds and didnt want to flash the cottage cheese gams because the Sambo gi is worn with short shorts not the TKD ones.

As far as any randori is concerned where the participants are going at half speed, this was pretty much what was expected with at least 2-3 moments where you just went "Ni-i-i-i-ce".

Fedor's top hebe said that he will most likely fight in Japan in July or August which should fall right about the time of DREAM 10 on July 20.

The Fedor/Aoki video was cute.... I think that's the first time I've ever used that word

Fedor probably brought Aoki to Build-a-Bear after the match.
Luukos- May 4, 2009 at 11:37 am
They couldn't do that with Penn and lesnar, lesnar has no subs, and Penn would sub him for real.

Is it bad that watching Fedor be nice gives me good little tummy shivers?
NukeBlast- May 4, 2009 at 10:28 am
I don't dislike Aoki...but get real he's no way near #1.

Same for Maia....really fun too watch, but he's not a MMA champ.
damarx- May 4, 2009 at 10:26 am
So I am assuming you dislike Maia? He does the same exact shit.
NukeBlast- May 4, 2009 at 10:17 am
Bring Aoki to UFC and we'll see.....damn he'll be lost without is gay pink pants.

Let's see how pulling guard works against jab and he'll fly out of the cage.

Let's see if he can take Sherk down.

Aoki is the most one dimension fighter that ever lived....he'll face BJ, Florian, Guida, Griffin, sanchez etc only once and he'll never get back from the dead.

I am Fedors love child
Bonk!- May 4, 2009 at 9:38 am
LOL @ calling Sakurai a no name can.
NIGHTRIDER- May 4, 2009 at 9:21 am
Nukeblast, if you think Hayato Sakurai is a no-name can then you're a fucking fool. Get educated on MMA before you speak.
smashfacekillah- May 4, 2009 at 9:17 am
Thats some funny fuckin shit
NukeBlast- May 4, 2009 at 9:06 am
Aoki beating you make my day.

Guy has no standup....he have to pull guard to ends up on the ground.

He even get KOed by a no-name can.

BJ would owned him bad...also as all of the UFC lightweight.

Aoki is a freaking joke....only good with soup cans.

Fedor seems like a big cuddly teddy bear. I just want to give him a hug. In a platonic, non-homo way.
Old, Bald and Irish- May 4, 2009 at 8:30 am
Fedor vs Aoki: That looked like fun. Expect to see more of Fedor in Japan. Affliction is done.

GhengisCon vid: Ghengis is the man! Ya know, I'm so old that I actually remember seeing that "Feature Presentation" trailer in the first few seconds of the video when I went to the movies in the 70's.

Torres is so cool, he makes me want to be Mexican.

Also, I miss the old Cro Cop. Here's to hoping his come-back lives up to our expectations.

Don Frye: Yo, Don! Where's the red, white and blue tights?

"Check the guys knee!" Great comment!

Good for Frye. Sounds like the crowd was lovin' him. Although when Frye talked, it sounded like he was talking through a cancer kazoo.
Fedor vs Bas- May 4, 2009 at 8:28 am
Don Frye is the man. Who wants a mustache ride?
Wyatt- May 4, 2009 at 8:23 am
That video put me in a good mood for the day.
BackbaconBilly- May 4, 2009 at 8:09 am
That was good, cool to see the sportmanship between the 2 and even tho Fedor could have destroyed Aoki he allowed him to try out some moves against himself cause he knew the crowd would get a kick outta it.

In response to the below article which has no comments section...

We know there really is a trip to be won, the problem is the trip is worth 3k and you're getting $1-$20 per person entering to win. Do the math.. whoever the dollar per entry goes to is making a lot of profit. I personally don't really give a shit if/that you're scaming us I was just pointing it out because I thought it was kind of funny. I entered several times on both of my cell phones so you got over $10 out of me.. but I don't mind because one phone is my company provided phone and the other is on my parents family plan and I never see the bill for either. Again I'm not complaining and I really don't give a shit, but you are kinda acting like you're doing us a charity when really we're just giving you a ton of money. Would I do the same if I were in your position? Hell yes..

Why did they make Fedor and Aoki wear MMA gloves? Those things are handcuffs to grapplers.
Chiggs- May 4, 2009 at 7:53 am
Awesome vid, was kinda funny the way Fedor and Aoki were playin around laughing. Shinya would be unstoppable if he took to training with Feds. Dont undetstand why people still think Penn is better :/ Aoki would sub him out rather quickly I thinks..

Adead- May 4, 2009 at 7:25 am
They should do more match ups like Fedor and Shinya
