Wednesday Morning MMA Link Club: Worst Blind Date Ever


(Shinya Aoki tries to hide his disgust next to kickboxer/cosplayer Yuichiro Nagashima, who he’ll be facing in a strange mixed-rules bout at Dynamite!! 2010. Though we suppose any match against Nagashima could be described as "strange, mixed-rules.")

Aoki just can't believe that he's being outweirded by an opponent. I can't say I blame him because Aoki is the king of weird.

"Georges "Rush" St. Pierre will be one step away from cleaning up the 170-pound division"

According to some he already has, is there an officially recognized point where a division is "cleaned out"?

Japan mma is dead... thank god. Freak show.

Jake sheilds is going to be owned... the whole article should just be the part in italics.

And everytime I read one of these poor fedor and those bastards at m1 holding him back I wanna choke the writer. Fedor is an owner in m-1, not just their only fighter (after moussai left and got exposed anyway) That's not his management team..... they are his PARTNERS. If fedor wanted to fight or if he wanted to actually get in the deep end of the pool he could. He has no interest in any fight he would actually have to be the demi god so many pretend he still is. Fedor wants to coast into retirement. Can we finally move past this russian con?

@Cock_ChestnarThanks for the heads-up...CMS is acting screwy today.

Aoki's only disgusted because he knows he could wear that outfit better.

CP, versus and lowkick links are broken.

That shit is straight outa Thunderdome!

But its a moot point because Aoki is Japans last marketable fighter so you can bet he will get the better end of a 2-headed coin en-route to a short night and a bizzar but brief yet overly enthusiastic speach.

The rules...

"Aoki has a unique fight with kickboxer Yuichiro Nagashima. They will alternate four rounds, with one round under MMA rules and the next round they change gloves and fight under kickboxing rules. A coin toss will determine what rules they start under and which man has a huge advantage."

Wth.

I'm hoping it starts as kickboxing, and the gay guy in the wig beats the crap out of the gay guy in the shiny pants. Either way, I don't see this going past the first round.
