    Pretty much this:

    The conventional wisdom in MMA right now is that grapplers like Aoki need to develop their striking in order to make that next big jump. But Aoki's grappling and his focus on it is what makes him so dangerous and to focus so much time and energy on become mediocre at striking takes away from that. Aoki's attempted standing elbow showed that he was comfortable enough on the feet to get cute, but not experienced enough to safely execute the techniques. I believe a saying a coach of mine best sums up what happened with Aoki's striking Friday night, "he knew just enough to get his ass kicked".
