    Anyways, I think we can all agree that we want to findout.
    That was fat BJ...

    But anyway, I dont think Aoki has much of a chance against BJ. Its just a horror matchup for him, BJ would keep it standing and outbox him.

    Against anyone else in the UFC though, Aoki can definately put on a submission clinic.

    Naaah, ain't gonna happen.

    Aoki is pretty much the face of Dream, I doubt that they'd let him go.

    Fedor syndrome.

    I think it's far more probable, and please think about it a sec before you
    rule it out, that one of the top lightweight UFC/US fighters makes a deal with Dream.

    Demian Maia also gave clinics and got KTFO in seconds by Nate Marquardt, so IDK.

    You're fucking insane if you think Tyson Griffin is a bulked up featherweight. He may be short, but he's one of the biggest and strongest lightweights in the UFC.

    He's a MONSTER compared to Aoki.

    Aoki's first fight had better be Sherk.

    BJ's been known to do his own thing in the past, and if he gets it in his head that he wants to fight Aoki, he may clash with the UFC to make it happen. If Aoki and BJ keep taking out legit top LW's, this could become a real issue. Of course, the UFC will never let BJ leave as Champion, so the only real possibility is for Aoki to forsake the promotions that have got him this far. That probably won't happen either, which is a shame, as it would be the most significant title unification in any wieght class of MMA. Looking at the past accomplishments of Shinya Aoki and BJ Penn, and seeing how the two have earned their places in their division, shows a much more balanced significane than a fight such as Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko. I just hope that someway, somehow, Dana Claus can put this together.
