I found this @ MMAFighting's Japan section.
"It seems to me that Mikey (Yoshihiro Akiyama) is making fun of our event," Aoki said Sunday on the "Fighting Talk of the Treasure House" radio show. "His demand is nothing but self-centered. I won't fight anybody except Mikey on NYE. I'll defeat him without gaining any weight. If he doesn't take this offer, I will consider that he is afraid of fighting me, and runs away."
And from the WTF?! section...
DREAM producer Keiichi Sasahara is working to comply with Aoki's request.
"We were thinking about Badr Hari and Choi Hong Man as Aoki's opponent, but now we are only negotiating with Akiyama."
Badr Hari or Hong-Man Choi!?!?!?!?!? Does FEG not like Aoki, are they trying to get him killed? I've added an image for what I would assume would be the size difference...
