Shinya Aoki Talks the UFC, Favourite Fighters and More

Promoted to the Front Page by Kid Nate.

In September 2010 I visited Japan. There, I met Dan Herbertson and Dean Marchand. Together we visited some of our favourite MMA stars to talk with them and shoot video.

This is Shinya Aoki, Dream lightweight champion.

We spoke of a lot of things, some of which are no longer relevant due to the time that has passed since the interview. Aoki himself was also a little hesitant, as he is known to be with a lot of western media. However, once the interview was 'over', he seemed to really loosen up and we had a good discussion about Japanese and American MMA, how much he loves the UFC, who is favourite fighters are and his opinion on 'wrestle-boxers'.

I hope Western fans will enjoy seeing another side of Aoki. Once we began talking about MMA, it was clear that he was very passionate and knowledgeable on the subject.
