Shinya Aoki scored a last second submission to earn his berth in the gold medal match, narrowly beating German Dennis Siver in a great semi-final contest. Aoki will face Frankie Edgar who crushed Canadian Mark Bocek.
Gold Medal Match:
1. Frankie Edgar vs. 2. Shinya Aoki
My Take: I think Frankie Edgar is an amazing fighter. But at some point this is hitting the mat. And when it does, Aoki is going to twist him like a pretzel for the upset.
Bronze Medal Match:
3. Dennis Siver vs. 5. Mark Bocek
My Take: Two rising UFC stars. I think fans are wildly overestimating Siver's skills based on a once in a lifetime bout with G-Sot. Bocek will submit him to bring some much needed glory to Canada, his home and native land.
