Mach is awesome
thing is i used to like aoki. then he faked his way to a nc, balled after getting his ass beat, and now disgraces a c-level fighter after ripping his arm out of socket. plus the bias he gets from refs (e.g. ref feeding him hansen's leg to get takedown) doesn't help at all. although his loyal fans won't admit it the guy's starting to embody everything wrong with mma
hirota is not a c-level fighter. Top 10 at LW
I'm not an Aoki lover but the guy he beat was not C level, even with the lower level we see in Japan.
EVILYOSHIDA - hirota is not a c-level fighter. Top 10 at LW
he is maybe b- but that is with a generous grading scale imo. no offense but he is nowhere near a top contender, and though he may complete in a major org he will never win a belt; to me that is not an a or b-level fighter.
dude the man beat kitaoka, who beat a ton of fighters... he's really damn good. Kitaoka beat GOMI and IMO gomi is still hovering around 10 as well. Those UFC's dont deserve to be on the ranking.. cuz it's all a farce. the LW lineage starts in japan with shooto ever since UFC dissolved their LW division.
the new LW div in UFC = untested besides PENN who got his claim to fame at LW by beating GOMI and UNO, 2 japanese fighters. those are his biggest wins to this day at LW.
This is a perfect pic of what happens when you can attack a downed opponent with leg work.
Yep and why knees on the ground help top game specialists like wrestlers just as much as they help sprawl and brawlers.
^ knees are a big asset from sidemount and also for head and arm position (that wrestlers can get caught in when shooting but that is also a bread and butter hold in wrestling and imo wrestlers could also drag guys down with it from standing and knee).
Sakurai is better at kneeing than most though
Hirota was definitely top 10, but that said, Aoki has no budo.
Brian Rule - thing is i used to like aoki. then he faked his way to a nc, balled after getting his ass beat, and now disgraces a c-level fighter after ripping his arm out of socket.LOL, exposed.
Hirota just KO'd Ishida and Kitaoka, both of whom were top 10 at the time. Hirota was also just ranked the #10 LW in the world by the Independent MMA rankings.
Brian Rule - he faked his way to a nc...and now disgraces a c-level fighter
that wasn't fake. he had a concussion.
and, as stated a few times on this thread, the guy is not c-level...he beat two highly ranked lw's
"that wasn't fake. he had a concussion."
He was never elbowed in the head to sustain a concussion
He got elbowed in the upper back and complained about going numb (aka a stinger)
OP has a seriously sandy vagina
