Aoki's fight has special rules, no rd 1 grappling?

I'm surprised I haven't seen this post already, but according to MMA junkie the Aoki fight has specials rules.

Rd 1 is a kickboxing only match, and Rd 2 is a MMA match. No round 3.

Can anyone else confirm this is the case? I hate special rules like this.

Ahh see now Aoki could be in trouble. Best pure grappler in MMA alongside Jacare, but standing he has nothing to offer. Phone Post

So are they going to put a line around the inside of the ring and have a lap counter? i mean let's face it, the only way aoki will survive round 1 is pulling a starnes .



this isn't a real fight anyway 

Crazy rules. Surprised about the Bob Sapp fight only allowing open hand slaps too. Phone Post

 Aoki is going to put his ear muffs on the entire first round against an overrated kickboxer and then grapplerape him in the second.
