Thumbs up MMA Containment Thread v.2


Previous thread:

With all the fans, fanbois and haters going back and forth, and 3 or 4 random UFC 100 threads, I thought this might be a good Idea.

Everything from news and rumors, who will be fighting on the UFC #XXX card and of course, old sweaty dudes just lying on top of each other to get their jollies.

Come here and get your fill.

I will start...

Aoki vs. Fedor? More likely than you think...

Pictures here -

While it was nothing more than a sparring exhibition in which no score was kept, the pairing of WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko vs. WAMMA lightweight champion Shinya Aoki was able to invoke an outpouring of applause and cheering from a normally reserved Japanese crowd.

Advertised locally as a \"special super exhibition,\" the encounter held between M-1 Challenge fights on Wednesday night in Tokyo featuring the two undisputed world champions resembled a training session that you might see inside of a fight gym. The only difference was that nearly 1,000 spectators were on hand at Differ Ariake to watch the two square off while donning Gis.

Fedor utilized his strength advantage to send Aoki soaring with several Sambo throws. At one point, Aoki played to the crowd and removed his Gi in jest and attempted a flying armbar on Fedor. With both fighters pressing each other well less than 100 percent, the two smiled for much of the session and embraced after the final bell had sounded.

The entire Fedor vs. Aoki session will premiere in its entirety on Monday, May 4 at both and on a video-on-demand basis.

The video of the session will air free of charge on a video-on-demand basis starting on Monday, May 4 at and Despite erroneous speculation, the fight video will be available free of charge.
