shinya aoki is the second best lightweight in the world
if he beats his next two in spectacular fashion, there may be little doubt.
Aoki would beat him, IMO. He'd pull guard and then sub him. It's Penn, Aoki, and then Florian IMO.
actually, kenny is currently rank at number 4
That's their ranking. We all have our own ranking system. I got it Penn, Aoki, then Florian. Aoki already made a fool of Alvarez. His jiu-jitsu is just AMAZING. I think it's better than Penn's, honestly (but Penn is the better overall fighter, of course).
I love Aoki, but that hole in his stand up and the fact he's been knocked out more than once is what makes me question his number two status.
sherdogs rankings >>>>>>
It's all opinion. There's no perfect system to rank who's number 1. Sorry. And again, Aoki TOOLED Alvarez when they fought. He's still number 2 IMO. I think Florian would beat Alvarez in a decision or maybe a sub.
lol @ you telling me aoki is number 2 as if i disagreed with you and said he wasnt
No... I'm just sayin' Aoki destroyed Alvarez and I don't think he'd do it to that degree to Florian. Florian also has good takedown defense. I don't think Aoki would take 'em down that easily. Just my opinion tho'.
The sad thing is, I still think Sanchez would be Florian and he got DESTROYED by Penn. Nobody's beating Penn in LW.
still not too late to edit that.
still wish they'd at least kinda acknowledge that fedor exists when they call anderson the best. I can understand Dana saying it, but people like Joe Rogan and other guys that follow worldwide MMA disappoint me.
and anderson's a god to me.
lmfao i said that exact same shit when rogan said that
i was like wtf, stfu liar, fedor is the best
this is going to be like pernell whitaker vs quicksand.
and I'm betting on pernell.
awkward double bow.
like they were lookign for a contact lens.
okay, im pissing myself here.
maia is scared to death.
anderson is a fucking clown
i wanna beat the shit out of him myself just for all that fucking playing around and showboating
good luck with that.
