The middle finger in Japan?

Does flipping the bird mean the same thing in Japan as it does in North America? Is Aoki actually as batshit insane as he seems here or am I missing something?

Ha, nice

My Korean exchange students told me there is another hand guester in Korea (making a fist with your thumb between your index and middle finger) like the middle finger but that people use the bird as well. I am pretty sure its the same almost everywhere.

I guess I just had a hard time believing somebody could be that wildly disrespectful after breaking a guys arm in front of thousands of fans

Really?

In Russia there's the same kind of gesture which means dick.

Nah Aoki just tried to pull a Lesnar and did it better I mean serisouly that "apology" didnt come off so well IMP maybe it got lost in translation. Either way people are talking about Japanese MMA more
