Has this thread been left here for ironic purposes?

He's 36-6 fighting better competition than anybody outside the UFC top 10. He is better than at least 50 UFC LWs. Is this serious?

Alvarez
Kawajiri
Hansen
Hansen
Uno
Riberio
Gsot
Kitoaka
Clementi
McKee
Aurelio
Hirota
Shalarus
McCullough
GZ
Beerbohm

I'm not predicting the same exact results, but unless the matchmaker does Aoki a significant favor, he will meet the similar fate.

8 years ago, Aoki was really good at opening up opponents' defense by quick surprising attacks like flying armbar. Those were the weapons that were unique to him and something Nakamura didn't have. Now he seems to have forgotten about "purple belt spirit" and fight like a boring black belt Jiujitsu guy like Daniel Moraes

You can easily check this yourself. Try to list top 5 lw's for 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005.

You will not be able to make any list without Hansen, Kawajiri, Shaolin
