normally I would say that the less-pervasive weight cutting overseas allows a guy like Uno to still compete at this age - i.e. in UFC he would not only be facing hyper-athletic, well-rounded younger guys, but would also be dealing with guys cutting a ton of weight vs. the average fighter in Japan.

but Aoki just tapped 23yr old team alpha male Romero, who doesn't fit into the above, so...who knows.

I still don't think Uno would go very far in today's UFC, but I wouldn't mind seeing him get one last shot IF it is against a reasonable level of competition (someone in the top 15, perhaps, and then see what happens).
it was actually coal uno, not shinya aoki, who submitted daniel romero from team alpha male, with an inverted triangle choke, no less!
