    Please no more dropping down Aoki. 155 is your weight class.

    I agree. Aoki looked like a toothpick at 145. 155 is definitely his home. 140 just seems ridiculous.

    Bad form. If you're going to call someone out at a higher weight class, don't preface it with a stipulation that it will only be on your terms. Otherwise, it's like inviting yourself to a party that no one asked you to come to.

    "I wouldn’t fight him at 145 pounds. At 140, I would take it right away."

    C'mon Bibiano.

    I'd definitely pick Bibi against a dead Aoki.

    A_OK_I has far too big feet to cut to 140.

    Looks like another fighter doesn't understand how superfights are supposed to work. Aoki already says 145 is too much of a drain for him, no way he goes to 140

    Aoki responded by calling out Askren but only at 160.
