    In what universe did I say Fitch is terrible? Re-read my post, then your post, then reflect.

    I agree with you that Nakashima is very composed with significant endurance and grit. He probably should be around -200 here.

    The reality is Aoki has looked fantastic since losing to Askren.

    I mean, your original post was that Nakashima looked "terrible" in ONE and then that he was a "worse version of Fitch", hence my reply.

    I agree Aoki looked very good since losing to Askren but at the same time I would have picked Nako to dominate every opponent Aoki beat since then and also give Askren a much, much tougher test

    To be fair though, Aoki completely dominated Christian Lee in the first round and nearly finished him with an armbar. Lee's escape was a miracle. You can't suggest Nako would "run through" Lee.

    It's virtually impossible for anyone to look worse against Askren than Aoki did.

    He got the better of Okami and Abbasov until the knee strike in the feet. Held his own standing with very dangerous strikers as Santos or Magomedaliev. Trains with Giorgio Petrosyan and shows pretty composed southpaw stance in the feet

    No, it's not pure wrestling, it's a very well put toguether mma game. I agree he is pretty boring, but let's give credit where it's due

    Called it. Aoki is still a very dangerous fighter, i think more dangerous than a few years ago. Still improving.

    Hopefully since it was one round, TNT can show it in entirety on the TV.

    Too bad Aoki spent 97% of his career fighting in Japan wasting his talent on shit competition.
