    Shinya Aoki Signs With One FC

    Post by Dist205 on Wed Jun 27, 2012 1:51 pm


    Perennial top lightweight Shinya Aoki has joined the ranks of the ONE FC lightweight division. The Japanese submission specialist, who recently came up short in a rematch to former Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez in a rematch of their 2008 DREAM bout, is slated to headline the the promotion’s August 31 event, which is slated to be held in the Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines.

    The former DREAM Lightweight champion has faced a who’s who of competition in his lengthy career, earning wins over the likes of Eddie Alvarez, Joachim Hansen, Tatsuya Kawajiri, “JZ” Cavalcante, and many others. While some disappointing performances stateside have done little to boost the reputation of the long-time top lightweight, his resume speaks for itself.

    Aoki is now primed to lead ONE FC’s lightweight class for the foreseeable future, standing as a favorite to rule over the division with his virtuoso grappling abilities.
