Shinya Aoki And Strikeforce Still Talking

Shinya Aoki

MMA Weekly has the latest on the Shinya Aoki-Strikeforce courtship.

Scott Coker on Monday told that “dialogue was continuing” with Aoki’s camp and follow-up meetings were planned during a trip to Japan for Dynamite! Dream vs. Sengoku on New Year’s Eve.

“I do believe Aoki will probably be here fighting for Strikeforce in March sometime,” he said.

Of course, Aoki’s pants are always a hot topic when talking about the long-legged submission wizard. If he fights in the US, he can’t wear his pants. So what is Aoki to do? Maybe he should talk to George Sotiropolous, ya know the same guy who punted his nuts like a football back in ’06. He kinda owes him one.
