Shinya Aoki Apologizes For Behavior At Dynamite!! 2009…Sort Of

Shinya Aoki Breaks Mizuto Hirota's Arm [Dynamite 2009]

“After my fight, I was excited, and so I did something rude that I should apologize for. But that showed just how excited I was over that fight…When I had his arm behind his back, I could feel it popping. I thought, ‘Well, this guy’s pride just won’t let him tap, will it?’ So without hesitation, I broke it. I heard it break, and I thought, ‘Ah, there, I just broke it.’ I was stopped afterward, but even if I hadn’t been, continuing to break it more would have been fine by me…Dream got a solid win [with my victory over Hirota], so that was good, but we finished off Sengoku. Although Sengoku was already finished from the very beginning. When Sasahara tells me to go and do something, I do it, and that’s how I live my life. If Sasahara tells me to go to Strikeforce and take them out or ‘Go and kill that guy,’ I’m going to do it. Even if he tells me to go take out Tanigawa, I’d do that too.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m not getting that warm fuzzy feeling from Aoki that’s he truly regretful for his actions which one prominent MMA journalist described as the “behavior of a crank toddler.” His message to Tatsuya Kawajiri didn’t help either.

“I received a challenge from [Kawajiri], and so without telling him to shut the f— up, I accept the challenge and look forward to our fight,” said the colorful grappler, who added that he would like to have seven to 10 fights in 2010.

Gee, how nice of him. I wonder what Scott Coker thinks about all of this.
