The Fight That Should Have Already Happened! Aoki Vs. Alvarez On NYE?!

From Sherdog.com:

Eddie Alvarez and Shinya Aoki, two of the world’s top four lightweights, have verbally agreed to fight one another at K-1 “Premium 2008 Dynamite” on Dec. 31 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. Monte Cox, who manages Alvarez, confirmed the news to Sherdog.com on Monday.

I have actually also read about this possible fight on some other places. Don’t be surprised to see the Welterweight title fight that was close to happen, Mirko vs. one of two Koreans, and the K-1 ruler for the past few years vs. the brother of the best MMA fighter on this card.

    hmmm, who are you insinuating will fight Aleks? maybe Schilt? that would be nice

    Aoki vs Alvarez would be dope
    Mach vs Nick Diaz for the Dream WW title is also nice
    what surprised me, is that i thought Kawajiri was gonna fight Uno. now Kawajiri is gonna get knocked out, wtf was he thinking.
    Mirko vs 1 of 2 koreans? hmmmmmmmm, im guessing Akiyama or HMC? im guessing Akiyama because before Mirko fought Overeem i read a rumor FEG wanted Akiayama to go up to HW to fight Mirko and possibly contend for a future HW belt or something like that.
    but id rather see Mirko vs HMC and Sexyama vs Jacare

    Yes, Schilt. About the Kawajiri thing, I don’t know, maybe he wanted it, maybe Uno is injured (there hasn’t been much talk about him+dynamite), maybe they are saving it for DREAM.

    I wouldn’t say Kawajiri is gonna get KO’d, he can win the fight with his power. Takeda isn’t as good as a few years ago and when a fighter does something for the first time, they often do above expectations, but after that it starts going downhill if they don’t improve dramatically.

    thanks for the feeback. what about Mirko, who were the 2 Koreans you think might fight him?

    a N.O.B section with your Dynamite predictions would be sweet =)

    They are as you guessed. These aren’t exactly just predictions of mine, they are a little more than that. Don’t be surprised if they happen and don’t be surprised if they don’t happen.

    btw, a source told me Akiyama announced his opponent on his blog on his site, but i cant find his official site

    plus i heard another rumor that Aoki is fighting Ishida on NYE, but dont quote me on that it seems bogus
