There were approximately 1,000 spectators on hand at Differ Ariake to witness the exhibition match which was said to resemble a training session one might see inside a fight gym. Aoki traded in his usual attire of colorful spats for shorts and a gi and Fedor sported a gi with long pants.

Reports are saying some of the highlights occurred when Fedor threw Aoki with several Sambo moves, Aoki attempted a flying arm-bar, and Fedor finally submitted the lightweight champion with an Achilles lock at the three-minute mark of the five-minute bout. The video of the session will air free of charge on a video-on-demand basis starting on Monday, May 4 at www.M-1Global.com and www.Mixfight.ru.
