If you didn’t ruin your sleep cycle last week by staying up all night watching HDNet, then the first thing you probably saw was the headlines. Yes, it is true; Shinya Aoki is the new bad boy in MMA. He broke Mizuto Hirota’s arm and then flicked him and the crowd off.
The Lesnaresque display was only missing him saying “I’m gonna drink a Sapporo, because Kirin Ichiban doesn’t pay me nothing!” (Full Disclosure: I stole this not clever joke from a Cage Potato post on the UG. “Stole” is really too strong of a word. I’m merely mocking their brand of humor. “Humor” is really too strong of a word…)
People are now astonished with his behavior. The MMA public now has a reason to hate the scrawny and frail-looking guy. However, distain directed towards Aoki really has little to do with his lack of sportsmanship.
