He hasn't fought anyone in the last ten years with even a quarter of the submission ability of Aoki. I will take a screen name bet on this one.

 McKee by split decision.  It will be closer than you think.  Everyone that assumes that Mckee will get sub'd need to re-evaluate.  The guy hasn't been tapped in in over ten years.

This is one of those fights that will piss me off if it doesn't go to the ground.

To claim to be a "news" site, you should be reporting facts not spin. I know it almost never happens that way, but when it is so overt as to use a pejorative like "mouthy journeyman" is something they probably wouldn't allow in a highschool newspaper. It is news or opinion? There seems to be no standard and it is a joke. The news on fightsport was better than here.

Thank god, finally some JMMA. Can't wait to see Kikuno kick holes in Nakamura's gut.

I don't see how they bad mouthed McKee here maybe because I could care less about the guy either way.This is a dream matchup for Aoki. A guy who wants to take it to the ground. Aoki via tap.

Aoki is not boring, not even close.

Interesting fight....Mckee was brought in as fodder for the Aoki submission machine.
