    Let's not forget that Aoki has submitted the very large Eddie Alvarez absolutely manhandled former 170 standout Jason Black. Black, in his heyday, was a dominant positioning GnPer who bullied his opponents.

Aoki is not good at getting hit and taking it. I would be interested in seeing Aoki fight Nate Diaz before he could talk about being in the top 3 in the UFC.
    I meant big boys in terms of the better 155s, not the literal big boys.

    Same Jason Black that was manhandled by Tavarez?

    Nope, the Jason Black that was essentially undefeated at the time Aoki worked him over so badly. He was 22-1-1 with the one loss coming via a freak injury versus Shonie Carter. Again, I'm just pointing out that he has more than held his own versus a couple of much bigger, much stronger, bullying opponents.

    I finally watched it - must have been like 4 seconds left when Hansen tapped. Bad idea to go for that knee as time was running out and his arm was stuck.

    I think Hansen was winning at that point, but no doubt the judges would have given it to Aoki. Dream is too bias for the homecrowd favorites for my taste (worse than pride)

    It is the same Jason Black that got tooled by Tavarez then. Black has not impressed me.

    Calvacante is not the kind of buzzsaw Sherk and Griffen are. Both of those guys also possess good cardio and good submission defense on top of that.

    I think aoki could definitely beat griffin. Griffin is solid and does have very good cardio but he has also never faced anyone as dangerous as aoki on the ground. Even if he did not get submitted i think he would be on the defensive the whole time.
