Shinya Aoki has the submission department under wraps, but with some new Muay Thai techniques in his back pocket, Aoki's arsenal just got a huge boost. Slated to face known Muay Thai killer Rob McCullough at Dream 17 on September 24, Shinya Aoki has been polishing his stand-up game. This Aoki vs. McCullough preview video summarizes Aoki's latest training at Evolve MMA in Singapore. What better place to brush up on your Thai fighting than in the home of Muay Thai -- Thailand?!
An intelligent Aoki will respect the heavy striking of 'Razor' Rob, and opt for a ground fight, but his stand-up training could help neutralize McCullough's punches and kicks.
This fight has potential "Fight of the Year" written all over it!
