    As boring as McKee is, I like this match-up for Aoki. There aren’t many awesome opponents for him outside the UFC.

    According to Fight Matrix, McKee is the second highest ranked Lightweight outside of the “Big 3” after Jadamba Narantungalag and is actually 7 spots higher than Aoki… I don’t agree with it but gives you an idea of where they’re at!

    No Showtime fighting in the k1 tournament? The way he talks, you would think he is the favorite to win and is one of the world’s best…he’s just had some bad luck getting ko’ed by some no-name toughman
