Oh, the tangled web weaved around Shinya Aoki vs JZ Calvan. The DREAM lightweight tournament is already kinda strange, with one fighter getting a free pass into the second round for no apparent reason other than disorganized bookings. Now it seems like there might be a second berth that needs filling, because Shinya Aoki is saying he’s not interested in fighting at DREAM.3 if he beats JZ:
- Are you thinking about fighting on May 11 in DREAM 3?
I win on Apr 29, but not fight on May 11. That’s their business and not me. I’m not well-considered person to agree with fighting on May 11. I’m not thinking about a fight after Apr 29. I may fight if I had an easy fight on Apr 29.
– Don’t you want a belt?
Not interested in. My next fight has more meaning than a belt.
Hmm, I wonder why so many fans accuse Aoki of wussing out of fights with injuries? I was kinda going for Shinya simply because I dig his tights, but now I’d rather have JZ win so the tournament isn’t potentially screwed up any more than it has to be.
