Twenty-one submissions in 32 victories. These are the numbers that accredit Japanese fighter Shinya Aoki as one of the most dangerous finishers of the current MMA scene.
He is 29 years old, already has three belts on his record, and showed his refined technique to win the ONE FC, over the feared Kotetsu “No Face” Boku, taking the lightweight belt.
At the event, ONE FC 8, Shinya showed great Jiu-Jitsu skills to neutralize Boku on the ground, and step by step, worked his way to his opponent’s neck, where he submitted with a rear naked choke at 2:02 of the second round.
In the video below you can see how he manages to combine attacks to create new positions. Also notice how he builds a trap to adjust the choke he used against Kotetsu.
