Aoki to Fight at Welterweight

Everyone's favorite hot pants wearing Lightweight has decided to jump up a weight class and compete in DREAM's Welterweight Grand Prix, which begins on April 5. There are two reasons this is intriguing. First, Aoki weighs like 86 lbs. I see no way he tries to bulk up to 170 lbs for the tournament. This makes for the always entertaining "small guy fights a big guy". The Japanese eat that up. Second, didn't WAMMA justify giving the title to the winner of Aoki/Alvarez because BJ Penn was taking a Welterweight fight against Georges St-Pierre? Do you think they'll strip Aoki of the title?

Of course they won't because they're self-serving hypocrites.

Talking about WAMMA keeps them relevant. Maybe if we ignore them they'll go away.
