Review: 2014-08-29, pretty good finish between Shinya Aoki and Kamal Shalorus but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two. The black belt in judo and Bjj Shinya Aoki entered this fight with a professional mma record of 35-6-0 (68% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.18 lightweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2012 when he faced Eddie Alvarez at Bellator 66 (=Alvarez vs Aoki 2), since then he has won five consecutive fights.
His opponent, Kamal Shalorus, has an official record of 9-3-2 (56% finishing rate) and he comes off two consecutive victories after three defeats between 2011 and 2012. Aoki vs Shalorus, main event of One Fc 19, is valid for the ONE FC lightweight title (Aoki’s first defense). Watch the video and rate this fight!
