Fedor Emelianenko submits Shinya Aoki in Japanese exhibition match

Size doesn’t always overcome technique, but it sure helps.

In the latest only-in-Japan booking, fight officials pitted heavyweight star Fedor Emelianenko vs. lightweight stand-out Shinya Aoki in an “exhibition sparring match” that took place today.

The bout, which resembled more of a grappling session, ended when Aoki tapped out to his much-larger opponent.

The exhibition was part of Wednesday’s Deep/M-1 Challenge event at the Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan.

(However, M-1 will make the fight available online for free beginning May 4.)
