Shinya Aoki Teases Crossover Into Featherweight

The DREAM and ONE FC lightweight champion Shinya Aoki has clearly found success, but is open to shredding the pounds for featherweight.

“My coach told me that I can lose weight, and I’m interested to see my body in better shape at featherweight,” said Aoki to TATAME.

He took DREAM’s belt back in 2009 and has defended it several times. In April, he beat Kotetsu Boku for ONE FC gold. The 10 year pro holds a 33-6 record.

Aoki usually competes out of the Asian end of the world. In one of his few appears inside the United States, Aoki was quickly disposed of by Eddie Alvarez last year.
