Hello Japan Fail
Check the vid below for this epic fail.
Shinya Aoki defeats David Gardner in a Dream 7 Welterweight match. Aoki has Gardner in a back mount but strangely Gardner raises his hand to wave to the crowd yelling “Hello Japan”. At that moment Aoki wraps round the rear naked choke for a submission victory.
With the ensuing result it would have been more appropriate to yell “Goodnight Japan!”.
I like Aoki’s post-match interview: “I think David was waving his hand to the audience, saying ‘Hello Japan’ during the fight,” speculated Aoki. “Maybe he thinks he’s on vacation? But I’m here to get the job done, so I choked him and finished him. Hello Japan!”
