Wow, what a long strange trip its been. (Thanks Grateful Dead) The bout that was supposedly finalized just 48 hours ago is again off as fighter Anthony McKee is unable to compete. One thing we have learned is that it is not a visa issue as many are reporting, but another issue that is unknown at this time.
As of right now, the only shot of seeing Aoki fight is against an Asian opponent according to sources. With only two weeks to spare, there is simply not enough time left for a lightweight to make the journey to Japan.
