Shinya Aoki vs Yuki Yamamoto Added to Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014

Another high profile fight has been added to IGF Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2014 fight card on New Year’s Eve.  Top Japanese MMA star, Shinya Aoki (36-6) is slated to fight Paraestra Chiba’s Yuki Yamamoto (6-6-3).  In a striker versus grappler match-up, Shinya Aoki may test his striking skills with his continued development with Evolve MMA, but taking the fight to the ground against the striker Yamamoto would be an easier pathway to victory.  Shinya Aoki is one of the best grapplers in all of MMA, with finishing ability from any position.  Aoki is the holder of 24 submissions wins, including five submission wins in his past six fights.  Yuki Yamamoto started his career with ZST and moved on to GRACHAN, where he had the biggest win over his career against TAISHO.  Finishing all six of his wins, five by knockout (one injury), although Yamamoto is coming off of a loss at IGF 2.
