Aoki is an emotional guy, but managed a smile when a fan asked if he could wipe his sweat with his towel. Aoki will be back, he was beaten in the final, but he has had an impressive tournament!

Cool pictures, but Eddie Alvarez isn't unbeaten.

He lost to Nick Thompson in Bodog Fight.

Yeah, you're right.
