Apparently it’s in the works. Notable quote:
Aoki has got to have significantly better stand-up and he’s also the type of fighter to look at this fight as an opportunity to redeem himself. In many respects, this would be a real test for Marcelo since not only is Aoki likely the superior striker, but also because Aoki has more experience grappling in MMA situations. Learning how to apply a submission from the guard while an opponent is swinging at you requires poise, toughness, and different technical applications than pure sport BJJ.
Still, though, this would be an amazing fight: (arguably) the best grappler in the world versus (arguably) the best MMA grappler in the game. Fireworks, my friends. Fireworks.
