With a dominating performance against Bart Palaszewski at UFC 144, Hatsu Hioki added fuel to the debate as to when the Japanese star should receive a title shot.
Widely regarded as the second-best featherweight in the world, Hioki could very well be next in line for champion Jose Aldo.
That is the exact reason the UFC brought Hioki in—to challenge for Aldo's title. Does Hikoi have the skills to take the title to Japan? Or would Aldo keep the belt in Brazil?
