I'll tell you why, first Chute Boxe, it shortens guys careers or at least used to. Made them insane fighters but Wand and Shogun both are old beyond their years. Second, what is it four knee surgeries now? One knee surgery is okay, but that many before 30 is tough.
I truly believe had Shoguns knees stayed healthy he would have come over and picked up where he left off in Pride and just crushed everyone, but they didn't so, if Shogun makes it to 35 I'll be shocked.
But I love everyone comparing Jones and Shogun it's not even a comparison. At 23 Jones has beaten a few gatekeepers and a unproven highly touted prospect.
This is what Shogun was doing at 23.
That's the man that beat Liddel twice in Chuck's prime....
