I wouldn't mind seeing Machida/Bader and Davis/Shogun but I'd be down for the final Shogun/Machida, I'm pretty confident Machida would beat him again especially after Shogun's rough 2011.
Also, I'm still not sure why the judges didn't give Shogun and Hendo 10-8 rounds in that fight.
1) Ya, his dad. If my dad just so me get violently knocked out in a mma bout, I'm sure he'd want me to hang it up too. He's still got the skill set and the mindset if you ask me.
2) Those are some match-ups I'd def be excited to see as well.
3)I thought the round should have been 10-8 as well for Shogun and I scored the fight a draw.
Also I find it interesting that the dummies at the commission have "Shogun Rua" as his name instead of Mauricio on the scorecards. Do they actually think his name is Shogun?
Wouldn't surprise me if they did.
