Gustaf is a monster and anyone who downplays the Silva fight is a fool, he tooled Thiago Silva. He will stand with Shogun. Shogun is crafty and always lands something but will not hesitate in taking the fight to the ground. Gun to my head I pick Gustaf, his 'girlish' movement is something that most guys in the division cannot handle, and I guarantee he hits as hard or harder than Hendo... but Shogun is one of the few who will not be fazed by this and has the skills to make it his fight.
Seriously doubt that. I don't think Gus has half the power Hendo has. Fedor would make Gus his bitch.
