yeah i don't really understand shogun's logic....at least w/ the amount of muscle he has now, he's a small LHW...going to MW makes more sense

I'm wondering just what in the hell Ninja was thinking when he faced freakin' Sergei Kharitonov.

Maybe if he looses to Chuck and/or Henderson doesn't beat Silva he will drop?

Rogan has also stated numerous times that the Japanese fans see MMA as a spectacle just as much as a sport. Extravagant ring entrances and entertaining the crowd, to Japanese fans, is just as important as the fights themselves. They did create whacky fights (yes, whacky) because as Wise said on page 1 of this thread, the Japanese eat that shit up.

Also, I don't see why you'd create a thread if your plan was to stop replying once someone had a difference of opinion.

It's because Sergei is incredibly stupid. He would've won that fight had he not been a complete moron.

You can't compare a fight like Wanderlei Silva vs. Mirko Filipovic (Middleweight vs. Heavyweight) with some crazy Lightweight vs. Super Heavyweight fights that they did.
