What dangerous beasts? Shogun is the one pretending to be a top 5 fighter. He doesn't deserve his ranking and this just shows why.

Also, maybe one day you'll grow some mental matter and understand the fight business. Fighters aren't awarded "emeritus" rankings, based on what they did years ago, especially not 3-3 fighters like Fraudgun.


Fraudgun does the same thing bums liek Griffin and Rampage do, they take fights against elite fighters and get smashed and then take the easiest possible fight to get back into "contention" meanwhile holding the division hostage.

Basically the complete opposite of WW and the fighters there that actually have some balls.


Also lol at mentioning a title fight...Shogun would've been stripped and released had he avoided Jones....even he knew better. He also would've lost a **** ton of money because he likely would've been in a breach of contract. He probably tried to avoid Jones too.

Oh, definitely. It's not like a man who sets foot into a cage and subjects himself to serious physical harm could possibly have balls. A total coward.

Would you like to a little more?

He's not subjecting himself to physical harm, that's why he wet his diapers when asked to fight Teixeira.

Brandon Vera and Forrest Griffin are two bums Fraudgun knows he can beat without taking major damage.

Not surprising considering this is the same guy who tapped to strikes.

Not subjecting himself to physical harm? Did the Jon Jones and Dan Henderson fights not happen? Did he tap to strikes or quit on the stool against Dan?

Your 'points' =

He had a loss to Griffin prior to defeating him...

Of course they happened, Fraudgun is a prizefighter, however the true measure of a fighter is not how he fights when he has everything to gain but when he has everything to lose.

Fraudgun failed and is a coward the same level of his PRIDE buddy Mr.Emelianenko.

He was the champ, if he refused to fight a contender he prolly would have been striped

Ah, but there's the rub. Jones was simply a replacement for an injured Rashad Evans. You don't think that Rua was approached about the idea of fighting Jones before it was announced on PPV? As for this 'champions must fight' malarkey, Anderson Silva has been staving off a rematch with Chael Sonnen for going on a year now. I'm aware that the fight is finally going to happen, but don't tell me champs have no pull.

Even if we remove that part of the equation, we can't ignore the fight with Dan Henderson. Shogun got absolutely stomped towards the beginning, didn't quit, gas, or tap to strikes, and rallied back to finish on top. So all of this talk of cowardice is bollocks. Granted, the bulk of that talk is coming from a keyboard warrior/absolute nobody who's likely never set foot in a gym, let alone a steel cage.

Sitting behind the safety of your keyboard and calling a man who bleeds for a living a coward. It's barely worth acknowledging.

Anderson Silva was ducking both Sonnen and Henderson, while at the same time talk his way into a fight with Bisping (who would be his easiest title defense to date). Yet Shogun is getting crapped on for not wanting to fight someone who is a nobody. Shogun gains nothing but a paycheck from putting a beating on Glover. And while he doesn't gain much from Vera either, at least people know who Vera is, considering hes been in there with other familiar faces such as Mir, Sylvia, Jardine, and Couture. His fights have been played on UFC Unleashed quite a few times and I believe hes been feature on ultimate KOs once. Glover? Most had never even seen him until two weeks ago. Vera is the worthwhile fight.

Attero Dominatus.

Got to love people.

Anderson choked 1 out in the 2nd round. He choked the other out in the 5th. He is rematching the guy he choked out in the 5th in a month...

yet he is ducking them.

Just like Sonnen said he was ducking Okami huh? How'd that end up?

Anderson could fight Hendo 5 times and Sonnen 10 times and idiots would still say he is "ducking" them.

Can't please everyone I guess.
