Ouch so sad. Going with the typo comeback.

Physically i do believe Shogun is a far cry from Pride Shogun. Skill wise i think Pride Shogun would have gotten knocked out pretty often in the UFC.

If 2005 shogun was fighting in the UFC now. I dont see it fairing well for him. His rushing in style would have gotten him Ko'd pretty fast imho.

I just think the skill level has evolved way too much for 2005 Shogun to stand a chance.

BUT

If we had a 2005 health Shogun with todays Skills Shogun. That would be a different story.

Did not mean to hurt your feelings, but keep grammar/spelling corrections coming. They'll be welcome.

I don't I think it will make him a duller fighter like GSP Evans and Bisping after their big loses. It will make him focus on winning decisions and using he reach for points and not finishes.

As for the topic, Shogun was fortunate to fight in Pride which helped his particular skill set. As for him getting "knocked out" yeahbutno....he'd get out-wrestled and decision-ed. I don't believe he would ever be a champion but he would likely be a perennial fixture in the top ten if only because of his youth versus the age of UFC LHW's.
