This is going to be an interesting fight. One who moves laterally constantly picking angles vs a guy who pushes forward aggressively.

Without any favoritism, I think Gustaf might take the decision by knocking down Shogun, but not finishing em. Now if Gustaf finishes Shogun I will be helluve surprised. But I won't be surprised if Shogun finishes Gustaf.
Sometimes I hate it when I'm right. But it's in the books and the LHW title holder needs a true challenge. One with excellent movement and strong striking. If Gustaf doesn't take it, there can ONLY BE ONE!

Enter "The Spider."

I agree. JBJ should not be overly concerned with Gus.

The way Shogun throws punches has more to do with Gus not getting marked up than him fighting safe which he really didn't in the first two rounds.

Yeah Gus did not fight safe... he threw down with Shogun and while landing more strikes, took some massive shots for his trouble. I think he lost the first round, I scored it 29-28 Gustaf.

Rashad is a bad matchup for Gus imo. He would not be able to stop Rashad's takedowns.

Gustafsson is the one who is underrated, not Rashad. Gus striking is just way too good for Rashad to handle, and Rashad won't take him down very easily. Gus is just way stronger and bigger than Rashad, I've heard people who have sparred with both GSP, Jones and Gus and they say Gus is the strongest by far, and a better than fighter than any of them.
