There are lots of fighters with this kind of attitude, and in the end of the day, they have to go up in the cage in a war anyway.

Shogun is a gent himself and I must root for him, though, because I am a big fan. May the best fighter win, anyway.

You know what, you're absolutely right. it was foolish of me not to hold Shoguns sub of Randleman to a high degree, i mean he and Hammerhouse have always been known for their vast knowledge of the art of Jui-Jitsu.

I think it's more just the fact that you don't understand how Shogun uses his BJJ (like his GREAT omoplata, which he used loads of times in PRIDE) to set up strikes, sweep, control his opponent, etc...

Yeah well put Shogun in there with Prado, Stann and Boetsch, and Shogun would sub all of them too.

Put Davis in there with Machida, Henderson and Jones and he'd be too busy getting KO'd in the first round to sub anyone.

It's pretty crazy, Shogun is 6-4 in his last 10 with 6 KO wins, and 2 decision losses both of which were controversial.

His KOs come over the likes of Overeem, Liddel and Machida...

And he avenged 2 of the 4 losses with brutal KOs.

And people say he's washed up.

He also won the UFC LHW title during that run.

Excited to see these two gentlemen go to war. I like both of them and I think it will be an exciting fight.

I'm really shocked that Shogun is such an underdog. I don't think it will be an easy fight by any means, but I think Shogun has the toolsto pull it off. Gustaf is a great prospect and definitely a future contender, but I simply think that Shogun's striking, chin, and experience will be the deciding factors here.

Shogun takes a competitive decision.
