That beating JDS put on him didn't do him any favors either.

That's a bummer for sure. He seemed like a good guy and was exciting to watch. Never really had a lengthy run at the top. People took notice of him when he demolished Mir and then lost to Brock, and then he only had one fight after (and it was an afterthought since he was a replacement). Too bad.

You got me, it sailed right over my head, came back around, buzzed the tower and flew over it again. So, I still don't get it or what the term "look at it go" means. Please help me.

It means look(with your eyes) at that joke fly right on by. Going, going, gone. Put it on the board.....YES!

All the best.

I woulda liked to have seen him in the game much earlier & training full time. And his fight against Brock was a great win. (yes, I know, but it was a robbery)

I agree on all of it. Unfortunately, the steroid implications are part of his legacy.

Haha, my name is also Shane and I get called Shawn all the time, it seems to be an easy mistake to make.

Bummed for this but I guess there's no point carrying on fighting if you don't feel you can give it your all. Whatever @ the steroid allegations, I'm sure if we all knew the truth we'd look at a lot of our favorite fighters differently. Hope he's happy.
