Do you think shogun can ko sonnen?

Shoguns my 2nd favorite fighter of all time, im worried with this fight due to shogun's bad gassing due to what i imagine mostly due to his messed up knees. standing i think shogun could finish sonnen especially since he's perfecting his hands with freddie roach. im worried he might lose this one but subs are always a option too, is this fight 3 or 5 rounds.

Im sure he could if he lands something. I think Shogun is generally a little slower paced fighter though and that along with his cardio may cause problems for him. I would assume Chael will try and keep constant pressure on him and mix up some strikes with take downs. I think Chael will take this with a 3rd or 5 rd desicion unfortunately. I also tend to think Shogun is a bit overrated. I think hes definitely on the downside of his career.

P.S. His GF/Wife is hot id poke on that for a minute.

I think it's rather, because hitting the mitts and heavy bag is just much more fun than training cardio.

This fight will look just like Sonnen vs Marquardt.

I honestly can't imagine how Sonnen can avoid getting punched in the head if Shogun has 15 minutes to do so.

Doubt it, his takedown defense is bad and his all around game has been terrible ever since the second Machida fight. From what I've gathered Shogun after the third surgery couldn't even finish training anymore so he would only go like 70 percent in training and coast just to be able to fight.

Can he? Yes. Will he? Unfortunately, probably not.
