Shogun has been mostly irrelevant at LHW for a long time now and he is definitely not a top fighter at 205 anymore. Shogun is middle of the pack just like most of the LHW division.

Shogun is on the way out (hell he's halfway out the door!) and Sonnen is back!

Watched the fight second time over today, was just as satisfying as Live

Ok... so if Shogun is "middle of the pack" - aka mediocre - then what does that make Sonnen?

The only guy that Shogun wasn't competitive with (until last night at least) was Jones (that guy that makes everyone look terrible).

Shogun being competitive against other middle of the pack fighters over the last few years does'nt say much.

That was probably Chael's most impressive performance to date. He does well against guys with horrific wrestling.

Its insane that Chael looked like a million bucks this fight, but Jones made him look like a bum.
