Shogun is going to get his ass kicked.
The general consensus is Sonnen dominating in grappling. I wouldn't be too confident in Shogun getting his ass kicked.
Shogun had all the natural skills to be among the best MMA fighters ever but after his injuries no sportsman can be the same.
Shogun still has big power in his strikes and Sonnen wilted under the power of Anderson's strikes in the second fight. If Shogun is able to keep it standing for more then two minutes then he can definetly land a huge power strike to the body, after training with Freddie Roach.
Saying that we dont know how extensively Shogun has trained under Roach. We shall find out.
I got Sonnen winning this matchup but wouldnt bet on it if Shogun has tightened his striking and actually uses the same technique Roach has taught him.
