I don't like Shogun as much as I used to. I'm not even sure why, he used to be one of my favorites but these days I'm pretty "meh" about him, winning or losing. No clue why.

I like Shogun and always have.
A true gentleman and warrior.

It's a shame his knees are that of an 80 year old man though.

Damn, looks like I missed the drama. I have some popcorn in the cupboard as well....

No insulting needed in an awesome Shogun video highlights thread.

Shogun is a legend, and one of the most exciting fighters ever. As the UFC signs more and more boring point fighters, we still can count on Shogun to fight balls to the wall every time. This is why we love Shogun.

Even if he doesn't win as much anymore I'm still a hardcore fan. Shogun love.

I wonder what Shogun would look like presently if his knees weren't so horribly damaged? His wrestling has never been that great and LHW has some solid wrestlers these days

I don't think he would be champion but I think he would be top three, at least. Jones is just a terrible matchup for him stylistically speaking and I think Gustafsson would probably beat him too. Perhaps Cormier as well? This is just pure speculation though, we don't really know and probably never will. But the Shogun that fought Machida twice was absolutely brilliant, as was the Shogun back in Pride. I'll never forget that absolute thrashing he gave Rampage (my favorite fighter at the time). I was in shock at how dominant he looked and how completely outclassed Rampage was. I've never seen Rampage look scared before but he looked completely terrified once the fight had stopped. Like he met a ghost or something.

I liked Shogun...you know...the PRIDE Shogun, the one who ruled LHW before a Prime Forrest Griffin took his soul in embarressing fashion














(aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand awaits the negs).......

but in all seriosness, he's a legend I hope rekindles some former glories, he's too young to have his winning ways taken from him...I hope he gets that spark back.
