I don't know why people think that Shogun will be at a disadvantage because of lack of being able to stomp and soccer kick. I don't know if it's just me but Shogun hasn't really finished off many opponents with Stomps or Soccer kicks except for Jackson whom he already had nearly unconcious and Diabate. Not only has he not finished off many opponents but the soccer kicks and stomps are very hard to be accurate and effective with.
Sure it would be easier if he could do it but Shogun has fought in a cage before and I'm sure he knows what to do. Shogun has some good GnP and i'm sure he's been training elbows, he'll be fine.
As for Chute Box fighters in general, they will probably rely mostly on knees from the clinch. Chute Boxe fighters are notorious for that more than they are throwing soccer kicks and flying stomps. That is what makes the Chute Boxe style of Muay thai so unique because they utilize the clinch more than in traditional or Dutch Muay Thai.
