Shogun: "I fight for 10 years one way and I will not change now"

Quote:
In October 2009, Lyoto Machida entered the octagon of the UFC to make his first title defense, and precisely against a Brazilian. On the other side of the cage was Maurício Shogun, one of the great names of defunct Pride. The 25-minute fight ended decisively in favor of Machida, but many people disagreed with the outcome.



The polemic about this decision was so big that today, more than five months later, fans still debate in forums around the world about who deserved the win. Determined to put an end to this discussion, UFC decided to arrange a rematch between the Brazilians on May 8, when the UFC will have its 113th edition in Vancouver, Canada. Warming up to the battle, TATAME Magazine went out, watched the training of the athletes and chatted with the stars about the second fight.



"It's a new fight. Even by the fact that Shogun is a very eclectic athlete and has this ability for change. This is a new battle, I’m prioritizing certain skills and we don’t know what is about to come. He has well-defined grounds, calculated movements, he’s good in both parts, in striking and on the ground, and so do I," Machida said, betting that the challenger will not change his tactics for the rematch. "It’s a strategical thing. Of course we end up repeating some moves, it’s normal, no one can change that much.”



In the exclusive report, Shogun reveals that he’s not changing his way of fighting. “I intend to build a strategy and follow it, but I still have the same fight style. I fight for 10 years one way and I will not change now, I'll fight against Lyoto and do what needs to be done to win," said the champion of the Pride GP in 2005, explaining a little bit about his strategy. "The kicking part for sure he will try to block, and probably is already working on these defenses. Surely the boxing part is one more option that I intend to use," he adds.

not really that surprising. There are many fighters who follow the same fighting style throughout their whole career and it mostly comes down to who is the better fighter at the end of it.

Chuck is one of those who fall into this category.

I think because everyone is expecting Lyoto to be more wary of the kicks, they want to know if Shogun is gonna change it up. I think him saying he is gonna utilize boxing more is a mistake....I still think and want Lyoto to win but honestly I think the kicks were the only reason the fight was so close and even that wasn't enough. I think he shouldn't completely abandon them or else it could be a long night for him, hell it might be anyway.

WAR MACHIDA!!!!!!

He's not saying he's going to follow the strategy, he's saying his style will be the same. Not really anything I'm shocked about.
