Hype? No, Shogun is the real deal.
He battered Rampage in PRIDE, brought the Machida Era to a screeching halt, destroyed Mark Coleman and Chuck Liddell violently knocked out Alistair Overeem twice, bashed Ricardo Arona's brains into the canvas in PRIDE. And of course had one of the most amazing fights in MMA history against Lil' Nog, a fight in which any other man may have been KO'ed by the vicious shot Lil' Nog landed on him.
You say hype? What hype? He's the greatest 205 lb fighter in MMA history. It's undeniable and the truth is he's more than likely going to reign over 205 for a LOOONG time.
Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.
