Dana did not say he did not know who Shogun is, what he was saying is that his fan base does not know who Shogun is. Wandy is a Celebrity in the UFC, he has fought in the UFC. Wandy made it into the cage to challenge Chuck. Simply put people outside of UFC do not know who Shogun is and if he stays in Pride Chuck will retire before they fight.

Also I think that Chuck is a horrible match for Shogun. It would end up the same way all of Chuck's fights do zzzzzz. If Shogun would have fought chuck last week he would still be sleeping. Shogun has to get back to the same fighter he was before his injury. There has not been anybody that could beat Chuck standing since Rampage did it 3 years ago. And nobody has beat him on the ground this decade. I would have to say that Chuck is the best at 205 in the world today.

I would also have to say that Dana really wanted chuck to fight wandy, I mean Dana was an announcer at the Rampage vs Chuck fight. So I dont think that he is scared of looking bad. Fact is I dont think that Wandy deserves to fight Chuck at this point and that is the real problem. Wandy now needs to prove that he isn't washed up.

Damn, I hate Dana White with a passion. Its Dana's fault that the fight with Chuck never happened because he is too greedy and he is a f***ing disgrace to MMA.

Unless your a big MMA fan, you wont really know who Shogun is. I couldnt pick him out in a line up, and i like MMA a lot. Most average UFC watchers wont know who he is.

IMAO Pride should've let Wandy fight Chuck for free if they were so confident he could win. They could've paid him his $150k. The exposure received from that fight would've been INCREDIBLE. If they really wanted a "presence" in the USA that could've done it. Again, IMHO.

Dana's no better than those shady boxing promoters he rips on all the time. However, he is crafty and knows how to make hype out of nothing and that makes money. I wouldn't be surprised if Chuck does fight Shogun down the road. And when Shogun wins, he would be the next defector from Pride to the UFC for 300K a fight!

Fav Fighters: Arlovski, Filipovic, Franklin, Hughes, Fedor

Not that I think Leben deserved a title shot, he sure did do more to earn it than Macdonald. Leben won a lot more fights than Macdonald before losing to Silva. I know beating Franklin would be a big deal, but I'm tired of all these people coming in and getting title shots without really earning it. I know they might have done well outside of the octagon, but I think they should have atleast 5 fights before getting a title shot. This is just my opinion

Wow, I can't believe all of the language in this post. Not that I'm against it, I'm just amazed at the anger it's bringing out in people. And from you ricefarm, I'm very shocked and disappointed.

I think he meant that "nobody" (meaning the UFC fans) knows who shogun is. Therefore in their eyes, shogun is not up there with the rest of the LHW division.
