    I thought I remembered hearing that Shamrock was sick as a dog for that fight.

    He went out there swinging for the fences because he wanted to end it early, then wore himself out and was about to toss his cookies or pass out. That's when he told the corner to throw in the towel.

    Granted It's been a while since that fight so I may be off base here.

    I don't know if you can ever say "Fujita looked good in this fight" because every fight I see him in he just gets hit in the face a million times until he ends the fight. I judge his performance solely by how many times he gets hits with a punch that would definitely knock me out... and the more he gets nailed the better he's fighting in my opinion. It's a lot like when Homer Simpson was boxing and he would just let the guys pummel him until they got tired and passed out... Same basic fighting principle.

    I like Fujita as much as the next guy, but he didn't look all that great vs Jame Thompson until he KO'd him. Sure Thompson looked improved, but he isn't close to the same class as Wand. Wand hasn't looked great lately, but it's not like he has been fighting chumps. Fujita will have to fight much better to beat Wand. I don't think Wand can knock Fujita out or anything with that concrete head of his, but I could see Wand winning a decision possibly. Either way it should be a good, close fight.

    Silva has not looked good recently & his win over Arona was totally bogus. He only got the nod because Pride can market him better than Arona. Now he's no longer a Pride bride (contract disputes etc) I can't see him getting any favours from the judges this time & unless he KO's or dominates Fujita I can see him getting whooped.

    Maybe I'm still blinkered by the punch that shook Fedor, but that's how I see this fight.
    after watchin Shamrock-Fujita (watched it again this mornin!) im startin to think that too even if it was 6 years ago... I know im a fan, I sit back sometimes and say man I would love to knock that guy out or I would love to fight him, but Fujita... I dunno man I dont think i'd step into the ring with that guy, its scary thinkin about it.. you just keep hittin the dude and he keeps comin at you how the hell do you stop that?

    Shamrock quitting? I hope not
    it had to of been heart problems or somethin, I cant see anyone especially Shamrock just quitting a fight that he was winning.

    The Fujita fight minus the weird ass finish was Shamrock's absolute best display in his entire MMA career. No doubt in my mind. He was fighting a flawless fight there against a good opponent coming off wins against Mark Kerr ...and I THINK Gilbert Yvel, but definitely another good win that he was supposed to lose. And Shamrock dominated the shit out of him, plus he was smaller. His takedown defense was flawless, his striking was crisp and beautiful - the kicks and the punches, he had that guillotine turning him purple. He really showed his shit off that night, but then just quit. Some say heart problems, some say fatigue and giving up. Who knows, but prior to that he was fighting a perfect fight.
