    Hmm, good Q. The tming would work out. Haven't heard a lot about the precise timing for the TUF 8 season or Mir-Nog; it would be a little bit late to have the title fight on the NYE card, but not much.

    There's already BJ Penn vs. GSP/Fitch (whoever wins the upcoming title fight) strongly rumored for the NYE card, and Silva-Cote is a distinct possibility dependent upon how much damage Silva takes vs. Irvin and vs. Okami at UFC 88. Also Wanderlei vs. TBA is rumored for the NYE card.

    Add Shogun vs. TBA to that mix and you have an over-the-top supercard.

    Then he comes to the UFC and gets out worked by Griffin then gets hurt or was hurt who knows.
    He's still with Chute Box which is know for there bad cardio I just don't think Shogun will ever be a success in the UFC and if he fought Forrest 20 more times he be defeated 20 more times.
    Yep beating Rampage, Lil nog, Arona, Gono, Nakamura, Overeem, and Randleman plus winning the pride gp is overrated?

    Chute boxe known for their bad cardio? Did you ever see Shogun's fights in pride? He could go balls out for 20 minutes straight without gassing. Didn't you figure there was something wrong that he gassed within 6 minutes? Well pretty much everyone who knew what Shogun was about did so! Then we found out that he had an injury walking into the fight and obviously a ruptured acl will hurt ur cardio bad.

    and before you ever start saying yea shogun had to make excuses. He never did... it was one of his trainers who revealed the injury. Shogun never used it as an excuse.

    Dude...I was at Woodstock, too. And I filmed Kimbo's first backyard fight. They paid me a six-pack because I was the only one in the neighborhood with a camera.

    Plus, I went to junior high with Metallica and I fucked Green Day's sister. Well, really, I just touched her boob.



    through her shirt.




    But she totally wasn't wearing a bra, so it counts!

    Dude, this is one of the most ignorant posts I've ever read from a regular member. Did someone hijack your account or something? If not, then......

    Anyway was Shogun hurt in that fight? if he wasn't then doesn't have an excuse.
    I just don't believe the shogun hype anymore.

    Maybe I am wrong we will see when he comes back, maybe the old Shogun will return.
    Yes, Shogun had a knee injury before the fight, and couldn't train properly. He had his first knee surgery days after the fight, but didn't publicize it or discuss the injury as an excuse, because he doesn't make excuses; he's a fighter.

    As for not believing the Shogun hype "anymore" didn't you already say you thought he was overrated going into the Griffin fight? I'm curious as to who you think was better than him?

    Oh and he's not with Chute Boxe anymore. He opened up a new school with Ninja called "The University of Fighting".

    Wow, 20 out of 20 times.
