Just heard that Shogun is finally going to revamp his training camp. He's bringing in Freddie Roach, Mark Munoz, and reuniting with Rafael Cordeiro. I been looking for confirmation on this. I hope this is true, just adding some solid boxing to his arsenal can be very instrumental to his success. But adding the other two guys, I'm really hoping he returns to form or better.
*fixed that for you.

Usually, fighters that have a training camp with Cordeiro, have very good fights.
Last time Shogun had a training camp with Rafa was for his second fight with Forrest. And it was his best performance in recent years.
Shogun vs Thiago Silva would be a very entertaining fight.
Roach should improve his boxing... Shogun has always had some of the better Muay thai in all of MMA, but his hands left something to be desired...
Hopefully Munoz can help his wrestling... without injuring his Rib...:grinsmile1:
Shogun has "reunited" with Corderio several times over the years with mixed results... Rafeal is a proven coach, its more of shogun himself and the matchups he had...

Too bad his career was plagued by instrumental (:huh:) surgeries and injuries... I mean detrimental...
like someone said above, when he trains with Rafa he always seems to be at his best!

Shogun vs. Hendo 2 would be nice once Dan gets stopped by Lyoto...
Shogun vs. Glover or Davis would be nice as well... I could honestly see both of them beating shogun, moving themselves up the LHW ladder.
I agree with everything except with the great sub skills part.

Shogun has only 1 victory by submission in his whole MMA career. He tries leglocks in almost all the fights but his opponents always escape. Only Randleman has been submitted by Shogun and that was almost 7 years ago.
The true wizard of leglocks is Minowaman xD
