Shogun Expects To Return To The Octagon In December


From Tatame:

Away from the octagon since September 2007, Maurcio Shogun talked with TATAME after a magnetic resonance and is confident in his return to the UFC octagon. “My knee is very good, thanks to God. I was going to begin my hard train this week but I spoke to my doctor and he decides to make the exams this week. I have been doing Boxing and physical train, and I think next week I will return to the Jiu-Jitsu and gradually train more”, said Shogun, who watched, last Saturday, the man who defeated him at his last appearance win the UFC belt, but for a while Shogun don’t think in a return fight against Forrest Griffin.

“I will train hard to face anyone. I had a defeat on my debut and I can’t choose my opponent. It is not settle yet, but I expect to return on December, it’s better for me”, said Shogun, that will open a branch of the Universidade da Luta, at Curitiba , on 21st this month. “On 21st there will be a event only for the press and on 22nd there will be the open class to more than 800 students. Wanderlei Silva will be here”, said the athlete.
