shogun looking good and ripped

shogun looks good here. you can see hes in good shape and was clearly rusty vs jon jones with a bit of a belly before. his english also seems to be alot better. imo with the right diet he could be a middleweight.

He does look good, I agree.

However, if Jones v Shogun because the new Forrest v Shogun, I will hurl.

Here's to hoping he is 100% against Forrest this time. I want a good fight.

Thats great to hear. Jones would still smash him though.

I hope Shogun makes another run at the belt. I'd really like to see him rematch Jones or even 'Page (if he gets the belt). He's just an exciting guy to watch and I can't help but root for him. All respect goes to Griffin, but I'd rather have Shogun in the title picture.

Are you watching closely?

If he comes in sporting love handles like he did against Jon "Bones" Jones then Forrest will manhandle him a second time. The disdain he showed for Jones by not coming to the fight in shape was stunningly naive and massively myopic. I have tons of respect for Shogun but his performance against Jones was abysmal and I was aghast at how little of a gameplan or overall strategy he had to overcome Jones' advantages. Great of him to give Forrest Griffin the deserved props despite coming off an injury and being out of shape in their first bout.

He does looks to be in good shape already. As with all his fights I have my hopes up.

Win or lose I am always a fan.

Shogun does look really good. I am really excited for this fight, I'm still rooting for Forrest though. Couldn't have two nicer guys fighting.

Seems super humble and kind and his English is getting much better, hard to see how someone could not like Shogun as a person let alone a fighter.
