Do you have a link to that quote/interview?
Is in portuguese, but here:
He said something like: “I don't think I would submit him. I think Shogun wasn't read to fight that night. He's a great fighter and didn't gave excuses, like many do. I think he let me have my moment. I don't think I faced the real Shogun”, said Sonnen.
I'm looking for another interview where he said another respectful thing about Shogun, also in portuguese. It's the same one he said his idols are Royce and Marco Ruas, but I can't find.
