    Exactly 5 years ago today. The American Gangster, Lord Chael Sonnen effortlessly dominated fellow legend Shogun Rua. The agony and despair on shoguns face post fight says it all. It was a beautiful MMA moment to watch Lord Chael show some mercy and empathize with Shogun after the fight.

    Was definitely expecting this to be a Travis Browne thread but alright. Great card though.

    Damn. Shogun has given us ton of shoop material.

    Yeah Chaels crafty, shoguns fight iq has never been that high either imo. Always a warrior, and a class act though, so ill always support him.

    100% . Was hoping he'd get through Anthony Smith and get that title shot, to see him win that belt again ( however unlikely it would have been) would have been gold

    That was a funny night on Sherdog. Same night Travis KO'd Reem. Also early McNugget cult was in effect when he beat Holloway. So much fun trolling.

    too brutal. If any time was good to retire maybe it is now. He's probably still got a few decent fights left but long term wise dudes took some serious damage

    Yep. This one really stung the shogun/brazil fans and just really hurt shogun in general. Chael pissed off a lot of those Brazilian fighters to sell his fights, and always gave them shit about their black belts. Then he goes out and submits one of them lol

    Big Shogun fan, but that was probably the most embarrassing loss of all time

    Mediocre Chael Sonnen pulling guard and submitting you? Good grief....

    Shogun must have stopped training after the 2nd Machida fight. Dude looked so good vs Machida then proceeded to fall off the face of the earth. I’ll never understand
