    - the Lethal quote from bullit was genuinely thought provoking.

    this is the shitty-kind-of numb feeling that reminds me of another vastly underrated Mod,

    Conrad.

    respect to them both.

    Sad to know he was sick.... I remember him telling me something about missing an event to get an MRI or something but I had no idea. He was always here, and totally dedicated to this forum. We never really agreed on much when it came to MMA, but I always respect another MMA fan like him no matter what. RIP

    Should his family be made aware of the outpouring of condolences through this forum (if they aren't already aware)?

    A few years ago Shonuf missed a weigh-in thread and I made the post. I knew I was on the ball that day, the late and great Shonuf pinned the thread for me. Along with this and great conversations, is the reason(s) I salute you.

    Wow...

    I feel like a real piece of shit...

    He banned me once and i had never really let it go...
    (He banned me for misconstruing a joke)

    I know the last words i said to you and about you were unpleasant and down right rude..

    Just know that I'm sorry for the things I've said...

    Rip.

    Everything meaningful has no doubt been said about a guy who truly meant something.

    Always fair, considerate, and with a great way about humor as well as all things here.

    He was no doubt an even greater guy in real life. The world lost a little bit of light, however, let's make the days a little brighter trying to be just a little more like the good guy he was and hopefully always will be in our memories.

    Enjoy that good kung fu in the sky, Shonuf.

    I never had any personal interaction with Shonuf but I do recall a couple of interactions with posters. With so many mods over the yrs and their different proclivities, it was nice to see his consistency and patience. It sucks whenever one of the good ones are lost. My sympathies to his loved ones and his friends here at Sherdog.

    I just saw this and I'm absolutely gutted. He was an amazing person and a staple of the Worldwide MMA forum. RIP my friend.

    I used to live by the play by play threads back in the days when I cared more for MMA events. RIP good sir!

    Dealing with trolls on here all the time , makes you forget that some people on here are actually good people. He seemed like a great dude and though I didn’t interact with him often, I’ve seen him be an awesome guy to deal with.

    RIP Shonuf. Seems like you left quite a legacy. What an amazing thing to accomplish with people who may have never known you personally. Special people are out there.

    I've been so busy and visiting the site infrequently that I didn't realize this had happened.

    I usually encountered him in the play-by-play threads over the years and he always seemed upbeat and as genuinely interested in the undercards of any fight night as much as I was, which is rare.

    I had no idea he was sick. I only casually converse with a few Suredawggers here or there outside of this site, but I know we're all people battling our own issues, demons and countless hindrances. Life isn't easy, but it is the small things like this forum, where I can escape a bit, be overly opinionated and partake in the back and forth that we all commonly give one another, and for that I'm grateful.

    If you were affected by this, condolences. To him and his family, hopefully he's in less pain and his family can find a way to cope.

    Many times I'm a dick on here, but outside of these words on a screen, we're all here for the same thing: to express our joy or disdain for this sport we hold dear.

    RIP Shonuf. You'll be missed.

    Damn. I knew that he had a few health problems. Good guy. I didn't interact with him with the same depth or frequency as many others here but I always enjoyed it when we did. Smart, funny, and all around solid dude. He'll be missed.
