    IMO this was the best, most seasoned,most skilled and most durable Shogun ever. Id take this Shogun over 2004 Shogun any day.

    Although I think that shows you the real difference in style during the title run, he's using quick movement a lot more, in this case backing up for defence. I'd say if anything shifted in terms of offencive technique it was actually more his kicking game than his boxing.

    Overeem is always winning, until he loses. Brutally.

    Except Gus outstruck him in every round and took takedowns 6 to 1. It would have been one of the worst decisions ever. First round was close, so you could score it to Shogun, but not the second and obviously not the third.

    Its not that I have any problem with Gus winning, I think he looked the better fighter in the end as Shogun gassed in the 3rd round and was in trouble. That said its the kind of fight that could have gone the other way and it wouldn't have been any kind of robbery, the 2nd round especially Gus did not outstrike Shogun who landed much better shots and the first depends how you weigh the grappling.

    Overeem was a monster for the first few minutes at 205. Then the massive cut would take its toll and well ZZZZZzzzzzzzz
