    On what Shogun is lacking in his game
    I would really like to see what Cordeiro could do for Shogun. What he did to Werdum and RDA is evident. Why not try it with Rua (again)?

    I think it could do wonders for Rua but I kind of feel that Shogun doesnt want to commit that much

    I think we all want to see this again

    The comments Master Rafael made after the Shogun vs Hendo were 100% correct anyway, not sure why Shogun got upset or who in his team got annoyed by them

    I'd love to see it but I doubt it happens. Hopefully Eduardo comments on this.

    Shoguns too much of a family man to make that commitment now. He should have a send off fight against Rampage or Lil Nog and call it a career.

    At this point, it's the best decision for him but Shogun is gonna Shogun.
     
  10. That last paragraph gave me goose bumps. Heart for days, but I just don't know how much mobility Mauricio has left. I think what a lot perceive as lack of motivation is him not being able to train his cardio the way he used to when his knees were good. He can't throw a lot of kicks and is a sitting duck for some of the more mobile guys.

    Lot of Shogun fans are hoping and wanting him to get back to training with Cordeiro

    Rafaels Chute Boxe 2.0 style has the same aggression but focuses on footwork, defense, and angles to set up kill shots. Easily the best striking coach in the game right now, hes done wonders with previously limited guys like RDA, Werdum, and Dariush... all looking like monsters.

    Although I think he shouldve retired long ago, would definitely benefit Shogun.

    Most underrated coach in the game now IMO.

    As much as I love Cordeiro, Shogun isn't lacking a fight trainer. He's lacking a fitness trainer.

    Any coach would benefit Shogun. Does he even train anymore?

    The game has passed Shogun's style and type by.

    He missed the boat on evolving, and now is just a puncher's chance fighter.

    I wish Shogun would retire. As a big fan, it just looks like he doesn't have much left. He looks tired when the fight starts.

    Don't get me wrong, he can still KO people. But I have the feeling Shogun will be dangerous when he's like 80.
