At 205, how so you see this fight going?
Prime Shogun would destroy Rumble, and I am nothing near a Rua nuthugger.
It would be a tough fight for both men.
I don't know... These questions can't be answered but that doesn't stop people from thinking one answer is factual. Truth is, I don't know and neither does anyone else.
Shogun would destroy him, on the feet it would be relatively even and his durability during his prime was insane but once it hit the mat which it would Shogun would TKO/KO him or submit him. Rumble's ground game is weak.
A roided out Shogun destroyed almost everyone in Pride, so Shogun.
A UFC debut cycling off Shogun, he would lose pretty badly.
I'd pick 2005 Shogun over any 205lber ever... except maybe 2011 Jon Jones.
If Shogun doesn't turn his lights off completely he'd at least break Johnson, make him give up.
There's no evidence of prime Shogun being knocked out, but there is plenty of evidence of Rumble crumbling under resistance.
Odds are Shogun would win by TKO or sub after Rumble loses steam.
