    He barely beat 50 year old Nog. No one is back.

    There have been glimpses of the old Shogun. I am talking about kicks and airplaning out of exchanges. But he is not the same.

    He looked good, but I wouldn't get too excited. He'll never see a title shot again.

    I agree with this. Glad to see him kicking again.

    He needs to work on his defence
    Was throwing some shots from stupid angles which he shouldn't be doing

    Good performance but he aint back. He got rocked and cardio was average at best.

    Gassed in 3 rounds. I loved that he won, but he went 5 against Lyoto and looked like he could go another 5. He was never the same after the machida fight because he fucked his knee up again. He won the fight, but he came back like shit

    He barely got past Lil Ole Nog and didn't look good doing it. He still has some good fights though, like Rampage 2.

    No, just no. This gets said every single time he wins a fight and then its back to "his knees are done, loss doesn't count" every time he loses.

    His kicks looked really good at least he still has those. Was very surprised to see him shooting for takedowns and trying to push Nog against the fence instead of going for the thai plum
