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

    wish he went to cordeiros early, shogun has pretty underrated takedowns

    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.

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

    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
