    On Sherdog, when Gus loses he is the better fighter than the opponent. When he wins, he is in a different universe.

    His fans a probably insecure that Shogun is his best win by far.

    Hi everybody. All of these old pride guys are 1000 years old. Time to stop thinking they are competitive anymore. Thank you.

    Prophet Jones made Shogun tap to strikes though.

    Shogun was in his mid 20s DEALING with chronic knee injuries that took away his prime years

    Youve never competed. You have no idea about anything youre talking about here.

    Also you still continue to ignore the point and grossly ignore context


    Youre a delusional Shogun hater bar none


    The POINT is Shogun IS insanely accomplished. To act like losses at the end of his career define him is absurd

    Forget Ali, in boxing you never see boxing legends get shitted on for lossess or lossess at the end of their career PERIOD...because boxing fans are actually knowledgable and respectful


    UFC fans/Shogun haters like you are simply the worst most vile scumbags on earth...acting like Shogun's losses define him, while ignoring his ALL time great resume, his all time legendary accomplishments. Truly ABSURD.

    He didn't have obstacles other guys haven't had.

    He never even missed that much time between fights. Weidman has had multiple surgeries, and was out a year before he fought Anderson.

    King Mo almost died after his cadaver ACL dissolved and his staph infection started eating his leg in the hospital.

    People never mention the surgeries Forrest needed, and he still beat Shogun. When Shogun was in his mid 20's, fresh out of Pride.

    If anyone doubts Gus' chin, some of those gifs and the Jones spinning elbow should suffice.

    Was it the 7 minute mark or the start of round 3 that Gus pulled away? Or was it close all the way through? I keep getting different versions of how Gus won this fight even though he was never in danger or losing.

    "the loss to Jones while injured", my favorite part of this thread.

    Gus has a MONSTER chin

    But the Jones spinning elbow is NOT indictive of anything IMO

    It hit Gus on the back of his head/ear/at the crown of his head...it landed very akwardly...it messed with his balance. I doubt Gus was ever truly rocked by it

    It had nothing to do with a massive flying knee that would have poleaxed 99% of the roster on the spot.

    Why does TS RANDOMLY attack people with CAPS LOCKED words. He comes off as slightly MANIC.

    Serious QUESTION...is there something sexual in this Shogun worship? I know people live vicariously THROUGH their sports heroes, but this is something ELSE.

    For those that may not believe in modern day Vikings, have a look at some of the shots that Gustafsson ate in this fight. It's older now but those shots would've flatlined anybody else in the division (maybe with the exception of Hendo but he would've shown he felt them if not been knocked down). Gus' chin is ridiculous. He made a lot of mistakes in this fight though and he's become a lot better technically since.

    They've actually used that as an excuse to claim the loss doesn't count.

    Shogun wasn't ready yet! Jones hit him with the knee and for the rest of the fight he couldn't get his head back!

    Everything after the knee wasn't the RREEAALL Shogun.

    Good post

    A prime healthy Shogun in todays environment with todays training smashes everyone. Jones and DC being his ONLY tough fights
