We have to give Shogun the respect he deserves not because he was extremely good in pride, but...

    Because he torched the incredible Dragon at a time when he really looked invincible and Rua came along and solved the riddle and actually made Machida very beatable and that by itself is an amazing feat! Do u agree?

    The reasons to respect Goatgun are innumerable.

    He beat Lyoto twice. He would've been the LHW GOAT if he didn't have so many injuries.

    Still has 1 of the best resumes in LHW history
    Won the biggest Pride GP defeating Prime Rampage, Prime Lil Nog, Prime Overeem, and Prime Arona.
    Won the LHW UFC title defeating Machida
    He had the greatest fight in mma history imo with Hendo in a fight where he had 4 more TDs and landed 19 more strikes along with 6 more passes on the ground.

    Amazing career one of the best to ever fight. I was never big Shogun fan always thought he was a little overrated personally but over the years my views have changed. I appreciate him more now and everything he’s done for the sport of MMA. It be sad day when he retires.

    Give Shogun respect because he goes in and gives it his all every single fight, win or lose. He's either putting his opponent to sleep or going out on his shield. A true warrior.

    WAR SHOGUN!!!

    It’s not one or the other. Shogun deserves respect for his entire career and resume, which includes PRIDE but also his UFC accomplishments. Absolute legend.

    Shogun is one of the few fighters that is impossible to hate for anything.

    Never seen much hate for Shogun on Sherdog. Just a couple of trolls here and there.

    All respect and well deserved for a legend.

    No matter what Shogun did or what injuries he may have never had, he would've been killed by Jones regardless. That said, Shogun was a god among men within his generation of fighters.

    Mauricio Shogun Rua should be respected because he is the 2nd most accomplished LHW fighter in the history of the sport.
