They both have an history, 1-1, with one of the fights being very close, but Lyoto won. The question here isn't about their two fights, but their career in general. Shogun won the hardest Grand Prix ever and coming to the UFC as one of the best fighters alive. He struggled in the UFC, but then won the Gold knocking Lyoto out. Now he's racing very fast right into retirement. He's 1-4 in his last 5 and he's only 33. But his career had some glorious moments. Lyoto started MMA with 16-0, beating Rashad to won the gold. He brought Karate to MMA mainstream. Such an unique style. Has beat some great names of the sport such as Rashad, Rich, Shogun, Henderson, Mousasi, Couture, BJ, Ortiz, Etc... He's been in the top 1-5 of his divisions for almost 6 years in a row and still counting. He is still one of the most feared and respected fighters right now, despiste his age of 36. Both legends of the sport, who won the battle, who will retire with a greater career?!
