    Shogun sustained no serious injuries against Gus. Love to see him fight asap maybe May or June.

    Who do you think Dana going to give to Shogun?? Winner of Jackson/Teixeira, loser of Machida/Hendo or Mousasi?

    IMO any of those fights would be epic, personally love to see Machida/Shogun III or Hendo/Shogun II

    Thiago Silva.

    But really, I wouldn't mind seeing him retire. It's clear at this point that he doesn't move the same anymore. No kicks, no light footworks, no movements, no reflexes. The guy I've been watching since 2010 isn't the Shogun that I know. Perhaps it's because of the 3rd ACL injury after Machida took him down in the rematch that completely shot his movement and the ability to kick.

    Mousasi would be a excellent fight for Shogun

    Shogun needs to be brought down in the division imo. Have him fight maybe 2 mid level fighters, then bring him back to the contenders.

    I agree that Thiago Silva would be a good fight for him but I don't think that he should retire yet. He's still competitive and he's making good money. I personally think that Shogun is trying to reinvent his style a bit; it would explain why he's been initiating clinches and trying for takedowns more and more. It would be awesome to see him against Rashad, though. Then he would have fought pretty much every elite light-heavyweight (unless I'm missing someone).

    Thiago Silva otherwise let him welcome Mousasi to the UFC.

    I wish that he and 'Page would fight if Glover wins their fight.

    Retirement hopefully.

    Pains me to say it. Shogun is my favorite fighter. But it's time.

    Let Mousasi beat him up so he can get a bot of hype behind him when he enters the ufc or fed him to Glover (in case shogun doesn't duck him again)

    I think Thiago Silva would make sense.
