    Seems like he doesn't cut much weight to get to 205 and never had a six pack. His cardio is bad and he isn't gonna be champ at 205 again. At MW he would have to train more cardio to lose weight and would be in better shape and maybe have a six pack before a fight. I think he could be a threat at MW just like Machida is. Why doesn't he go down? Is he to 'lazy'? (I know he's not lazy) just seems like he stays at 205 cause its easier. He could be a beast at MW. Thoughts?

    Shogun can still hang at Light Heavyweight. I had him beating Gustaffson.

    He can hang with anyone in the first round. Get past that with the top 10 and he has a fight on his hands.

    Cutting massive amounts of weight is not for everyone

    Doesn't have the discipline with his diet or conditioning to make 185.

    That was a close fight despite popular opinion. I thought he edged it myself. I don't recall either guy doing anything to say one clearly won the fight.

    He understands that, as a fighter who hasn't been able to show up to a 205lb fight with acceptable cardio in almost 5 years, adding another 20lbs of weight cut probably isn't a prudent thing to do.

    Shogun only eaty, trainy, sleepy. No cutty or dietty.

    Dammit I might have to agree with whiteboycheckin that I thought it could have been scored a draw, didn't think Shogun won though.

    More to the point Wand said Shogun is a 220 lb guy, cutting 35 lbs isn't for everybody.
