    to be honest i have a terrible feeling about the sonnen fight of course cuz im a bigger sonnen fan than i am a shogun fan and im having doubts if sonnen can make it thru 5 rounds with him. lets hope im wrong.

      Shogun is finished, hope he gets cut, how can you be a fan of a lazy out of shape waster, he obviously doesn care about his fans, if he did he would train and moved to a good camp years ago

  • Ray Douglas

    Shogun should be cut, the is lazy and out of shape, finished! Uriah Hall too, doesn have what it takes, should go back to Chucks sissy fight league

      The biggest failure of all is to think that you gain something by making fun of great people when they fail at something. You can’t become great without making mistakes. You can avoid trying to do anything ambitious, and you’ll be less likely to fail, but you don’t gain anything from that. You’ll just die some day having achieved nothing interesting or important. You are all the more pathetic if you try to make yourself feel or appear big by talking s*** about a great fighter when he loses. He’s not the fighter he once was, but Chael was also a terrible matchup for him. I think we should be more focused on giving Chael some credit for what he did here, it was very impressive.
