Idk. Shogun didn’t look
Idk. Shogun didn’t look great, but I wouldn’t say that’s why he lost.
He lost because a genetic freak was beating him at every aspect of the game, and he’s never really been much of a cardio monster.
Shogun was gassed against Lil Nog in pride after five min.
That’s just never changed.
And think about the Machida fights. They were all on the feet where Shogun controlled the pace. Why would he gas even if it was 25 min? It was a glorified sparring match with some good striking.
Bones took him down and controlled him, worked him against the cage, and lit him up whenever he wanted to, not to mention Shogun was headhunting and not using his kicks.
