Sho gun is still very young he still has plenty of time to dominate the ufc.

too bad he doesn’t fight like that in the UFC.

one of the few fights he doesnt employ soccer kicks or stomps to the head.

He just needs to be alot more athletic, get back to his natural quickness and ferocity some how

shogun was still young when this happened,right now he’s like an overused machine that’s gonna snap any time soon

Overeem had this fight but gassed. Shogun isnt as strong and explosive as he was before. These fighters moved in opposite directions after this fight.

Injuries are Mauricio’s only problems.
His bad cardio is a direct result of not being able to train properly.
IMO he was lucky not to reinjure his knee & he knew that, look at his performance, it was lack luster to say the least.
I have a feeling his Cardio will be much better this time around.
Cardio is not something easily fixed in between fights. Cardio takes a good year to possess at such large level as fighting non-stop for 3-5 rounds.

Or maybe like other fighters he was juicing and just was never that explosive without the stuff…MAybe!!!

I hope Shogun obliterates Chuck.

Thanks for the post I’m an overeem fan. Wish shogun was still like this I missed his glory days. If he doesn’t show up as good as he is in the video for ufc 97 I’m routing for chuck.

That was vintage Shogun pre-knee surgery. I have no doubt in my mind that the cardio machine wrecking ball will return to form, I just hope it comes now as I’d hate to see another bad performance from this guy.

Shogun is naturally the most gifted fighter in his class and I expect him to back that up soon.

If Shogun gasses like he did in the fight with Coleman..Chuck WILL win.

pride was the s***

push chuck to retirement…. no offense, but hes better if he goes with his head up high, we don’t want another shamrock… shogun was consider the best 205! he just needs to get back to the old days of training hard, and fighting with the hearth…

Liddell is gonna knock his ass out. Liddell might not be an elite fighter anymore but he’s lost to 3 guys in the Top 10 in his weight class … Shogun couldn’t do s*** against Marc Coleman … like Mark Coleman are u serious ?

The overall ground game of ufc fighters in general is much more versatile and impressive of that compared to Pride. Not badmouthing pride, or pride fighers, but if you had a really solid BJJ in Pride… you’re chances of winning were increased dramatically, you have to have that in UFC, or you’re going to lose. It’s a different ballpark. I don’t see alistar fatigued at all, I seen him pass up opporunities to take dominate ground position because he doesn’t have a fully developed arsenal, and I seen shogun slowly overwhelm a 1 dimensional fighter. Nothing here impressed me except for Alistar continually letting shogun stand up without even swinging at him.

Nice fight Bruno, thanks!! Now I know how Fedor is going to beat Overeem.

paddedummy Says, in 3-16-2009 at 20:47:36 from    

Overeem is doing much better now that he constantly knees his opponents in the balls
