So Sad – So Sad. This was a gimme fight and he got owned in the last round – until the very end by a fluke stand up – Frank Shamrock would have had a chance on this one. Log in to Reply YodaSanklai January 18, 2009 Boring fight. This is not Shogun that I used to respect like in Pride. Log in to Reply Denova January 18, 2009 CouldnÂ´t end a 44 year man…The days of Shogun are way behind… Log in to Reply David January 18, 2009 wow i cant believe that is the same shogun from PRIDE. his ground game looked awesome and his striking was pretty good but his cardio was awful. he was lucky that he was fighting coleman who i think ran out of gas after 3 minutes lol Log in to Reply mirco888 January 18, 2009 Shogun needs to practice some sprawling and dirty boxing badly….. Log in to Reply Matman January 18, 2009 His hands were sloppy, he couln’t stand in front of the best like that. Apparently he’s gonna fight Chuck in Montreal. I’m so gonna be there! Log in to Reply shhh January 18, 2009 wtf if shogun wouldve fought another fighter he ass woudlve been killed….he has got to regain his cardio Log in to Reply havik951 January 18, 2009 shouldnt have been stopped there. shogun was horrible against a tired 40+ year old Log in to Reply Steamer Bean January 18, 2009 Coleman gave him hell. Shogun has always been kinda sloppy, but he really looked like shit here. It was a nice finish but it should have come much, much sooner. Log in to Reply BJ January 18, 2009 wow all of you are soooo quick to judge man i guess none of you has had knee surgery on both knees you just cant come back 100% it takes like 1 year or more to fully get back what you used too , besides age has noting to do with it 90% of you i know has said randy is overrated and cant beat tim.. well lookie what happend KEYBOARD WARRIORS UNITE ! Log in to Reply meenee January 18, 2009 First of all, great fight. Very entertaining, but also frustrating. First of all, yes, shogun’s cardio was nowhere near where it needed to be. that was an embarrasment. the third round was embarrasing for him. Getting schooled by a 44 year-old, who was aobviously gassed halfway through the first round is not impressive. On the other hand, i gotta give it up for coleman. Even if he was completely gassed, he did reasonable well. BUT: Again, to people complaining that Shogun is nowhere near his pride days – if this fight had been under pride rules, Shogun would have soccerkicked coleman to death late in the first round for a tko win right there. He doesn’t have the opportunity to do that in the ufc, and that might mean a big difference Log in to Reply ness2k January 18, 2009 Shogun just needs to work on his cardio. Log in to Reply eyeless January 18, 2009 Yeah, OK, so it wasn’t the sharpest we’ve seen either fighter, but it was an entertaining fight, moving from standup to ground and back, without too much lay and pray, which I expected more of. Shogun was going for subs and still had accurate shots, although both fighters seemed lethargic. It wasn’t as bad of a performance as everyone is saying (a lot of fighters have “one of those fights”). I’d like to see a Shogun vs. Rich Franklin standup war. Log in to Reply yoububg January 18, 2009 Please no rematch. I could’nt sit through another fight like that. I like how Joe had to interview Coleman against the cage, because you could hardly stand. Log in to Reply The Black Swordsman January 18, 2009 I love hearing people talk about Pride like it was the golden age of MMA … there was a lot of shady shit going in Pride … fight fixing , steroids , etc. The majority of the guys who’ve crossed over to the UFC ain’t shit now and Shogun is no exception. He was a world beater in Pride but now he looks like he’s washed up at 27 … the debate is over the UFC > Pride. Log in to Reply gotcrowd.com January 18, 2009 This was a good fight, Rua didnt look as bad as Rogan says???? ZColeman is big! Log in to Reply ucsdtijuanero January 18, 2009 At one point I thought that Shogun really wanted to hurt Coleman and therefore go to distance. However, I was really disappointed in his cardio and his inability to finish the fight when he had him in an alma plata. Now, people are saying that his prime was a long time ago in those Pride years, but for goodness sake, this guy is only 27 years old. Something weird is going on here… either those injuries took a toll on him, or I smell steroids. Log in to Reply jeremyemilio January 18, 2009 I’m not a big fan of either fighter, but you all need to go back and watch this fight again with the sound off. Rua destroyed Coleman for two full rounds. Did he look tired midway through the second? Sure. But his strikes remained very sharp and dangerous throughout the fight, which is the true test of endurance (not the look on the guy’s face). Coleman takes him down in round three and keeps him there for a couple of minutes; not a huge surprise… Coleman’s a great wrestler. But Rua end it before the bell giving him not only the TKO, but all three rounds as well. What more do you want? Log in to Reply theicemancometh January 18, 2009 Did Coleman have a stroke or something? Wow, his interview at the end was less than impressive. Log in to Reply theicemancometh January 18, 2009 Get ready for another KO for Chuck Liddell when he fights Shogun in April. Rua is done, son. Log in to Reply Melissa Purple January 18, 2009 Wow it’s a good thing Coleman didn’t return to the UFC with a fight against Lesnar. His face would have turned into hamburger meat. Log in to Reply MMAGiantSilva January 18, 2009 Terrible Stoppage Great fight for Coleman if Coleman was 20 yrs younger he wouldve ate Shogun alive. Log in to Reply sledhead January 18, 2009 shogun looked crappy. he will get past no one in the light heavyweight division. 27 years old and he fought like he was 57. weak shit Log in to Reply PUBLIC7ENEMY January 19, 2009 MAURICIO RUA AND WANDERLEI SILVA is not d same fighter in PRIDE anymore. No more speed, No more aggressiveness. Take them out of d rankings. they shud be rank 20 – 30’s Log in to Reply ninja jay January 19, 2009 that ref was a fu*king retard he should be fired bad calls mark was still able to defend and that knee call was bull sh*t too other then that shogun look the worst ive ever seen him but his leg kicks were pretty bad Log in to Reply Nitro January 19, 2009 I thought the stoppage was good. Coleman was out and had they let it keep going he would have just got punched more for no reason because Shogun already won. How is it that nobody has commented on the banana pic ? Log in to Reply Niv January 19, 2009 I’m with BJ on this one. Rua’s cardio is nowhere near where it needs to be, but I suspected the same thing, two knee surgery’s in over a year take a long time to recover from. You can’t train cardio when your knees are recovering. Rua is a cardio machine and that was always one of his strongest characteristics; I really think this guy’s going to own the division provided he doesn’t blow another tire. Log in to Reply Castro January 19, 2009 A lot of you guys attack Coleman for using roids, but I bet some of you didn’t know Shogun did as well. Same with Wanderlei, and Crocop. Wanderlei took 9 months off after signing with the UFC to clean out his cycle. Crocop looked fat and out of shape UFC debut, and look at shogun’s cardio compared to when he was in Pride. Pride actually use to encourage use of steroids, they use to recommend which ones to use. Log in to Reply dEMIURGE January 20, 2009 what an early stoppage. shogun must work his cardio. he looks as old as coleman. the old guy did a good job, but he gassed out. but if you’re 44, it’s bound to happen. ufc should reconsider giving these two more fights. lol. and if they win, we can have coleman vs rua 3. lol Log in to Reply elguy January 20, 2009 You guys are a bunch of idiots.Coleman was out, down and with his hands on the floor , which in my book means stoppage ,you always critisize guys that do “lay and pray” (which was exactly what Coleman did,cause he hardly do anything when he took it to the ground),Shogun had enough cardio to land that beautiful combination that put coleman on the verge of KO ,what are colemans abilities as a fighter ,besides takedowns ?he is unidimensional and OLD and is better for him to retire before he gets serioulsy mauled. Log in to Reply toÃ±o January 20, 2009 shogun couldnt finish because his LACK OF CARDIO..in the first round he was as gassedd as coleman……i wanna see a shogun with cardio and takedown defense….could be interest again… Log in to Reply Niv January 20, 2009 Castro I don’t by this tired old story that Pride fighters were all on roids. Wandy took nine months off because he was lights out ko’d twice in less than three months. Anyone can tell you once you’ve been ko’d you are susceptible to it happening again. Wandy did what he needed to try and heal himself, and if you look at Cro Cop and Shogun in Pride their builds are virtually identical now as they were then. Wandy’s training regimen is renowned in the mma world and is copied by many fighters and teams, so give it a rest guys. Log in to Reply igibbons January 20, 2009 That fight was stopped early and Coleman wouldve made it out of that round, and quite possibly won the fight. What a shame. Log in to Reply N1SHOGUNFAN January 20, 2009 Shogun has a lot of proving to do based on all of those comments left, however with him training with the AXE for his fight with Liddell, his cardio should be up to par with those who doubt… WAR SHOGUN!!! Log in to Reply Danby January 20, 2009 Coleman had nothing to be ashamed of in that fight. As gassed and old as he was, he still did quite well. I think Shogun would actually lose to kimbo slice. Ya i said it. HA HA HA! Log in to Reply KingCreepy January 23, 2009 That stoppage was probably early, shogun would have probably stopped him, but not right there, if you watch the video, before the ref gets rua off of coleman, mark is already moving to grab one of rua’s legs, showing that he should have been givin a few more seconds. dissapointing fight. Log in to Reply thaddiusluster January 31, 2009 if this fight had been in PrideFC; it would of ended in the very 1st rd. and everyone would be singing praises to Shogun. Face people ufc is a very limited, restricted environment to a real MMA/ValeTudo fighter like Shogun! Log in to Reply thaddiusluster January 31, 2009 Steroid allegations are biased and unfounded; just meant to discredit the superior Pride org. Wouldn’t you agree that after the fall of Pride, many fighters future’s were uncertain; many relocated to the US; and many close knit schools and friendships were severed in the process(ChuteBoxe,BTT) along with serious injuries like in the case of Shogun, would definitely have and adverse effect on a fighters performance! Log in to Reply Anonymous July 9, 2009 “shogun who??? evans wud knock his ass out, rampage wud knock his ass out, wanderlei wud knock his ass out, forrest wud knock his ass out, even grandfather chuck wud knock his ass out” LOL he already knocked out grandpa chuck, and DESTROYED rampage in pride, i agree if this was pride rules shogun would be running a train on the UFC, he’s all about soccer kicks/stomps/knees while the opponent is down, UFC rules are hampering his fighting style Log in to Reply Wacka July 15, 2009 That was the best fight i have seen in awhile!!!
