Does anyone really think Gustaffson can KO Shogun?

I was pondering about this, and imagining what a message that would send to Jon Jones if Gustaffson finished Shogun in the first round. But then I stopped, and started thinking about reality, and it appears that Shogun has never been knocked out before (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maur%C3%ADcio_Rua), let alone in the first round. Does anyone actually have any faith that Gustaffson can pull this off, or is he just blowing smoke?

 

The only reason I'm asking is because I'm really clinging to hope that someone can and will beat the hell out of Jon Jones, and I've pretty much counted everyone else on the "top 10" LHW list (http://www.mmaweekly.com/light-heavyweight-division-205-pound-limit-mma-top-10) out.

What does that matter? Shogun has 1 submission win in his entire 25+ fight career and it's over a guy with a 17-16 record' date=' Davis has 3 in about 10 fights. Shogun sucks.[/quote']

 

Shogun is a former UFC champ and so is Kevin Randleman

 

Gustafsson and Davis aren't, they've been fed cans for most their careers.

 

Shogun sucks? LOL, Name another LHW to win titles in Pride and the UFC

Gus striking has significantly improved and although he doesht have one punch KO power, he would wear Shogun down with his striking.

 

If Shogun gets into a precarious position on the ground, Gus would have no problem finishing him with hammer of thor punches. Lets be honest, Shogun has gotten used to taking shots to the face as a defense and GUS is not one to risk against.

Randleman is 17-16 and even Shogun could submit him, please refrain from trying to make him look legit. thanx

If Hendo had trouble trying to finish Shogun, then I think Gus will struggle as well

Shogun won a PRIDE GP' date=' which is basically a glorified tournament. Wanderlei Silva held the PRIDE belt for a long time and him and Sloscrub wouldn't fight each other. That didn't matter though because the GOAT came along and put Wandy to sleep right after winning the WW belt and held 2 PRIDE belts at the same time when Shogun couldn't hold one! Not to mention Dan kicked Sloscrub's ***, KILL EM DAN!!!!

Hendo lost in the tournament that Shogun won in Pride. But fine, if you don't wanna call it a belt.

 

Shogun was the UFC champ and Hendo couldn't do it in 2 tries

 

Hendo also uses TRT since 2007 to stay relevant, don't you think it's sketchy for every guy of his generation to have already faded out (Shogun - who's much younger - Wanderlei, Big Nog, Chuck, Randy - also a TRT boy - Fedor, etc.) and Hendo suddenly is at the best stage of his career at 42?

 

Most of the guys I listed have also been knocked out for being in too many wars but Hendo eats shots like a roided zombie.

 

Cool, he beat Shogun, but we all know that he had the testosterone of 4 men.

 

Chris Weidman said in his Q&A that his T/E ratio is much lower than what fighters are allowed to have, and Weidman is a young, healthy beast.

 

I'd rather see Shogun retire tomorrow then having results that he could never achieve without synthetic hormones.

 

That is all

Stopped reading right about there.

 

You want to talk about sketchy, what's sketchy is a 30 year old man suddenly having bacne outburst when it was never an issue before in his life. Don't just assume Dan abuses his TRT because your boy Chael Sonnen was. Dan recieved a TUE from the athletic commissions, his T/E ratio is checked often to make sure he is not abusing it. But if you want to play that game: We all know Shogun abused PED's throughout his time in Japan.

His time in Japan when you say he didn't win anything.

 

He won the UFC belt legitimately without banned substances and no TRT ********

 

And don't come here with the "abusing" bs, the fact is that without a synthetic substance Hendo would've been irrelevant 5 years ago, no matter if his ratio is 4-1, 6-1 or 10-1

 

And I stated many times that I don't agree with Chael's use of TRT

No. He couldn't even knock Thiago Silva out.

 

One of the reasons why I dont think Gus is all that yet !!!

 

Gus fought a Thiago coming from a suspension/lay off PLUS short notice PLUS fighting in Sweeden in front of his country (no doubt he was prepared 100% for it) and still couldnt finish Thiago (Machida did fairly easy on the 1st round for example)

 

I really got that Shogun was frustrated with his performance (cardio) against Vera and I do believe we will see a very improved Shogun facing Gus and that could mean a short night for Gustaffson !!!

 

If Gus wins it will be a UD, period

Gustaffson biggest asset is his killer instinct to kill with the hammer fist when he drops an opponent. I never said Shogun would go out, but when he gets down on the ground GUS is going to throw wicked hammer fists until the ref will have to stop the fight. Shogun may have a granite chin and probably wont go out, but the REF will stop it do to the punishment inflicted on Shogun.

 

War GUS:D

If you listen to the people who has been training with Gus through the years, now and even when he started up his mma-carrer here in Sweden, they are all in agreement, he hits redicioulusly hard. Onepunh-KO? Seems not, havn't seen it yet, but when he can drop guys with essentially a jab, thats striking-power.

 

If Shogun would, uncharacaristically, come to the fight ripped and in shape, then the fight could go either way, Shogun is after all experienced like a mother****er and his fightingheart is second to none... But if he comes as "Shobum", then the result will be TKO in first or maybe second round for Gus...

i think shogun is gonna win this fight pretty easy

 

i really really really was not impresed wiht gustaffsons last fight all he did was shake his behind

 

Since coming to the UFC Shogun has yet to make anything look easy. Even his punches/kicks are labored. The guy is done, Gus is going to wreck that booty. :D
