    Hes a jack of all trades, master of none type fighter. His biggest strength is not in one area, like with most fighters, but the fact hes well versed in such a diverse range of fighting techniques.

    Another thing i like about Shogun is something Bas Rutten mentioned a while ago, look at him when he strikes. He never takes his eyes off his opponent, as practical as that sounds, its a rare trait.

    yeah Im the same way I dont get how some people will watch hands or feet they are really easy to bate. When you focus on one eye you can see all of the bodies movement out of the corner of your eyes. You can see shoulder movement telegraphs little tells for every motion. You become much better when you can get that down its one of the most important things in fighting and alot of people dont do it

    I was more impressed with his Pride-USA performance. Sure it was against Kevin Randleman (not the greatest, still no joke though), but that kneebar was SICK!

    I like Shogun cause he gave me a "nice job" and a pat on the back at his seminar.

    I think that some people don't find shogun that impressive because a lot of his fights seem to have ended with a series of weaker strikes with a ref stoppage rather than those brutal knockouts that silva/crocop/lidell are famous for. But, he does have the potential to be the best 205 lber ever.
