Just a reminder on how badass Shogun can be

shogun_001-2

In anticipation of this Saturday’s fight between Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, we present to you a new Genghis Con film about Shogun’s LHW Grand Prix run in Pride.  Sit back and enjoy these ten minutes of Shogun’s former badassery, which we hope to see a glimmer of in this Saturday’s bout.  Previous UFC performances have tarnished the once exciting fighter — though watching this only reminds me that there are no soccer kicks and headstomps in the UFC, thus removing Shogun’s most effective weapons.

Taking away stomps from Shogun is like telling Jake the Snake that he can’t do the DDT.

    Holy shit, I have seen all those fights countless times (the first one live in Osaka dome!) but I forgot just how much of a badass Shogun is / was.

    That final kick to Arona was a precision piece of heel-to-face-asskickery.
