I'm disappointed in you fans that are bashing him blindly, wow so his gas tank isnt that great, so what, once he tunes that then everyone jumps bandwagons again
The expectations are way too high for a man who just got off 2 ACL injuries, and he beat Mark down for 3 rounds getting a TKO.
Coleman was coming off of a 2 year hiatus from even fighting, an ACL injury (if I remember correctly when he was trying to fight Lesnar) and being at least 15 years older than him and cut from 245 pounds to 205.
I'm sorry but it seems that Coleman was a bunny rabbit waiting to be killed when Shogun should have acted like a lion. But he turned into Sailor Moon and petted the bunny rabbit to death.
Those are my two cents, hopefully I'm not fighter bashing I'm just saying that Coleman had a lot more stacked against him than Shogun IMO and well Shogun just didn't have the instinct anymore
They both had terrible cardio which came from the leg injuries, they take away a lot of your ability to condition the body properly. Coleman had a tough road but he had a lot more time to train and spent a lot of time off on his own terms, he should have been ready.
No exucses for Shogun his tank sucked which made everything else a shade grayer too, but still this fight was good for 1 and 1/2 rounds. Gassing sucks. I do sports and combative sports, when your tired you just lose that extra drive and even the will that you impel upon your opposition.
The expectations were just set too high, they should be like that now instead of then.
