On the road going to Praia do Rosa in Santa Catarina, Brazil, where he will pass the carnival with his wife, Mauricio Shogun confirmed to TATAME the fight against Chuck Liddell in June in UFC. “I confirmed this fight yesterday. Everything is set to June and I hope to make a great fight and represent well my new team, the Universidade da Luta (Fight University)”, said Shogun, who is expecting to revenge the friend Wanderlei Silva, who was defeated by Liddell on UFC 79.

I am so impressed with the UFC's card thus far in 2008. Dana said we'de see nothing but stacked cards, and I have nothing to complain about yet.

Yeah, these cards are shaping up nicely so far. I am very excited for this fight. Unfortunately, I don't want to see either fighter lose. Especially, Liddell since he is one of my favorites and Shogun is too, yet I have been supporting Liddell much longer. It is unfortunate that Shogun may go 0-2. I think there is a good chance that Liddell will win, Liddell is a bad match up for Shogun. I hope it is a good fight and that it does not go to a decision, yet it more than likely will. If it does go to a decision, it had better be a good fight like Silva/Liddell.

Good news I've really been wanting to see this fight. I'm gonna give it to Chuck by KO/TKO in round 2. Hopefully it's as exciting as Wandy/Chuck and hopefully Shogun is healthy so all the talk after the Griffin fight doesn't start up again if Liddell wins

I think that Chuck will be able to control the pace of this fight and if that is the case i see Chuck KO in round two or three.....

dang this has got me biting my nails.

i never really liked shogun too much (or chutebox for that matter) but hes PRIDE alumni and i can't go against that.


i dont think shogun will try and trade with chuck for too long, so shogun by sub in the 3rd round!

As I think about it more, I'm going with Chuck. Can you expect Shoguns take downs to take down Chuck? Look who chuck has sprawled against Radny, Tito, Jeremy Horn, Sobral. And Shogun had trouble taking down Forrest. I don't know if Shogun can come out and close the distance enough to use knees on Chuck. But I know Shogun will be using kicks against him, but if Chuck comes out like he did against Wanderlei then Chuck's going to win.

Honestly, I'm a hue fan of both, and I'm a bigger fan of Shogun. But this fight I'm going with Chuck. Though I would like to see shogun win, one of those 'passing the torch fights' in that case. Just imagine how amazing that would look, Thai clinch, and Chuck actually gets laid out.

This is going to be great if Chuck beats him. I know if Shogun comes in shape this will be a pretty gnarly bang fest. I think if Chuck comes in hungry like he did for Wanderlei though he will win and get another title shot.
