Former UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua spoke with Tatame yesterday about his friend Wanderlei Silva's loss to Chris Leben at UFC 132, and also responded to Tito Ortiz. Silva was knocked out in 27 seconds by Leben, which obviously bothered his training partner at Kings MMA. Here's what he had to say in regards to Silva:

"I haven’t seen Wanderlei, I’m in San Diego and he’s in Las Vegas, but I was sad about the defeat", said Shogun, on a chat with TATAME. "It’s really sad to see Wanderlei getting knocked out like that, but what can we do, it happens with who is up there".

"Wanderlei was doing fine, motivated, thrilled, he wanted to fight really badly… We trained together before the fight and he was glad."

I see nobody is eager to jump on the Tito Ortiz bandwagon, even with Shogun's injuries becoming a career changer.

I'll tell you what, I think that if some of this more well known guys like Shogun, Ortiz, Rampage and even Cro-cop fight as if they are at the bottom, they'll win a lot more, these guys have more experience, and were dynamic as younger guys. Along with their age came conservation, with it, they may get ko'd every once in a while, but more often that not they will beat some of the newer guys I think. It isn't like the newer guys know things that the veterans don't.

Sorry and about this post, I just don't see ortiz taking shogun down enough and on the feet, ortiz's best chance is a flash K.O>
