Shogun Rua got submitted by Chael Sonnen Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 26 and his brother Ninja Rua had some comments to make about Shogun's tactics and training camp.

Funny I blame the loss on Shogun for tapping out.

Big Props to Sonnen for getting the submission

Shogun looked dehydrated, maybe he was sick or something.

Even in defeat, Shogun put up a better effort than Overeem.
It seems Overeem is dangerous for 3 minutes, then he turns in to a Barrel of Monkeys spunk !!

Overeem almost won his fight so I'm not to sure how you figure that. Shogun never mounted any real offense and gave up I disagree with you completely.

Did Shogun make an excuse? It looks like it's all Ninja doing the talking here.

Overeem wins that fight if other refs are in there. He unloaded on brownes head/arm like 20-25 times

Shogun needs to do a TOTAL REVAMP on pretty much everything.


He seems outdated to me

just my .02

Shogun has never changed. He's always been the same guy since his first days in Pride. He has zero takedown defense. Even Gono got him down repeatedly. Everyone he's ever fought that wanted him down got him down. He's an elite striker with no takedown defense and very overrated BJJ. The book was finally written in the UFC on how to beat him and now his glaring holes are being exposed.

Ill say I do feel Ninja may be onto something about his training. His cardio issues and lack of evolution of his skills stink of bad trainers/teammates. The guy is 31 yrs old and has never looked really "out of shape" IMO. Yet he gases like he should be on the biggest loser. So he either needs to go get his heart checked by a Dr or look at what's wrong with his camp.

His brother and trainers literally think this guy is G*d's gift to fighting, but the reality is, he never comes in the best shape he can be and he just got guillotined by a wrestler, lmao. So sad.......RIP Shogun.

After reading the article, Ninja does make some sense, I just hope there is some truth behind it because I expected a lot more than that outta him.

Yes he did unload shots, then When Browne got up and separated, Reem looked Ko'd on the feet before Browne even threw that kick. His hands were down, he was gassed and waiting for Browne to finish him off. Terrible cardio. Reem's steroid usage has caught up with his aging body !!

When i say Shogun done better, i mean he didnt gas inside 3 minutes like Reem did.
