  • 0:09 what a song?

  • LEGEND !

  • The best fighter

  • shoulda retired 10 years ago

  • Dude was a savage in his prime

  • Shogun in his prime was an absolute gift. That Grand Prix run in 05 was the kind of run they write for movies. He’s had a good stint in the UFC as a whole becoming their LHW champ and all but the older fans know that the UFC got Shogun as he was beginning to fade. Would have loved to have seen Shogun and Jones go at it in their respective primes. Would’ve been a much better, back and forth fight than what we got I think.

  • I miss PRIDE FC what a mood !

  • Shogun hadn t be helped with UFC rules who forbid stomp kicks !

  • Dang... injuries ruined one of the greatest talents ever...he still a legend though...

  • Shogun was the first one to conclusively end the UFC lhw jumble of title holders. As soon as he did the prodigy jones joined lol...

  • People dont know this guy was on another level once

  • Where is the tehuna kill

  • Shogun,uma lenda do MMA!

  • Why would you highlight a loss instead of honoring the wins in a timeline? There were so many other fights to showcase.

  • Shogun, Hunt and Saku gotta be the few guys that didn't take roids back in their Pride days.

  • Pride rules, rule!

  • Pls song

  • My fav Shogun moment was exposing the overrated Machida which the UFC portrayed him as the 'Welcome to the machida era) but Shogun showed everyone that when he is healthy, he is the best LHW, unfortunately, injuries were his worst enemy, I hope he gets one last run then retire in pride

  • Shogun this your final run. Would like to see a rematch with Anthony Smith, OSP and Gustafsson. TBH thought he lost against Lil Nog in the trilogy and Mauricio might be the most washed up but would love to see him avenge some of his losses against guys that are on the decline as well.

  • Shogun is my favorite fighter of all time. Hope he can get the w, would be so heartbroken if he takes another L.

  • No James Te Huna Knockout

  • Shugun Legend

  • Lol wtf Mario was there totally out of character. Early stoppage. Chuck was getting up.

  • Legend!

  • My first favorite fighter when I was a kid. What a legendary warrior

  • A LEGEND!!!

  • Legend

  • Holy fuck Shogun is amazing, the power🤯💯💯

  • His soccer kick was legend

  • I liked this guy’s muay thai skills

  • why dont ufc organization recruit fighters from all over the world afterall it helps to more popularize ufc organization all over the world in an easy way ! they should have open their sub branches all over the world✅which will make ufc a non defeatable no 1fighting org as well as business org .we want easy entry from Nepal .f

  • 3:23 "this Mauricio Shogun, 23 years of age, undefeated..." **Foreshadowing**

  • One of my fav MMA fighter of all time. hard to watch vs rampage. my other fav fighter of all time.

  • Was robbed in the first fight with Machida thanks to Cecils peoples.

  • Shogun é lenda 🏆🔥🇧🇷

  • For the casuals , specially those who never saw him , Shogun was the best fighter in the world when he was only 19 years old , I don't think Jones or any one could have been able to beat him back then.

  • Legend

  • I thought this was Cain Velasquez for years.

  • Don't forget he humiliated Mashida and survive TRT Henderson twice!

  • I started watching MMA because of Shogun. Legend

  • Brazilians under rules of all knees and soccer kicks allowed...

  • Legend

  • nah he ducked Romero and picks and chooses fights he thinks he can win. Forrest whooped him and Forrest was and is garbage.

  • The fight vs Henderson is still the best fight I’ve ever seen live. Should of put his knockout against Te-Huna in this too. Hope he knocks out Craig and then calls it a day. Legend War Shogun!!!

  • The new ufc is so boring compared to this . All the fighters fight the same and have PR teams

  • That beer commercial the official UFC beer with Amanda Nunez in the commercial it says that she's the only woman in her gym no she's not she's not a woman she is definitely not a woman I don't even think she's human

  • Pride rules ❤missed those days

  • His counter of machida was legendary

  • Y'all need to put some respect on Akira Shoji's name. That poor bastard got fed to the wolves on many occasions

  • put it back in with a punch, lol 4:55

  • foot to d butthole dat hurts 3:19

  • Face of a proud man 2:48

  • Si en la UFC valiera dar patadas en el suelo, Mauricio sería probablemente el número 1 del mundo.

  • Nothing between 2011 and 2018 in Shogun's timeline???

  • Loved this guy, what a beast.

  • They was so young

  • This man got submitted by Forrest Griffin and Chael Sonnen. Fake Brazilian

  • Real B M F

  • Let's go Mauricio! Win or lose, always my favorite fighter. Definitely needs to be in the HOF for UFC Champions.

  • Mario Yamasaki is the only man who ended many fighter’s careers by never being a fighter in combat sports history

  • One word: legend!

  • the last samurai

  • Epic fighter with epic walkout track :)


  • That is how good a 41 yo Dan Henderson was.

  • Pride was the best

  • This is why John Jones is the best ever. And some other things.

  • As a fan I want him to stop, his chin is gone and has been for a while. I want him to retire with hall of fame honors and be linked to the sport in some way, but hes had his share of physical punishment and then some.

  • @.the legend Shogun rua...👍👍


  • I feel the pride era and early ufc were the golden years of MMA, because back then there were still some unknown things when it comes to the styles of fighting but the fighters were already at a very high level.

  • I'll never forget that flying spinning kick against Ricardo Arona. Shogun was a real-life Samurai in his prime.

  • Welcome to the Machida Era Hum..

  • One of my favourite fighters when I first got into mma back in 2010 just wish he retires now hes not the same

  • Pride rules were dirty as hell man..

  • I miss the old school UFC days!

  • Sama Jon jones babak belur Shogun rua...wkwkkkk

  • One Name > Jon Jones

  • If he was still able to use gear I wonder how much better his record would be

  • Those Pride clips remind me on when I would be excited to receive the latest issue of Full Contact Fighter in the mail.

  • *SHOGUN and WANDERLEI are LEGENDS !!! I miss the good old Chute Boxe days.* *Shogun was robbed in first of the Machida and Hendo fights !!!*

  • His pride dominance is still one of the best runs/campaigns i've seen in MMA to date. What a legend.

  • He influenced my life more than any other fighter

  • 4:24 when Ubereem wasn't on horsemeat but still had a soft chin.

  • The Hendo fight was the GOAT fight

  • first fight he stomped his face in tf

  • Gaethje speaks about how strong Khabib is

  • Chute Boxe was frightening back in PRIDE

  • That hendo fight took 10 years of life off both fighters in one night

  • Beautiful video 🌹😍🤩

  • 6:43 I think shogun respects machida because he stopped before the ref even noticed

  • That legend

  • 5:18 if he dies he dies

  • Shogun finishes are so classic

  • Shogun vs Hendo was great

  • Shogun is a str8 Monster!!!

  • Were are truly privileged to still watch this man fight unfortunately his career is coming closer to and end but nevertheless a true warrior a real Shogun

  • Да он не плохой боец. Но против Джонса он выглядел ничтожеством.

  • 02:14 - what the eff was the ref waiting for?!?!?

  • Rua vs jones
