    1. I T

      My all time favorite fighter! Such a shame he has not looked good since UFC 104, when he was robbed against Machida. 2009 was the last time Shogun looked good and damn did he look amazing against Chuck (UFC 97) and Machida I (UFC 104). His movement, defense, and offense were just amazing those fights and imo those fights are the best Shogun ever looked even compared to Pride. Just technically on another level in those fights.

    2. Karamjeet Grewal

      This guy not good by today fighter standard. He made a name rack up easy win back in day fight tomato can in Pride. You call him Legend but today fighter all kill him. Not a top 10 fighter in today world. He was never good only over-rated.

Макияж выделяет костюмы, и никто не обращает внимания на то, что это люди шутят о частях животны. Вы так взволнованы изображениями, что все они черные

    4. Pete Melabianakis

      LEGEND !

    5. kenzo Boyka

      The best fighter

    6. Martin Latour

      shoulda retired 10 years ago

    7. Cody Cregger

      Dude was a savage in his prime

    8. Joshua Pak

      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.

    9. james howlett

      I miss PRIDE FC what a mood !

    10. james howlett

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

    11. Ali Chaudhry

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

    12. Loose Ozzy Political Punting

      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...

    13. Loose Ozzy Political Punting

      People dont know this guy was on another level once

    14. yeshua sage

      Where is the tehuna kill

    15. Carlos Henrique

      Shogun,uma lenda do MMA!

    16. Jester Sings

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

    17. Douche Monkey

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

    18. Selling Silverman

      Pride rules, rule!

    19. Hocine Neghza

      Pls song

    20. Mostafa El-Sayed

      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

    21. Douche Monkey

      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.

    22. El Shogun

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

    23. Lucas Pereira

      Shugun Legend

    24. BIGGYLUV

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

    25. Lucas Simões

      1. ReLevAnT thOuGhT !

      2. José Guilherme Rodrigues Monici

        Really .I agree .

    33. Monty Monty

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

    34. Wrenchettes

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

    35. jonnnyonion

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

    36. Daniel Silva

      Shogun é lenda 🏆🔥🇧🇷

    37. Tito Brozzi

      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.



    39. lucidsolutions

      I thought this was Cain Velasquez for years.

    40. djeeee911

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

    41. Dennis Reynolds

      I started watching MMA because of Shogun. Legend

    42. djeeee911

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

      1. José Guilherme Rodrigues Monici


    43. jassim wardi


    44. Mr.

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

      1. José Guilherme Rodrigues Monici


    45. Thomas Hilton

      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!!!

    46. AK 464

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

    47. MMA Shorts

      Pride rules ❤missed those days

    48. ShinjiIkariFTW

      His counter of machida was legendary

    49. R Q

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

    50. Matias Asconeguy Raco

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

      1. José Guilherme Rodrigues Monici

        Kkk .

    51. Matias Asconeguy Raco

      foot to d butthole dat hurts 3:19

    52. Matias Asconeguy Raco

      Face of a proud man 2:48

    53. Jose Luis Martin

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

    54. Camilo Caropreso

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

    55. Billy and Tater Outfitters

      Loved this guy, what a beast.

    56. Martin Korn

      They was so young

    57. Daniel

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

      1. José Guilherme Rodrigues Monici


    58. El Persa

      Real B M F

    59. UserFT

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

    60. Lil' Fire

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

    61. João Washington Nucas

      One word: legend!

    62. Ethan Sin

      the last samurai

    63. Marius Baranauskas

      Epic fighter with epic walkout track :)

    64. Asian Mcgee


    65. Tiago Lima

      That is how good a 41 yo Dan Henderson was.

    66. Tow B

      Pride was the best

    67. the fabulous four

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

    68. iTxip

      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.

    69. MA. VLOG

      @.the legend Shogun rua...👍👍

    70. Watch This

    71. Marko Sekulic

      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.

    72. Adam Brennan

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

    73. abonne toi pas

      Welcome to the Machida Era Hum..

    74. KankyKoo

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

    75. Kévin Legrain

      Pride rules were dirty as hell man..

    76. Kane

      I miss the old school UFC days!

    77. Mulyadi Kurniawan

      Sama Jon jones babak belur Shogun rua...wkwkkkk

    78. Jonas Pimf

      One Name > Jon Jones

    79. Ash Bash Sneakers

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

    80. Shawn Cahill

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

    81. cht469

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

    82. Julz Cdg

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

    83. Exploring the Ka with Ra Castaldo

      He influenced my life more than any other fighter

    84. Emilio Yap

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

    85. Alex Sutton

      The Hendo fight was the GOAT fight

    86. Risotto

      first fight he stomped his face in tf

    87. VDK Studios Gaethje speaks about how strong Khabib is

    88. Jeremy LeBlanc

      Chute Boxe was frightening back in PRIDE

    89. DannyBoy Bogdan

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

    90. 786 body fitness

      Beautiful video 🌹😍🤩

    91. Rudy Cordova

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

    92. bone

      That legend

    93. Alex Hoy

      5:18 if he dies he dies

    94. M.shadows

      Shogun finishes are so classic

    95. M.shadows

      Shogun vs Hendo was great

    96. BruteSportsTV

      Shogun is a str8 Monster!!!

    97. Ofelia Michel

      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

    98. MiՏᝨER ᗩᖇᖇᝪᗯ

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

    99. Username0123456789

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