“What I always say is that Shogun is always two fights away from a title shot. No matter what happens, he won maybe the biggest Pride Grand Prix, is a former UFC champion and fans love his style. I say this potentially. Everything depends on the circumstances, the fighters’ injuries, the calendar, the champion being active, so there are a lot of subjective aspects. But he would do at most three fights before a title shot. However, we can’t think about it right now because he has a bout coming.”
In a recent interview with Brazil’s Combate.com, Eduardo Alonso, ‘Shogun’s’ Manager, discussed the fighting future of the former UFC champion.
