Ninja Rua: The first knee and kick caused Shogun to gas

by Guilherme Cruz | source:

It’s hard to keep the belt on this weight class. Since Quinton Jackson nobody was able to defend the title, except for Lyoto, who was later beaten up by your brother. Do you think Jon Jones will keep this belt for long?

He has a bright future ahead of him, he’s young, he has a full stamina supply, he’s shinning, but on this weight division it’s pretty hard to evaluate because you can become a champion, but you can remain one after one fight, you losses it right away, but I’m sure my brother will train harder now and he’ll return better and he’ll win this belt again.

What do you think Shogun lacked in order to return to Brazil with the belt?

Actually, one of the first coups launched on him, a knee and a kick on his head, right on the beginning of the fight, finished his conditioning and it changed the course of the fight.
