Shane fought and beat some very tough dudes throughout his career, and I always kind of enjoyed his style of fighting.   His knockout over tough Thiago Tavares was also extremely awesome to see.

Incredible collegiate career I thought he would have had an easier transition and been a star, still a solid career.
