Ninja Rua: The First Knee and Kick Took Shogun's Gas Away

This Fan Post was promoted to the front page by Nick Thomas.

Mauricio Shogun Rua's brother, Murilo, reveals that the fight against Jon Jones was over in first minute in an interview with Tatame.com: (translated by Orcus)
"Yes, I was very surprised with (Jones’) game, Shogun trained a lot, Jones was able to neutralize my brother’s game, I think he studied Shogun’s game a lot, so congrats to him. Shogun now needs to go back to Brazil and analyze the fight, see what went wrong in the fight and go from there, ball forward."

"I think (Jones) has a brilliant future ahead of him, he’s a very young athlete, but in this weight class I think it’s very hard… people don’t seem to be able to keep the title for more than one fight. Everyone wins and then loses the belt so it’s a very tough weight class and there are a lot of great fighters, so we’ll see, he’s a young guy and will stay strong going forward, but Shogun will be able to make a strong come back, for sure."

"I think (what went wrong during the fight) was that the very first strikes Jones landed on Shogun, that knee and the head kick, may have taken his gas away."

Shogun tweeted yesterday:

"hey guys, thanks for the support, I will dedicate myself more and come back stronger"
