Shogun’s Camp Expecting a Ground Battle This Time Around Against Machida

(Hopefully the judges can decide who won, not just who didn’t lose enough this time around.)

According to Mauricio Rua‘s muay thai trainer, Andre "Dida" Amade, they are expecting Lyoto Machida to take the fight to the ground to avoid taking the amount of damage he took from Shogun the last time the two met.

In an interview with Sherdog, Amade, who imitated Machida’s karate style for sparring sessions with his fighter throughout his camp in Brazil, says he and the rest of Shogun’s coaches are betting the farm that Lyoto will rely heavily on his black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu to ensure he retains his title.

“For Lyoto it is not very good to stay standing. He knows that his karate is not going to defeat muay Thai. In my coach’s opinion, he will want to work his jiu-jitsu with Shogun. I think he will not fight muay Thai because he saw that in the last fight he was badly hurt and was not effective. So I think he will want to work his jiu-jitsu. We already have the strategy to beat Machida. In [the last] fight, we used a strategy for Shogun to kill Machida’s game and our tactics worked,” Amade said. “We just had not counted on the judges. Shogun is hungry for this fight, and we are already feeling the taste of the belt. Shogun shows in each training session the desire to beat Machida. I do not want to be in Machida’s shoes because Shogun will take this belt with his kicks.” ”

Now, I may be naive in thinking Dida may be way off in his assumption, but regardless if it happens or not, I hope to hell that Shogun brings more to the fight than leg kicks and a plan to neutralize Lyoto’s ground game or it will be a short night for him.

After nearly losing his belt in the last fight, you can bet Machida’s dad providing him with plenty of bamboo lashings encouragement to ensure he doesn’t fight to a decision Saturday night, so his game will have to be en pointe to take the belt from the champ this time around.

Holy crap, MMA fan fiction!!! This thing hasn't even hit mainstream and it's already jumping the shark.

Is that the one about the hooker with the dysentery?

I remember Shogun trying to take Kevin Randleman's leg home with him. I've heard Kevin was a good wrestler.

Last non-heavyweight title fight that saw a finish was Penn-Sanchez at 107 (Penn by brutal evisceration).

That's what happens when you try to tell Fedor how he's feeling.

Perhaps, El Guapo. Perhaps.

Ratel.. Sometimes when you win, you really lose. And sometimes when you lose, you really win. Case in point, MediumRare. Yes, he won our lil "CagePotato Idol" here, but can you really call somebody who eats spicy shit tacos a winner??

It's OK Ratel, you'll always be full of piss and vinegar in my book.
Ratel- May 7, 2010 at 1:11 pm
as if you dudes liked the shit story more than the absolute destruction of machida, who is for our purposes here the villain.

i put you in the cage, in his mind, feeling the agony as his body, mind, sou, sanityl and everything he ever believed in fell apart, and you +infinity a story about shit and an 8-ball of blow.

the only other place i've felt that ripped off was at work during employee evaluation season.

i have nothing.

Not to drop another turd in your punch bowl, but the spicy shit tacos never get you as high again as they do the first time. You just end up chasing the dragon (or would that be knocking them back with a shot of your own warm piss?), desperately seeking that state of ecstatic bliss that you glimpsed as you began molesting the neighbor's dog. I'm just trying to warn you because I don't want you to end up a hollow empty shell of a man, like me, sleep walking through your days, collecting cans and bottles with a rusty shopping cart, languidly languishing at some freeway entrance with a crudely scrawled cardboard sign that reads: "Will work for shit tacos".

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA You guys are straight comedy!!

Unless, of course, you're... y'know. In which case it would be a completely different type of comedy. One that makes me cringe at the thought. Nothing against gay Brazilian mma fans that post here, but... Ahhhh, nevermind.

Damn money, sounds like you had a shitty weekend. Your wife is probably right, if you're not going to film your crazy antics for the posterity of Youtube, maybe you really should stay away from the internets. There's just a bunch of liars, thieves, hucksters, vagabonds, and people of questionable moral fiber waiting to lead you astray down the path of fecal consumption.

"...he was found in the bathroom. Face down. In a pool of his own feces. The coroner report came back last night. He suffered a massive heart attack. Apparently it happened during an orgasm..."
Ratel- May 7, 2010 at 12:58 pm
No can do, Boss. Any material I have that involves a clit, licking or no, will always include a money shot. Sometimes as many as 2 or 3. Dozen.

So no, this isn't the place for that kind of filth since we all know I'll take it too far and probably get myself on some kind of federal "watch list" (again). So, no.

Some of my best work comes out in the bathroom, with the vent fan on full blast. But cage potato is definitely a solid deuce, if you can smell my rankings.

@ El Guapo

The spicy shit tacos did not go well at all. I just got out of hospital (and jail) this afternoon.

As predicted the turds were spicy as hell. I saved two. My wife made her famous guacamole with red onion and cliantro. I prepared them. My daughter vomitted just from smelling them. She's only 5 so I guess I can't blame her. She'll toughen up.

Anyway, it was very difficult to eat. It was horribly disgusting. I couldn't swallow a bite. I kept vomitting it up.

My friend once told me the girls from two-girls-one-cup must've been coked out of their mind. So I went and got an eightball and did several lines.

With the help of the coke and two thirds of a bottle of vodka, I didi it! I managed to eat most of one whole shit taco.

After that I'm not sure what happened. My wife says I tried to get the neighbors dog to eat the other shit taco and then tried to steal the dog - and was arressted. While in lockup apparently I became violently ill and was hospitalized.

Anyway, they pumped my stomach and my mother-in-law posted bail. My neighbors dog is okay and now I'm fine too. My daughter won't talk to me and my wife wants me to stop going on the internet.

@ Ratel

tell us the one about the two lesbian hookers and the clit lick wars.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm

*edit* ^^^ Wow! We both simultaneously posted piss jokes in caps lock. There is some kind of strange organic cosmic consciuosness manifesting itself through the feces, pussy, and ass jokes of the hallowed halls of the capricious Cageporktato.

yyyes, probably, the wife wants to go out there for...something. Who knows.

I want Ratel to read me a bedtime story

As if some of my best work comes out here, in a (premier) MMA comments forum.
