Agreed. He did beat Shogun though. I would like to see a rematch. He is does ok because he is a big 205'er and can throw a punch. But you saw what happened when put in with a highly technical fighter such as Silva he got KO'd in 50 seconds. It is all about style matchups. Rua like to brawl and I think that is why he lost he was a little too aggressive against forrest. Machida and Silva are more defensive fighter's and are not good matchups for a guy like Griffen.
