“It was 21 years of battle in my entire career. In the UFC alone, it was 16 years. I always got along well with my opponents, I always respected them and it was reciprocal. It was against the Jon Jones (the hardest fight). It was a fight in which I couldn't put my game into the fight. So it was even a little frustrating. Every victory is the best fight. But I would choose the two victories that gave me the world title, against Ricardo arona (at Pride) and against Lyoto (Machida). Against Lyoto is my favorite, because it gave me the UFC title”, said Shogun.


Throughout his brilliant professional career, Shogun accumulated a record of 27 wins, 14 losses and one draw, boasting notable triumphs over names such as Mark Coleman, Chuck Liddell, Forrest griffin e Rampage Jackson.

Shogun's entry into the UFC Hall of Fame takes place for the second time: now as a member of the 'Pioneers' wing, the veteran had already been immortalized in the 'Fights' Wing for his epic battle against Dan Henderson in 2011 at UFC 139.
