"I have to be well trained and focused to face him, and that is what I'm doing. Wanderlei is a great friend. I was in
for a week and we spoke a lot. He said that Liddell is a good fighter, beats heavy, but said that, if I go to the fight focused and with gas, I will win this fight", Las Vegas
Shogun Rua speaking with Tatame.com about his upcoming fight against Chuck Liddell at UFC 97. This is going to be a tough fight for Shogun if he comes in this this matchup like he did against Mark Coleman. I know Liddell's stock isn't the same as it once was, but a gassed Shogun would not stand a chance here. Hopefully, he's been able to train properly to address his cardio and conditioning issues.
