Let's see any of the "Brock sucks" crowd acknowledge that his repeated serious illnesses had a massive impact on his fighting ability and career. Months spent on a sick bed instead of learning in the gym, followed by months spent simply trying to recover what was lost instead of training new skills.

Brock was apparently a moron when it came to training anyway, but it's plain idiotic to not acknowledge his illnesses and surgeries and the part they played in his career. He overcame an incredible number of obstacles in his short career, he showed incredible balls just to get in the cage and fight, he never ducked a challenge, and he overachieved in the cage. That's the truth of Brock. His career is to be applauded, not shit on by wankers.

Shogun should get more respect. He's a legend of the sport, and has several great victories along with a few embarrassing and one-sided defeats. And being a legend of the sport, he doesn't need the pathetic excuse-mongering that his nuthuggers come up with every time he loses.
