Mauricio Shogun recently lost to Forrest Griffin in one of
the biggest MMA upsets this year. Shogun lost and is eager to move on and
learn from his losses, but there is only one thing stopping him now.
According to earlier reports from his chute boxe academy, Shogun fought with an already injured knee.
Although his trainers told him not to fight, Shogun is the
type of person who wouldn’t back out from a fight even if he already agreed to
one. It looks like Shogun needed surgery on his knee all along and today
he will undergo this procedure. This is the news from tatame.com:
