I just saw a Brazilian show, and Shogun was there.

During the interview, he was asked exactly who was the most difficult and the easiest fight.
His response was:
hardest fight: Lil Nog
Easiest fight: his second fight, back in Brazil - Against Angelo Antonio

were you ever cast away because you are Brazilian:
Rua- There was once in japan, when I just started fighting there, My nickname was already shogun (the reason for the nickname was that he had a gi named shogun and that's where the nickname came from), and the japanese guy told him that after beating him, Mauricio would have to change the name. but Shogun won the fight and remained as such until now :)

Just thought you guys might like it
