Shogun Ignores His Family’s Plea To Retire

Shogun Rua has one of the longest and most storied careers in MMA. From being the Pride Grand Prix champion in 2005 to becoming a UFC champion in 2010, Shogun Rua isn’t ready to put an end to his 12-year MMA career just yet.

He spoke on a Brazilian TV program:

“My mother asks me ‘you really have to fight?’, and I say that’s my job, mom.”

“I do this for 13 years. Every month, my wife and my mother meet and try to make me stop (fighting), but I tell them that’s what I love to do.”

It was recently announced that Shogun would face Jimi Manuwa in Brazil in November. Prior to that he lost a rematch to Dan Henderson via TKO, during which he also suffered a broken nose.

Do you think Shogun’s career is coming to an end?
