Back when people were saying "Sokoudjou is the next big thing" after his wins over Lil Nog and Arona, I was that guy saying "What about Teixeira? He knocked Sokoudjou out in the first round not too long ago." Needless to say, he didn't get much recognition back then. Probably because he had trouble getting into the UFC. I've followed him for a long time and he's one of my favorite fighters today. That being said, I could easily see him getting a title shot in the near future, but him beating Jones is a different story. I will say that I don't think he'd be tentative, and would always be up in Jones' face. That right there would make this a fun fight because Jones doesn't really have quick one punch knock out power, or at least hasn't shown it so far. If I had to pick a winner though, it would have to be Jones. It's hard to pick against him at this point.

I hope to see this fight in the near future, but I don't at the same time because I'm a big fan of both fighters.
