UFC 79: Nemesis - Some thoughts

[B]Lyoto vs Sokoudjou:[/B] First of all, that was one of the coolest UFC entrances I've seen in a while with Sokky's predator helmet. Too bad he couldn't have been a predator in the cage. For a guy who had a pretty good year by KOing 2 top 10 fighters, he got his ass owned my Machida. It seems like all he knew was how to punch, and when on the ground he looked lost and confused. Machida on the other hand, looked like a top calibur fighter that many people says he is. He stayed focused and created the angles to land some solid punches to finish the fight.
[B]Silva vs Liddell:[/B] This fight was great, both put everything on the line and the best man won. I would like to see a rematch, maybe while the title is on the line. My only concern is Silva's lack of knees or kicking for that matter. Jardine broke down Chuck with kicks to win, and I thought Silva would at least try the same thing.
[B]GSP vs Hughes:[/B] I'm a Matt Hughes fan but even I knew he wasn't going to beat GSP. I thought GSP's speech after the fight about wanting Serra's belt and not the one being handed to him by the UFC was great. I can't wait for GSP vs Serra, so we can crown GSP as the official UFC WW champion.
