I hope that it's as swank as his striking and TD defense. I love me some Sokky, and the guy hits like a train going 1000 mph.

Sokky!
Actually 2 top 5 LHWs

Exclamation

Sokoudjou!
is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I have been on his bandwagon since 2-24-07. Sokoudjou rules. If he is smart, he should'nt fight for anything less than 100,00 grand. He is a STAR.

I would have thought it was the other way around. I must have watched his first fight like 10 times and I still don't understand how he put Nog to sleep with that punch, it looked like it had no power behind it.

I don't understand how he went from losing to some nobody (who lost to Ed Herman) via TKO early in the 1st round, to KOing two top 10 light heavyweights all within a six month gap. I am so conflicted. I don't know whether this guy is the real deal or just had 2 consecutive flukes. Can someone really improve that much within 6 months? (Although the way he stuffed Arona's takedown was "swank.")

After he takes care of Rampage we'll just have to see, because they'll get their chances eventually.

A lotof people haven't proven they can beat Liddell, so you can't just throw that assumption around.

Top5 Fav. Fighters
1-Wanderlei Silva
2-Shogun Rua
3-Brandon Vera
4-Andrei Arlovski
5-Nick Diaz

show me one right or left, straight or hook that he MEANS to throw. unfortuntately, his fights don't last long enough to even make it to that point.

his takedown defense is more solid than I'd expect from even a judo expert.

his KO's are BIZZARE no matter what he says was intentional, both from low, with either hand.

WEIRD!

Who gives a shit if they're weird. I honestly think that Sokoudjou could become one of the best in the sport (am I a little bit too far on the bandwagon?). As I've said before, I think what is even more impressive than his killer hands are those leg kicks. Please...give me a Sokko vs. Shogun.

I dont think theres any question that he already IS one of the best in the sport. He just KOd two top 5 LHWs like they were nothing. Thats enough for me.

I think we'd all like Sokky vs Shogun to happen. Though, Hendo vs Shogun for the title should happen(I really don't know where Zuffa is going to stick Dan). I love Shogun more than Sokky, but I wouldn't complain if Sokky wins. Geez, I want this fight to happen.
