Don't get me wrong i think sokky will be an amazing fighter and I have a lot of love for him. But the way everyone keeps talking about him like he's is better than Shogun and Lidell. I think it's a little to soon Shogun and Lidell have long lists of great fighters they have both beaten. Sokky has beaten two, albeit top 5 fighters, but only two fighters who are even known. It is possible that he is a one dimmsional fighter and can't defend himself on the ground. So while Im just as impressed as the rest of you with his start can we hold of anointing him the greatest thing in MMA history

The guy wrestles with team Quest, I m pretty sure he's decent on the ground. They actually brought him in for his Judo ability and ground skills - not his striking ability. His striking has been greatly improved due to Shawn Tompkins' presence in the camp, and as you can as, both Hendo and Sokky have scored some great KO victories over some great 205ers.
Now,

Though it may seem a lot of us are anointing him the greatest thing in MMA, its not really the case. I think enough praise has been given to the likes of Shogun and Chuck that its kinda redundant to mention how good they are. Also, this is a thread about Shogun

Gotta give the guy the respect he deserves, he earned it. You dont have to be the 'greatest thing in all of MMA' to be gettin' praise. Lot of us just very, very impressed.

When Shogun stomps fools faces, I get a funny feeling in my pants.

Usually, stomping faces is seen as cowardly or cheap, but when Shogun does it, it's manly. Shogun is in the Karo category for me, in that I always expect a fun as hell fight, and most of the time, I get one.

How about Karo - Shogun at 185 ?

That would be good times.

You think he can make 185 ? Mauricio, that is...

If he can, I d like to see him fight Paulo Filho. Not as entertaining as the aforementioned one though.

I doubt theyll risk Shogun if the idea is to bring him over to the UFC to challenge Liddel/Rampage for the title. Probably start feeding him some TUF guys to make all the casual fans gush over him. "Did you see that Shogun guy, he crushed Chris Leben whose like the greatest fighter ever ZOMGOSH!!!!"

How about he fights Tito Ortiz that would make him a huge star with all the mma noobs and also I'm sure he would love to beat Tito since Tito beat Wanderlei. And truthfully due to their styles I think Shogun would run through Tito since Tito and Rampage fight alike

Soko is 22 and people are all over his nuts, I don't see the big difference.

Babalu isn't a little boy either.

While I'm not sure the outcome will be the same, I don't think Shogun will destroy Babalu.
