I can't wait for the other fights. But I'm interested to see how this move would go for Mousasi. While Soky hasn't looked good in his past fights, I still think he is a dangerous opponent. We'll see what happens.

I can't help but notice this is in the middle of the week. I know it's over sea's and all but damn, Tuesday/Wednesday is alittle extreme to be hosting a PPV.

Wouldn't it be something if Sokoudjou pulled this off. There is no doubt that he wants this to stay standing, he's is always demolished on the mat.

It would be something. I've gone into every fight looking for him to win, and it just didn't happen. He has such an intimidating presence lol, you almost expect him to always win.

I would love to see him win this, but I might just get disappointed again.

Sokky is getting submitted. He needs to stop fighting top guys and get more experience against average guys and help boost his W/L ratio.

Well, to be fair it wasn't his fault he KO'd 2 of the top guys at the time. He was brought in to be fed to them but turned the tides. Then I think he was submitted by Lyoto, KO'd Nakamura, pimp slapped by Cane and then submitted by Sobral.

Win or lose, that's an impressive resume for a guy who was brought in for cannon fodder.

I agree, he was a victim of his own success laying the whoop down on Lil Nog and Arona put him right up there. But since then he has made quite a few rookie errors so rather than continually losing to vets he would benefit from gaining some experience and W's by fighting some lower calibre competition in my opinion.

As he is still very young and is better than his W/L record suggests. By all means fight top guys in 2 years time after having 7 or 8 fights he can learn from and win the majority of.

i agree with this. As long as it doesnt break him mentally from losing i think Soko will have a pretty successful career down the road.But I also think he should leave his current team for not having enough since to spread out the fighting of vets.

I hope Sokoudjou wins the Super Hulk Grand Prix, winning that would give him a great confidence boost and would be great for his record.
