Soko by a vicous KO in round 1 or 2 if it goes past 2 it'll probably be Machida by ANOTHER decision.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Karo is ridiculously consistent, and always makes his fights entertaining. He usually provides us with some swank throws, and he likes to scrap. I dig the guy.

Lyoto's sort of the opposite. He's there not to scrap, he's there to not get hit and win. He's like an artist, and he makes every shot count. He's accurate, fast, and well-rounded. I really like watching him school fools.

I'm going with Machida in this fight, Sokky is very scary, but Machida is a friggin Ninja. The guy is so elusive and his striking is precise.

This will be a major test for both fighters.

Gotta go with Machida because for one, he beat two of my favorite fighters in Rog Nog and Arona. But also he is just so calm and collected in his fights and has been super consistent. I am thinking we see a little longer Silva/Alexander here.

I think this will be (call it corny) but this will be a true validation fight for Sokoudjou. He knocked off 2 top LHWs. If he can beat Machida and finish him. He deserves his spot in the top 10.

But being Machida is so crafty, elusive and boring, he may steal a Decision from Sokky.

But I'm saying TKO for Sokoudjou.
