LYOTO'S! been ridiculously consistent lately, smoking everyone that stepped in his path.

Sokky is coming off 2 awesome wins against 2 really good fighters. One of them being a Nogueira, and that Nogueira was dead after about 27 seconds. Dude finished a motherfreakin' Nogueira. He packs power, skill, and awesome dreadlocks.

Sokky's still a mystery, though, while LYOTO! has been proven to be as legit as they come. Gotta go with my man Machida.

I sure hope Machida pulls this off, and I think he will if he can avoid the strikes of Sokoudjou and come in with a great gameplan (which he most likely will).

Machida but SOkky only needs 1 punch to end, but Machida. Im guessing Machida will win in the third round at 5:00 by unanimous decision.

I like Sokky and want his stock to keep rising. Him vs. Shogun or Wandy intrigues me. But, right now, Lyoto is clearly the more proven of the two, and my money would be on him.

He's a more dynamic striker, trains with a better camp (for striking and BJJ) and he has more experience fighting in the octagon.

I think Sokky KO's him and I have reasons but Swick is fighting Burkman and I can't focus on writing about Sokky and Lyoto right now.

Lyoto will make Sokky look like a fool in this fight..
But i wonder what will happen if they engage in a war..
Standing up.. Lyoto has intelligent striking skills but Sokky is very dangerous.. he has one punch KO power..
On the ground is very interesting.. Judo vs BJJ/Somo.. should be great..

Rooting for..
HW - Brandon Vera
LHW - Lyoto Machida
MW - Martin Kampmann
WW - John Fitch
LW - Clay Guida
