To me it would be like considering Houston Alexander a top 10 LHW after his flash knockouts of Jardine and Sakara.
I cannot quantify the amount of fail in this post. It just isn't possible.

Comparing Rogerio and Arona to someone like Alessio Sakara is just....so....wrong.

No, this doesn't affect Machida's win against Sokky. Dude completely smoked the guy.

Sokky, my man, use your judo.
Man that's what I was thinking when I saw him start to gas. Take the dude down and try and catch your breath. He just slowly wilted on his feet and then got taken out- no bueno Soky.

A big win is a big win, especially during that time.

Cane took Sokodjou's power and then poured it on with some sound boxing. He's a solid fighter in a very deep divions. But as mentioned, I don't get why somebody as explosive and powerful as Sokoudjou doesn't use his judo skills. 2nd degree black belt.

People really do grasp at straws to discredit Machida. Both Rogerio and Arona were easily top 10 at the time Sokky beat him and with those wins he was top 10 as well. I would no longer rank him top 10 but that doesnt change where he was when Machida beat him.

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

Lol, Sokky didn't get outclassed at all, he beat up Cane for a while and gassed.

And if you didn't have Lil'Nog and Arona in your top ten back when Sokky beat them, you are retarded.
