i honestly think he's just trying to get a win under his belt. He was supposed to be the second comming, but then suffered two back to back losses. He claims he wants the werdum rematch, and HW belt...but we will see what weight he likes/ stays at. People have been talkin about him dropping weight for a LONG time now...it'll be nice to see what happens ....
i just thought it was funny when he tried to say soukojou was ducking him, when he didnt take the fight. Therri then came back and said he was on vacation , and that it was vera who turned down a fight with machida, wanderlei, etc.
Wanderlei, Soukdjou and Dan Henderson - all opted not to take the fight with Vera. None of them thought they had enough time to prepare for this UFN. Vera was offered a fight with Machida which he turned down for the same reasons. No one wants to take a fight with Machida on a 6 week notice.
i think you read me wrong, i was just paraphrasing what i read Sokoudjou said in an interview. I have been reading all the back and forths about who was and wasn't fighting at the FN and why
I also dont blame him for not fighting machica. Its his first 205 fight , machida is a top ranked competitor, who noone wants to fight right now. etc. etc.
i just thought what vera said about Sokoudjou was funny.....im going to check for the interview
