After two first round knockouts of top-ranked light heavyweights, could this relative newcomer be the next superstar in the world of mixed martial arts?

I think Sokoudjou will be a big name fighter in the future in MMA, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

Yeah he KO'ed Nogueira in 23 seconds in his fourth MMA fight. But if PRIDE has Nogueira and Sokoudjou fight in a rematch, I bet the fight goes on a lot longer than it did. Maybe Nogueira gets KO'ed again, but a lot later in the fight.

I've never really been a fan of Arona. In his 13 victories in MMA he's only stopped 5 people. Sure, two of those five people were Alistair Overeem and Kazushi Sakuraba. But Sakuraba is a lot smaller than Arona.

Anyway, Sokoudjou will be a force. He trains with a really good camp. But people know who he is now. I think people wil be a little bit more careful when fighting him.
