I hope this rumor is true that Sokoudjou is coming to the ufc cause Sokoudjou is a bad man. Who should Sokoudjou fight first in the ufc? and how do u think he will fare in the cage? will the layoff hurt him?

how bout Sokoudjou vs. jardine or machida or maybe even tito?

or Sokoudjou vs. james irvin


please give me ur thoughts of this rumor

good news if true.

i think it's more likely they'll throw someone like Irvin at him as opposed to your other picks. Might wanna build him up a bit.

i hope its true, but who knows, this guy has been doing a lot more talking than fighting lately and i wish it was the other way around. if i had to pick an opponent for him id say houston alexander(although that wont happen in december) they both have had very similar "coming out" parties since entering major organizations and both like to bang. i dunno if irvin is even healthy yet after the fight with silva, so i doubt its him. if he does come im guessing it will be a b/c level fighter that he gets as a first opponent. maybe bonnar?

irvin would be a good first match for him, he could showcase a highlight reel knockout because irvin is not a top lhw. after he gets by irvin give him a test in a top 10 lhw. i dont care who it is because no matter who he fights in the top 10 it will be a highly anticipated fight.

I think cowcatcher said it... The most intriguing fight would be with Houston Alexander... It could be for like the "Breakout Fighter of the Year" trophy or something...

But the first name that popped into my head, was Kazuhiro Nakamura... I don't know how long he ended up being suspended for, but it seems like Silva likes the judo / judo matchups... And this would more than likely be an interesting fight, since Nak is so damn hard to finish...

Ohhhh, maybe they could set him up a fight with Lambert.??? After his immpressive win against Babalu... It'd be a perfect fight

MMAJunkie throws every possible rumor out, and then claims insider status when they are right.



Oh, and Irvin is out at least 6 months from the injury.

Dont mistake the imposters for the originals... The JT War Wagon is THE ORIGINAL War Wagon.

Not too much to understand. We support JT in wins, losses, draws, no contests, whatever...

We are firm believers that you are a fan of a fighter in good times and bad... An ideal that honestly I wish the rest of the MMA fan kingdom would strive for.

Too much nuthuggery going on. We are, in essence, the anti-nut huggery brigade.

Unless you are talking JT... Then hug to your heart's content.

ahhh i agree with ya there d00d....

nice.

Soko is a beast, but Machida is a ghost; he's impossible to hit. Machida UD.

Your a funny guy.. I wish JT all the best, but he definitely isn't becoming champ anytime soon.

Sokoudjou to Face Machida at UFC 79


Sokoudjou to Face Machida at UFC 79Thursday, November 15, 2007
Adding to the depth of its light heavyweight talent pool, the UFC on Thursday announced the signing of Team Quest's Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (Pictures), who will make his Octagon debut against undefeated Ryoto Machida (Pictures) at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on December 29.

The 23-year-old Cameroon native will enter the contest on the heels of two big wins over Brazilian Top Team fighters Anotnio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona (Pictures) earlier this year. Sokoudjou's MMA record stands at 4-1-0.

Machida, 29, has an unblemished record in 11 bouts and is 3-0 in the UFC with wins over Sam Hoger (Pictures), David Heath (Pictures) and Japanese judoka Kazuhiro Nakamura (Pictures).

I would like to know what soko's being paid. He scoffed at 20k per, wondering what they settled on.

machida vs sokoudjou, awesome fight, machida will take it.
machida knows how to win fights, he is not the most exciting but knows what to do to leave an impression on the judges minds for the scorecards.
