I think they should match Sokoudjou against a good striker first to see how he handles that. ..
Like lil Nog?
Lil Nog is the Brazilian boxing champ. One point that Josh Gross did make on the beatdown about Sokoudjou that I agree with. He pointed out that he looked great in the beginning of the the Teixera fight in the Wec, then he got hit, and looked bad and got beat . I've seen this fight and I agree, I would like to see him in a longer fight and see how he overcomes adversity. The problem, although it's really hard to think of quick impressive butt kicking as a problem, is that we haven't seen him get hurt and recover . Lil Nog was known for his chin, and that was a powerful shot he ate. I actually thought Lil Nog had the best chance at 205 of beating Chuck, anybody can get caught and this is still a fight I would like to see.Still, I think Chuck's chin is better, I think Chuck would eat Sokoudjous punch and drop him.Either way, I wouldn't mind seeing it, but I think he should fight Wandy next. If he beats Lil Nog, Arona, and Wandy in a row there is no way he shouldn't fight for at least one the Pride/UFC 205 belts IMO. As long as Hendo, his training partner is the Pride champ, that seems to point to him fighting Chuck.
