I'm just absolutley gutted that I didn't place a bet on him, i'm not going to be encouraging any typical silly hype until we have seen the guy fight a few more times and gets a few rounds under his belt.

I'm afaid Pride might throw him against another top guy, instead of giving him a chance to improve. I still think this was a fluke, but only time will tell. He obviuosly has great physical skills, but throwing him in against any of thier highly regarded LHVY's except Overeem( who I think is overated and should fight at HVY) would be a waste IMO. A fight against Lil Nog again, Shogun, Nakamura, Arona or Wandy would be a bad idea to me.I say give the guy a chance to grow before throwing him into the fire.

I dont think it was a fluke. He was tossing leg kicks that were connecting and set up that hook beautifully. I think lil nog didnt respect his talent. Im hesitant to say it was a fluke because then one could say all KO's are flukes. IMO!

I agree, I am scared they will throw him in with Shogun. After taking a beating from Shogun he may wanna hang em up jk haha. Who knows what they will do with them though? Pride may not even know.

i wouldnt be surprised if his next fight is with wanderlei. sokoudjou trains with team quest so he'll know how to clinch and wont be like a fish out of water on the ground

I'd expect them to try to build him up as a star. He's huge so has a lot of the appeal that Randleman and Bob Sapp have, and he also took out one of the top ranked fighters in his division. I wouldn't be surprised to see them match him against a few cans with different styles so he can feel out his weaknesses without too much risk and then start setting him up with tougher fights.
