Good match-up. Machida should take him past the first minute. I'm still on the fence about Soko, this will definitely make a believer out of me.

Is he the real deal or did lighting just strike twice? We'll def. find out with this one!

Call me crazy but I think Machida takes this based on octagon experience and improvment shown in every fight.

soko has fought in a cage before.. his most famous fight with glove texiera (which he lost...) im on the fence about this fight.. i want to see soko try to take this to the ground. you know he'll have a good gameplan coming from team quest. But machida is very impressive and if he can weather a storm or two, i see him technical striking getting the better of soko

This is a fight where I have no idea what will happen. Soko's got some very good judo, obviously power, but I love machida.

yeah i hate to get my hopes crushed by online rumors, butmy hopes are all ready high just reading how many articles there are about this.

even if this fight doesnt happen at 79 i am just glad to see soko in the UFC.

I Want Soko vs. Alexander
2, 2ko fighters that we arent sure about yet...
even though soko's knockouts were against tougher comp...

WAR SOKO!!!

awesome, machida wont be able to stick and move against soko, if he can he deserves a title shot.

gotta agree wholeheartedly, this is definitely the fight where i make my mind up, i think hes definitely marketable, hes well built, a good looking lad with a colourful personality ("ive fought wild animals") and by the looks of it excellent striking, id like to see more of his Judo though

That would be insane.Machida and Soko would make a better main event than Bisping/Evans IMO.You're probably right though.
