LOL im not a hater, but i think people do overrate him, ok he beat Lil Nog and Arona fair and square but they are both BJJ guys with sub par striking and suspect chins, but this time he is fighting a pure striker with a great pedigree, and Soku himself did show his suspect chin in his loss to Glover so im VERY confident in not only Machida beathim in, but also getting his 1st stoppage in the UFC with a TKO in the 2nd

I think you might be not giving enough props to soku.... i mean arona is a beast in the ring, and soku dropped him. i hate how people on this site talk crap on your personal opinions so im not trying to do that at all... and i might not be giving machida the props he deserves but machida kinda just does enough to win the round, and soku comes out guns blazing, i see in there first big exchange soku gets the better of him and puts him down.
