I've got a feeling lightning won't strike twice....Sokoudjou will be a huge underdog yet again.

First they threw him to the wolves, now the lions? LOL
He's going to move to 3-2, unless lightning does indeed strike twice

I've always like the Arona fought, so Im looking fwd to him getting back in the ring. This should be a good fight if it gets past the 1st or 2nd minute. I predict Arona w/a TKO of some sort? I think Arona has more skills all around, plus he is an underated striker. His key to success will to get Sokoudjou to the ground I thinkg.

Souk is really atheletic and is great on the ground like Arona. I think Arona will take it but these days its so hard to judge bouts especially in PRIDE

That's awful match making, he should be fighting James Lee. Why put out a lit match like Sok and insult Arona at the same time?

I think Sok has the better legkicks. I just hope Arona keeps his chin down for once and doesn't get too cocky on the feet. He should look for the takedown as soon as the fight starts.

Arona should prob'ly have it, but I HOPE Sok shows some real skill... or that it looks like another lightning strike. I just don't like watching Ricardo fight (most of the time)

Sure! As soon as I got my millions from the next UFN and UFC 69 I'll make sure to wager with you.

btw. UFC should spread out their events a little better..
