With Keith Jardine and Trevor Prangley already signed on for the main event of the Texas-based Shark Fights' promotion Sept. 11 event, Shark Fights 13, another pair of high-profile fighters have agreed to fight on the card. Shark Fights officials today announced that UFC veterans Houston Alexander & Sokoudjou will meet in the co-main event. The full fight card for Shark Fights 13, which takes place at the Amarillo Civic Center in Amarillo, Texas, will be announced shortly.

I like the sound of that, should be an easy KO for Sokoudjou.

No. Sokoudjou's rocket speed ascension started in Pride FC with his two quick knockouts of Ricardo Arona and Lil Nog. Houston's kool aid drinking party started with his upset of Kieth Jardine and knockout of Alessio Sakara.

Both had hype trains built off of two upset knockout wins and both were quickly exposed. One was in Pride FC the other was in UFC. Hence the comparison and hence the irony

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.
