Sokoudjou's MMA Loss May Be Machida's Gameplan

The MMA phenom who swept through Lil' Nog at Pride 33 then wasted Ricardo Arona at Pride 34 is set to take on undefeated (11-0) Lyoto Machida at UFC 79:Nemesis in Vegas on December 29th.

There hasn't been any buzz about the debut of "The African Assassin" in the UFC anywhere so I thought I would start some shit that others will eventually rip from me per usual :)

Short of his fights in Pride and the one MMA loss Sokoudjou suffered at the hands of Glover Teixeira at WEC 24: Full Force, I only have a Judo match against our favorite Armenian, Karo Parisyan who stated on a recent Inside MMA show that Sokoudjou is a very strong opponent.

Machida has been criticized by many for his unimpressive fighting style however, nobody can say shit about the quality of fighters that he has defeated along the way (Rich Franklin, B.J. Penn, Stephan Bonnar) as he rises in rank in the UFC Light Heavyweight division - 205 Lbs.

Here we have Lyoto Machida dismantling Rich Franklin marking the first loss of Franklin's MMA career.

I am on the fence with this fight at the moment although, it is fitting that Lyoto Machida and Karo Parisyan are mentioned in the same post because both know how to drag a fight out to a decision.

Predictions for UFC 79 coming to you next week... stay tuned!
