    “For now I don’t have anything solid, I’m hoping to get a fight before the end of this year…. I would love to kick [Rampage’s] ass…. [Houston Alexander] is a pretty good striker, and I’m looking forward to facing him in a near future…. And I’ll be back not in the ring but in the cage DEC 29th in Vegas!”
    Coveted light heavyweight free agent Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou — who boasts impressive stoppages of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona — mentions in a recent interview that he is unsure of his next fight. Moments later he throws out December 29, which is the date for UFC 79: “Nemesis” at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Prior to these latest statements it was believed that the :African Assassin” was headed for the K-1 organization. It’s going to be very interesting to see how this situation unfolds.

    Machida is going to be so hard for anyone to beat, even with being undersized

    Machida won't play into that fight with Soko, as well he has been active where as Soko might have some ring rust.

    Machida's chin has been proven to weather storms, Soko's is questionable.

    It really is a good matchup and Machida is by no means in over his head.


    I dont see him winning this one though.

    I consulted my magic 8-ball. Asked it if Machida will come up with the flu on Dec. 28th.

    "It is certain"

    Yeah, by being as far away from the action as he can be
     
  21. he's there when it's his turn to punch, not there when his opponent is throwing leather.

    I love watching him fight.
