    I might have to pick Machida, damn elusive counter striker.

    I just see it as a good style match up for Lyoto.

    Soko is an agressive striker, Lyoto's counter-punching can be a problem for him. I'd try to take it to the ground and take Lyoto out of his game. I am excited.

    Can't wait for this one. Like Drag On says, Soko is just a beast.

    Agreed. This is a very tough fight for both fighters and will not be a walk inthe park.

    I think we will really see Machida's chin get tested like never before. and Soko's cardio and mental toughness.

    very pleased with this match up and very happy to see Soko in the UFC.

    They should have brought babalu back for this, or given him Jason Lambert.
    Sadly Machida doesnt have a big enough name to the masses, nor does Terry. And the odds of this being a lightning quick KO are nowhere near as strong as with Babs or Lamby.

    Who do you all think will be the favorite on the books? I think Machida would be the logical favorite, but i think the way people bet and all that they will have Soko as a solid favorite with a low payout for machida.
