That quote about him being violent had me dying. Goldberg sounded shocked by the fact that he was violent when he exclaimed it.

But what's the deal with calling him a "****ing dog?" What the hell is that supposed to mean? The man goes into a fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championships and actually, well, fights and he's a "****ing dog" because of it. I figured that was the whole idea. In my eyes that just makes him a ****in' fierce fighter.

Against any top notch fighter he will likely get soundly beaten, especially a ground fighter. He beats Alessio Sakara and everyone thinks he's the next big thing. Cool down people. He's no Sokoudjou.
You need to relax and re-read this:

So, SP, there is still plenty that is unknown about him in the octagon but I'll guarantee you this, it'll be goddam exciting whenever we find it out and that's what this express is all about.

Well, you might end up being correct. But, for now, I'm hyped about the guy since he's so damn exciting to watch. I'd love to see him achieve some serious success in the UFC.
Time will tell...

And Sokoudjou may not be what he is being cracked up to be.

Hell, he got KTFO by a VERRRy average fighter who got beat by Ed Herman.

the guy is a work in progress. He has two fantastic wins in his past two fights earlier this year against one great MMA fighter, and one very good mma fighter....both big KOs.

The guy has power for sure......but he still was KTFO by Glover Tiexiera, who is an average MMA fighter, one year ago. And he only has five MMA fights.

Too early to label him as the next big thang, with five fights and his actual record.

Frankly,...I think that Houston Alexander is a better overall prospect, and has proven more and shown less *****s in his armor....in the ring than Soko has.

You consider Ricardo Arona to be a top 5 LHW fighter?? I don't. Opinions I guess.

I do and did give credit for Soko's win over the usually durable and very versatile NOG.

Between the two, I think that Alexander has the greater striking and better chin.

Shogun not in top 5 LHW? What grass you smoking?

Waddaya mean "maybe not now'"? Hell, he never was a top 5 guy at that weight. Not now, not ever. When Ricardo Arona got starched by Soko,....he wasn't a top 5 LHW. That was less than six months ago.
