It's funny how one loss followed by one comment can completely crash a fighter's bandwagon. Before these 2 events, Sokoudjou was more or less dubbed the new savior of the lhw division.
For the record, I thought Machida's comment was disrespectful, especially considering he beat Sokoudjou with his Jiu-Jitsu, and not his Karate "prowess."
I used to be a pretty big fan of Machida, but since he's come to the UFC, in my opinion he has been less than impressive. He's won fights, and looked untouchable while doing it....but the thing is, in MMA, you have to make some contact sometimes. Machida is like Tim Sylvia minus the jab.
So he's elusive.....join the NFL, become a running back where that kind of thing is more practical and appreciated.
