    Functionally stronger? You mean he has better technique. Put his skills in Soa's body and you'd have a new Karelin.

    JDS is a good fighter. Eddie Sanchez isn't.

    Seems like a pretty good point.

    everyone brings up the cormier fight, but fighters can improve. what are people going to say when cormier gets his head punched in standing, that he is shit because he got beat by someone with a different skill set. ali is shit because frazier smashed him, don't add up.

    not saying he could but if he got cain down it would be finished extremely quickly. have anyone seen cain finish a fight with one punch on the ground. soa has finished nearly every fight by quick ko, people underestimate that factor, ever heard of mark hunt people never though he had the skills to win K1 and he crushed all opposition to win as a big underdog.

    On top of that, Soa is one of the most likable fighter around. I hope Soa continues to do well in UFC.

    Mark Hunt is a Pacific Islander and doesn't hit particularly hard. Please, whoever responds to this don't show me the X-ray of Struves broken jaw, a lot of people break jaws in fights. Many have even gone on to win despite a broken jaw.

    He will never be Champion. Would love to see him fight Mur.

    A little bit. Could be a good test for him though.

    Cain, JDS, Nelson, Browne, DC and other guys that demonstrate one punch knockout power.

    He's already done a lot better than I expected. What I can't get over is how everything he touches goes to sleep. I mean it looks like he's just touching guys with hammer fists and they go lifeless. It's actually pretty scary. I firmly believe he's one of the best guys from mount in the UFC. If you're under Soa you are having a bad time. He's had 10 tko finishes in a row! The guys power is disturbing.
