    For some reason, sokodjou popped in my head today. Dude looked like a killer for a half a year. Kod prime mini nog and arona. Had huge hype at the time, i want to say it was 2007 or 2008 without looking. Then his career fell of a cliff. Idk when he last fought honestly.

    Who comes to mind when you think of this thread topic?

    So far, Ngannou.

    He looked like a murderer before Stipe, then a murmur afterwards.

    I was expecting much more from Lando at this point in his career.
