UFC 140 Jones vs. Machida Results: What's Next for Igor Pokrajac

Adam OsterkampContributor IIIDecember 11, 2011

Igor Pokrajac made some quick work of his opponent Krzysztof Soszynski on Saturday night at UFC 140 in Toronto, Canada.

Pokrajac came out strong and finished Soszynski at just 0:35 of the first round. Pokrajac had some great striking that rocked Soszynski early on in the first. Pokrajac followed Soszynski to the ground and landed some great shots.

Soszynski was rocked hard and took a while to come back around.

Pokrajac certainly looked excellent tonight and, seeing as the fight was free for everyone to see, will mo doubt be a fighter many people are talking to.

Pokrajac’s record is 24-8 in his MMA career, but since coming to the UFC, he has gone 3-3, including his win tonight against Soszynski.

While tonight was a great highlight real worthy win for Pokrajac’s, we unfortunately didn’t get to see all aspects of his game.

That being said, Pokrajac deserves a step up in competition after his awesome and dominant performance tonight.

Two great match ups for Pokrajac would be rematches. One of those fights would be going up against Stephan Bonnar, who was the last man to defeat Pokrajac via decision. Bonnar himself is coming off of a win as well.

Another great match up might be with Vladimir Matyushenko, another man that Pokrajac lost to via decision as well. Matyushenko is also coming off a win.

Either one of these fights would be a great oppertunity for Pokrajac to prove that what happened with Soszynski wasn’t just a stroke of good luck, but the result of lots of hard work.
