The UFC website has confirmed, Thierry Sokoudjou will face Loyoto Machida at UFC 79 on December 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The “African Assasin” Thierry Sokoudjou (4-1) only made his MMA debut in 2006, but by midway of 2007 he had beaten two of PRIDES FC best light heavyweights Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona. His aggressive fighting style and athleticism will be a big addition to the already stacked UFC light heavyweight division.
