Sokoudjou is coming off a TKO victory over Kazuhiro Nakamura at UFC 84 “Ill Will. He also holds a win over current UFC heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira’s little bro Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
TS: Yeah, I would love to fight that guy. I've tried to fight him ever since I fought in PRIDE and he's been ducking me. Shogun has been ducking me since the PRIDE days. Shogun's camp told me that to fight him, I had to fight Cyborg first. I told them I want to fight Shogun, not Cyborg, and then Pride went away and now he's in the UFC and he hasn't fought for a minute. I know he got injured for his last fight, but I think by the time I'm ready to fight again, hopefully he should be ready and will take the fight.
PC: I can already tell you what people are going to say. What would you do when Shogun gets you on the ground?
TS: Good luck to him trying to get me to the ground. I got my ass kicked once on the ground so you think I just went home and didn't do anything on the ground? I spent hours and hours fighting off of my back.
