Sokoudjou Wants To Fight “Shogun”

“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.

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.”

— UFC Light Heavyweight Rameau Sokoudjou tells of his wish to fight Mauricio “Shogun” Rua once Rua returns from a knee injury. “Shogun”, however, is expected to face Chuck Liddell once both are back in fighting shape.
