UFC Releases Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou

Rameau Thierry SokoudjouThe UFC has released light heavyweight Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (5-3), according to reports.

Sokoudjou, who went just 1-2 in three fights in the UFC, joins Jorge Gurgel, Fabricio Werdum, Marcus Aurelio, and others on the list of under-performing fighters who have been cut by the promotion as it seeks to trim its burgeoning roster.

The 25-year-old Judo champion burst onto the MMA scene in 2007 with upset knockouts of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona, but fizzled in the UFC, sandwiching his lone win over Kuzuhiro Nakamura with losses to Lyoto Machida and Luiz Cane.
