On a recent Full Contact Fighter radio broadcast, Sokoudjou has stated that if he fights next in the UFC he wants to fight Tito Ortiz. If he fights next in Pride then he wants Shogun. Considering that it has been announced that Shogun will be fighting in the UFC (at UFC 76), it looks like if Sokoudjou is to get his wish he will need to come to the UFC!

Sokoudjou fights at light heavyweight and holds wins over Ricardo Arona and Big Nog's little brother (little Nog).

It's real easy to call someone out when you won't sign with the org. they are fighting in. He should sign then call them out otherwise......go fight cans in Bodog.

i'd like to see sokoudjou fight ortiz first and fight shogun after

i don't think Sokoudjou is at the level of either ortiz or shogun. he has to beat a few more guys before he can be considered on the level of ortiz and shogun. his first round loss to Teixeira doesn't help his case either.

I disagree, Soko is on/passed Tito's level.

Styles make fights maybe? I think Sok is still unproven. Not enough fights and people haven't really ahd a chance to disect his game. After a few more fights people will start to catch on and have gameplans for him.

He'd do well to fight Tito, but maybe not Shogun. I mean, Shogun is just bombastic.

Well styles might make fights but arona wen't the distance with fedor so he can't be a can thats easily exploited.

That's true but would you say that Fedor has KO power like Liddell has? I'm only suggesting the idea that it's easier to go the distance against someone that won't knock you out in one punch, not that Liddell is better than Fedor.

I see where your coming from, I think this fight would be good. Soko does need to prove himself more, but he has been impressive in his 2 pride fight you've gotta admit. I think tito would be a great test, shogun....it'd test his chin against knees lol.

another good LHW fighter to the UFC... hmmmmm

if that happens Dana should consider an UFC LHW GP
so the people can see that Chuck Liddell is nothing compared to all these guys.... I bet even Bisping can KO him.

tito would be crazy to take the sok fight imo. if he loses it would be a serious blow to his attempts at rejuvenating his career and if he wins he beat an up and comer that noone in the US knows anyways.

oh yeah, and chuck is still competitive and can beat anyone at any time

I really don't think he can beat rampage. It's more then just rampage being better then him, he just has his #.

First of all Soko is passed Tito's level, who has Tito beat in the last 3-4 years?? Cote, Belfort, Forrest, and of course Ken Shamrock. Soko in two fights has accomplished twice as much, knocking out Lil Nog and Arona. Arona is a better version of Tito, who rarely gets caught standing (more impressive Soko could do it) and with better BJJ. Arona would school Tito in a fight. Lil Nog is in a different league then Tito, he got caught, he'd never been stopped before and once again it just proves the skill Soko has.

Chuck has more power then Fedor?? LOL I don't think so. Fedor demolishes monsters like Goodridge and Zulu and knocked over CC with a forearm. Rampage walked through Chuck's punches continually, Fedor would destroy him. He hits way harder with a lot more velocity, but Chuck is pinpoint accurate and strong himself. Either way, Chuck's days are numbered. I won't be surprised if Jardine KOs Chuck, remember I said that, and afterwards Chuck has to fight Silva, this is his retirement tour.

If Sokoudjou fights the Tito we've seen recenlty he has it, I believe he can rely on his striking for Shogun as well, but no doubt Shogun is a better and more well rounded striker than Sokoudjou.

No, Tito would knock Sok out in the first round.

Arguing about something that will never happen...Even if soko comes to the UFC tito's got one fight left and then he'll be gone. I think soko would win by KO round 1, and lose to shogun round two via flying knee.

Two fights against two top 10 guys, ending the exact same way is not luck.
