“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 [Evangelista] Cyborg [Santos] 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.”


Well, now he’s gone and done it. It was one thing to subtly call out “Shogun” on the UFC broadcast, but if the storied history of Chute Boxe in Pride has taught us anything it’s that accusing a Brazilian of ducking you is the quickest way to send him into a murderous rage. Who knows, it might just the motivation that the oft-injured Rua needs to get back in the Octagon. No way can he let this slide.

Shogun needs a tune up fight after being out so long. Feed him Soko!

Haha I dunno man Soko looked pretty sharp against Nakamura. Those body kicks were murderous. IMHO this has fight of the night/year written all over it if it happens.

Of course Soko wants Shogun because look what happened to Griffin after his win. Shogun isn't ducking anybody and that is pretty obvious IMO. He wants to fight Liddell and that was arranged. I think Soko is crying for attention cause his lost to Machida took away all his steam. Shogun is not the right place to start. He would get kneebarred in less than a minute. He might as well get on his knees and beg Dana for a title shot.

I don't know what the troll is for I just always wanted to use it.

YUP.......when I picked Forrest I was just praying for an upset ( and since this isn't for real money I figured what the hell? ) But in all honest the guy is a top 10 guy (if not 5) in my book easily....Soko....not even close...He's 5-2!!!!

I should go look up some of Shogun's old fights and watch them because I haven't watched that many for some reason, so assuming all the stories are true I think Shogun should come back and kick Soko's butt and then fight Chuck.

Sokoudjou also said in an interview I did with him a month or so ago, that he feels "Shogun may be a bit of a has been. but he hopes that he can come back and kick some ass.."

I hope this fight happens...it would be a good one for sure.
