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 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.
