Fans, if you missed the free chat session with former PRIDE light heavyweight star Sokoudjou, check out the entire transcript to see what he had to say about his future plans and much more. Answering questions directly from the fans, Sokoudjou talked about when we can expect to see him fighting again and who he'd like to be fighting next.

Damn he pretty much called everyone out in that, including Fedor. I like Soko, I like he knows what he wants, and he's not scared to let people know, kind of like how Vera was when he hit the stage. But its easy to do a lot of talking when right now he can't fight anyone. I would love to see him in the UFC, and he seems to be a pretty likeable guy.


LOL @ the Henderson vs him fighting.

This guy has gone crazy yes he has beaten 2 top 5 LHW but he has 4 wins

Soko turning up the heat!!!! From what I can tell he speaks what he thinks. I heard a Interview on Sirius with him and Dan Henderson and Dan said in a year Soko will be the best in the world.

I think it is ridiculous that he wont sign to the ufc unless he gets top talent.

Cro Cops first opponent- Sanchez a nobody
Big Nog- Herring3 not a top contender
Rampage- Eastman not a top contender
Shogun- Griffin not a top contender
and these fighters deserve to fight top competition before soko

All dana is doing is building soko up before he knocks out Bisping and Tito so it doesnt look like another houston alexander to the casual fan.

Just because his buddy Dan (a DOUBLE CHAMP) gets an immediate high profile fight doesnt mean he deserves one too.

Soko just sign and build your name up. Then get your big fights like everyone else.

I like soko but that kinda makes me mad.

wow, i like sokoudjou less and less every interview. He has no room to talk about fighting "nobodies" cuz thats exactly what he was a few months ago....a nobody who lost to Glover Texeira. I can't believe this asshole, he goes and disses Fedor almost every interview ive read from him. Fedor's standup sucks? Im sure every fighter Fedor has fought disagrees, especially cro cop.

I think if Zuffa advertised Soko knocking out Arona and lil' Nog,people would consider him a serious contender.He looked very impressive in both those very short fights.I can't wait to see him fight again.

I totally agree with Soko on that,there has been many people who have said how sloppy his standup is.I personally just think he is powerful and quick which in other words he has all the tools for a stand up game and it works alot but he is just SLOPPY as all hell!!!I know Frank trigg has also said it time and time again on pride fc on fox along with his partner who i cant stand.

soko is a very good fighter, but he isn't in line to fight fedor...at least not yet. he needs a few more wins in my opinion.
