Sokoudjou admits he should have stopped...According to MMAjunkie.com, "UFC and PRIDE veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou's (6-4) actions certainly warranted some discussion. Sokoudjou delivered several ground-and-pound blows to opponent Jan Nortje (2-6) well after the referee had attempted to halt the contest.
On Friday's edition of HDNet's "Inside MMA," Sokoudjou admitted his behavior was out of line.
"There is no bad blood," Sokoudjou said. "Actually, [Nortje] is a really cool guy. We met at the bus on the way to the hotel. We were always nice to each other.
"It's just one of those moments where – you know I lost two fights in a row, and I was in a state where I told myself, 'There's no way I can lose this fight.'"
Nice to have an individual man up to his mistakes for a change.
