Sokoudjou has stepped into the UFC octagon and PRIDE rings with some of the toughest names in the sport. The nine year veteran possesses wins and losses with the likes of Glover Teixeira, Ricardo Arona, Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi.
He may have faced his greatest opponent at a recent card in the form of an incompetent referee. The official let the fight go on even after Sokoudjou was clearly unfit to continue his bout with Paul Buentello. In the end, it was Buentello who had his hands raised in victory.
