Sokoudjou Looks to Become a World Champion in Bellator
Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.05.2014

- Sokoudjou recently spoke about reviving his MMA career with Bellator MMA. Here are the highlights…

On His PRIDE Days: "I had been training in MMA for about a year before I first fought in PRIDE. When I fought Nogueira and Arona, I had no idea who they were. They were just two opponents standing in front of me. I didn't have any idea what they had accomplished before I stepped in the ring with them. Everything was new to me at that point so I just went in there and did what I had to do."

On His Training: "My training was going really good back then, but at some point all of my training just fell apart and it really became a nightmare," Sokoudjou said. "I don't think it was a situation where I became less aggressive or less vicious when I'm competing. I just think that I was training all over the place with a lot if different people earlier in my career and I became a bit complacent later on."

On His Comeback: "I know what I have to do to get back to that point in my career," Sokoudjou said. "I have to do a lot more cross training and that's what I've been doing. I'm training at a lot of different gyms now. Gyms where I'm not comfortable. Gyms where my sparring partners don't care as much about me and are really trying to poke a hole in my head. I needed to take a step back and take myself out of my comfort zone and that's what I've done. I'm back and I'm ready to show the world what I'm capable of. I just want to put on some exciting fights for all the fans. I've trained really hard for this so I know it's going to be very exciting."

On Becoming a Champion in Bellator: "I want to win this fight to get into a tournament where I can earn my chance to become a world champion," Sokoudjou said. "I know I have the skills to become a world champion in the sport and now it's time to go out there and make it happen. I know in my heart that I have the skills to become a world champion and I'm not going to stop until I reach that goal. Every time I fight I always feel like I could have done better. I have to make sure I am better than I've ever been when I step inside that cage. I didn't come here to be a victim, so I have to be ready."
