Sokoudjou to Face Desilets on theScore Fighting Series
Sokoudjou (11-8) is a UFC, Strikeforce and Pride veteran with notable wins over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Ricardo Arona. Born and raised in Cameroon, he moved to the United States in 2001 to pursue a career in judo. He currently trains out of San Diego with MMA icon Dan Henderson and other members of Team Quest. Known for incredible athleticism and trademark dreadlocks, Sokoudjou is a crowd favourite both inside and outside out the cage. As an homage to the many Photoshopped images of him on the Internet, Sokoudjou frequently wears a mask inspired by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1987 action move “Predator” during his walk-in.
Other confirmed match-ups include a battle between UFC veterans Joe “El Dirte” Doerksen and Luigi Fioravanti and a welterweight showdown between DREAM welterweight champion Marius Zaromskis and top Canadian prospect Jordan ‘Young Guns’ Mein. Top ranked Canadian fighters Antonio ‘Pato’ Carvalho and Adrian ‘The Bully’ Wooley are also scheduled on the card.
