  1. Sean McManus says:

    pretty sure I scored the last round of Sokoudjou/Boughton for Boughton…Roy laid it on him that last round. Sokoudjou barely made it out of the cage he was that gassed and he pretty much collapsed on the stairs up to the cage and sat there for a minute or two. Reports surfaced after that he was dealing with a bout of pneumonia during his training camp.
