Pride Lightheavyweight and Middleweight Champ Calls Contract Insulting

Dan Henderson managed to sum up the UFC's contract offer to Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou in one word. That word - insulting. Sokoudjou is coming off two stunning knockouts of top PRIDE Light Heavyweight fighters Ricardo Arona and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. Both of these title contenders lasted a combined 2 minutes and 22 seconds in the ring with Sokoudjou

Henderson has been fielding contract offers for his Team Quest teammate due to his long experience in MMA. With regards to Dan's statement, Rameau stated "Dan Henderson and Ryan Parsons have been doing business for over ten years and they know what my value is in the fighting business. All I care about in the fight business is where I'm going to fight right now. I trust them to do what they think is best for me business-wise for me to make the most money out of my skills."

UFC is only one MMA promotion currently pursuing Sokoudjou. Both K-1, Bodog and EliteXC are actively pursing him to fight in their orgranizations. Reameau had signed a 4 fight contract with PRIDE. He completed 2 of those fights before UFC bought out PRIDE, leaving him as a free agent to field offers from any MMA organization.

Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou is still unsigned and will continue to field offers until he finds one that properly reflects his level of talent. Rumors have surfaced about a contract signing EliteXC but no official statement has been made. For now, we will have to wait to see this top talent fighter in a cage or ring.
