Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou on HDNets Inside MMA:

“There is no bad blood … Actually, [Nortje] is a really cool guy. We met at the bus on the way to the hotel. We were always nice to each other.

“It’s just one of those moments where — you know I lost two fights in a row, and I was in a state where I told myself, ‘There’s no way I can lose this fight.'”

“I got [Nortje] on the ground, just like I thought I would do, and I was pounding and I didn’t want to stop … But I should have stopped.”

“There’s no bad blood. He’s been nice. We’ve run into each other, and every time he’s always been a gentlemen. I feel like a douchebag doing it. I’m really sorry for it.” [MMAjunkie]

After easily getting the TKO victory Jan Nortje at Dream 9 “Super Hulk Tournament”, Sokoudjou refused to stop beating Nortje even as the referee was laying in between the two fighters. Nortje’s camp entered the ring and shuffle ensued between the two camps.

    i dont really see how hitting someone 8 times after the fight is stopped is cool when the other guy was nothing but nice to you.

    I guess, understand, the adrenaline must have gotten to him, all of his latest fights have been utter disappointments, it was do or die

    I agree with Dane's #2 post (can you believe that? wow.)…It's a punk bitch move to keep hitting someone. I don't care WHAT problems you have. As a professional, you stop when the fight is over. Especially that way. If they were both slugging it out at the end of a round, that's one thing to keep going. However, you already beat the guy and the ref comes in…just stop…what are you trying to prove? If I was big enough and good enough to fight Sokoudjou, I'd keep cranking the arm back until it snapped, then say "oops…I was under a lot of stress…sorry." Sokoudjou is better than that. But he apologized, so until he does something like that again, we have to give him the benefit of the doubt. If he does this again, then he never gets to tap out again, and it should be all bets are off…hahaha.
