Sokoudjou went on Inside MMA last night and apologized for continuing to wail on Jan Nortje after the ref stepped in at DREAM 9. Some choice quotes from MMA Junkie:
“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,” Sokoudjou said. “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.”
There’s just something about a guy admitting he was a douchebag that seems to make everything okay. No one WANTS to be a douche or do douchy things, so it’s a perfect word to both acknowledge the lameness of one’s actions and at the same time make it clear that you regret what you did.
