UFC Quick Quote: Win or lose, it's all about respect

I used to have a lot of respect for [Machida] until he said that so I want to get back in there and fight him again. It kind of pissed me off, but this is the sport and you know you've got to respect people. You can't just come up and disrespect people. You can go home with a win or a loss but you at least have to respect people. That's not right. I used to have a lot of respect for the him and now I'm just not cool with the guy.

-- "The African Assassin" Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou tells Jarry Park that he's doesn't appreciate the post-fight comments from Lyoto Machida (who referred to himself as the "Assassin Killer") following his submission loss to the Brazilian enigma at UFC 79 back in December. Imagine how upset he'd be had he lost to someone like Tito Ortiz instead.
