Gegard Mousasi Won't Underestimate Sokoudjou, Open to Henderson Fight

Gegard MousasiCHICAGO -- While some MMA fans and pundits have proclaimed that Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou doesn't have what it takes to upset Gegard Mousasi on Saturday night, the current Strikeforce light heavyweight champion isn't buying into that notion. Mousasi clearly remembers Sokoudjou's past triumphs over Antonio Rogerio Noguiera and Ricardo Arona in PRIDE, and is intent on not allowing "The African Assassin" to pull off the same kind of magic on CBS this weekend.

FanHouse spoke to Mousasi on Wednesday about the match-up, his newfound fame in America, and a potential fight against free agent Dan Henderson. The full video interview is below.
