Sokoudjou admits he was a douchebag

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.
