New, 18 comments

Shark Fights has added to its lineup for its Sept. 11 show, booking a fight between UFC veterans Sokoudjou and Houston Alexander.

The promotion previously announced a light-heavyweight bout between Keith Jardine and Trevor Prangley for the event.

"We are very excited to have Sokoudjou vs. Houston Alexander as our co-main event on the Shark Fights 13 card," Shark Fights president Brent Medley said in a press release. "Both fighters have impressive knockouts on their records and have thrown down with a long list of tough, notable opponents. This will be no different. This is a very important fight for both fighters and a great opportunity for them to prove to the fans that they are still top contenders in the sport. Be prepared for a full on battle between Sokoudjou and Alexander on September 11."

Alexander is coming off a decision win against David Griffin at UFA 1 on June 11. He is 2-2 in his last four fights.

Sokoudjou has won two in a row since dropping two straight, defeating Joaquim Ferreira by TKO at Impact FC on July 10 and Dave Herman by disqualification May 14.
