UFC 127 Fight Card: This Event Is George Sotiropoulos' To Shine
UFC 127 Will Be George Sotiropoulos' Opportunity To Make Himself A Superstar
Three weeks ago at UFC 126, the world saw Jon Jones become a superstar with his dominant performance against Ryan Bader.
At UFC 127 this Saturday night, George Sotiropoulos has his chance to become the next superstar in the company when he takes on Dennis Siver in a lightweight fight.
Sotiropoulos has a career record of 14-2, including a 7-0 mark in UFC. He is one of the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighters in the lightweight division and probably the entire UFC. He has a great submission game, as evidenced by the eight submission victories he has in his career.
This fight with Siver will be the biggest fight in his seven year career. He has a chance to move into the very crowded lightweight championship title picture with a win in this fight.
Siver does pose some problems for Sotiropoulos. He is an excellent kick boxer, whose "special" move is the spinning back kick. He is skilled in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but not at the level of Sotiropoulos. If he is able to keep this fight standing, he will have a great chance to pull off the victory.
But Sotiropoulos has all the momentum going in his favor, he will be fighting in front of a hometown crowd (he is from Victoria, Australia). Like the Jon Jones fight with Ryan Bader, this will be the biggest moment of Sotiropoulos' career. Let's see if he can take this moment by the throat.
