"George is a monster with impressive wins over Kurt Pellegrino and Joe Stevenson. He has good boxing and REALLY slick Jiu-Jitsu. He uses a lot of rubber guard from the bottom and is absolutely relentless from the top with his passing. I think he is going to be bigger than me as well, as he was on The Ultimate Fighter at 170 before dropping down to 155. While I am sure I will be the underdog going into this one, I like how my skills match off with George’s. There has been talk about George getting a title shot in Australia if he wins his next fight, but I am going to throw a wrench in those plans. I’m the underdog, with an uphill battle coming and big plans for the other guy after he beats me… but I am good at ruining those kinds of plans. Getting some Deja Vu of the Jens Pulver fight camp already ... The UFC countdown show is coming out to film today… so you will hopefully get to see some of the stuff I have been doing."
Resurgent UFC Lightweight Joe Lauzon (via The Underground), fresh off a first round ass kicking over Gabe Ruediger in front of his Beantown Boys back at UFC 118, will be heading into his UFC 123 scrap against George Sotiropoulos on Nov. 20 in the suburbs of Detroit with bad intentions. Can the Aussie become 155-pound champ? Not if "J-Lau" can help it.
