Kurt Pellegrino: 'George Sotiropoulos knows he's a cheater'


Props: MMAWeekly


"I’m not stressed out. I’m not nervous. Why would I be nervous? I’ve grappled with the best grappler on the planet (Marcelo Garcia). I’ve seen everything. This is the best prepared person I’ve ever been. I just have a lot of confidence right now. I don’t need to cheat or find a loophole to make my game better. My game is where it is: no shirt, pair of fight shorts, let’s rock and roll. I don’t need neoprene or kneepads to help me win or get the edge. If that’s what he needs, fantastic; good for him. He knows he’s a cheater."

UFC 116 lightweight Kurt Pellegrino takes exception to the fancy "pants" George Sotiropoulos wore in his win over Joe Stevenson last February in Australia. "Batman" doesn't want to rely on anything but his skills when the two 155-pound contenders throw down on the main card of tonight's pay-per-view from Las Vegas. Will the Aussie be at a disadvantage without his customized wardrobe?
