Reports are coming in that Australian native, George Sotiropoulos (13-2) is only a fight away from a UFC lightweight title shot. This coming after six straight wins in the UFC, which is about the usual time for a shot. Also it is rumored that the UFC will be planning the title fight in Sydney, Australia, the hometown of Sotirpoulos.
If he can get past either B.J. Penn or Kenny “Kenflo” Florian in November, he is rumored to be next in line for the title shot against the winner of Frankie Edgar – Gray Maynard.
