The 33 yr. old Aussie, George Sotiropoulos improves his record to 13-2 in MMA with his unanimous decision win over Kurt Pellegrino (16-5). The victory was close to being stolen when Pellegrino finished round three with a flurry of strikes from a flush right punch amd knee that put Sotiropoulos to the mat, before he was saved by the bell.
Judges scored the card in favor of Sotiropoulous: 30-27, 30-27, 29-28
Still unbeaten in the promotion, now with six straight wins in the UFC, it is hard to say Sotiropoulos is not advancing into title contention in the lightweight division.
Sotiropoulos carries notable victories over lightweights Joe Stevenson, Jason Dent, and George Roop in the UFC.
