George Sotiropoulos is one fight away from UFC world title fight in Sydney next February

Australian, George Sotiropoulos is apparently one win away from securing a UFC lightweight title fight in his home nation of Australia, adding “I see [Edgar’s] strengths and weaknesses, and I look at how my strengths and weaknesses match up against his and I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself.”

This from The Sydney Morning Herald:

“George Sotiropoulos is one fight away from setting up a dream UFC world title fight in Sydney next February. Geelong-born Sotiropoulos will face either B.J. Penn or Kenny Florian in a lightweight title eliminator in November, and victory would likely earn him a bout for the championship belt when the UFC returns to Sydney next year.”

“Frankie Edgar will take on Gray Maynard later this year. Sotiropoulos is confident of claiming the belt against whoever wins. “‘I see [Edgar’s] strengths and weaknesses, and I look at how my strengths and weaknesses match up against his and I’ve got a lot of confidence in myself.’”
