Dana White: If Sotiropolous Can Defeat Siver, He’ll Be In Line For a Title Shot

UFC President, Dana White has revealed that lightweight up-and-comer, George Sotiropolous could find himself in title contention if he manages to defeat Dennis Siver next weekend at UFC 127 in his own backyard of Sydney, Australia.

White, speaking during a recent conference call, said:

“If he can win and pull this fight out, he’s in the line for the title shot. There’s no doubt about it. This kid has been on a tear. He’s so incredibly exciting to watch. You know, a lot of people talk about standup wars. Well, I love jiu-jitsu wars, too, and this guy has been in a ton of them. He’s very exciting, very fun to watch and incredibly talented. And if he wins, he’s on his way.”

“You know, we created ‘TUF’ to find the new up-and-coming talent guys who hopefully can become world champion someday. You never know when you’re there watching them on the show, but you only hope.”
