If the UFC wants to build up their Australian fighters in the homeland, George is probably the best choice. Give him another Jason Dent calibur opponent for Australia, then throw him in with the contenders.
That would be nice, but the UFC doesnt feed anyone easy fights. Chuck Liddell is one of the most popular fighters in UFC histroy, his fights only got tougher as he lost. They would love to have George become a big star, but thats not how they do business. They will only turn someone into a huge name if they can win there fights.
