It's an awesome match up regardless.

Well to tell u the truth i dont know exactly how good George's ground game is, ive seen some of his fights, like with Aoki, and showed great Sub D, until the nut cracking hit, but i know that Joe focuses on his ground game mostly...

I do remember him being introduced into the ufc as a striker i believe, but i think he has been meanly focusing on his ground non stop ever since around the time if memory servers me right....

im putting all my creds on George lol mostly because of these odds on here

Georges ground game is GOOD, trust me on that. He has taken on some of BJJs best in grappling and his performances are no shame.

He began Martial Arts with BJJ and it is his best weapon.

Think Lauzon' best chance is just coming out hard, scrapping and making this a dog fight. Other than that, Soti is more skilled in grappling and more technical on his feet.

I'm betting on Soti for this one.

Soti by kimura in round 2!

Quote:
Round 1 - Tonight's big lightweight fight is underway with referee Marc Fennel in charge. Both fighters swing, though nothing substantial lands. The fighters tie up and then reset. Lauzon gets through a right. Lauzon moves in, corrals Sotiropoulos, and looks for the takedown with a front head lock, but he doesn't have the position and gives it up. The fighters again tie up and then reset. Sotiropoulos shoots, but Lauzon stuffs it, and they break from the clinch. Sotiropoulos shoots and puts Lauzon against the cage, and Lauzon rains downward elbows as punishment. Sotiropoulos still clinches with him against the cage, and the fighters battle for position before breaking and resetting. Lauzon grabs a Muay Thai clinch but lets it go. The fighters swing from distance, but neither can connect. Sotiropoulos shoots, but Lauzon collapses on top of him. Sotiropoulos reverses, but Lauzon does the same and takes top position during a scramble. Lauzon stands over Sotiropoulos, who grabs a single leg to work his way back to his feet. He maintains the hold and takes Lauzon to the mat. Lauzon kneels, and Sotiropoulos looks to take his back before pulling him to his back and holding him down from north-south position. Sotiropoulos delivers a downward elbow to the gut, but Lauzon ties him up before Sotiropoulos hops into mount. Lauzon, though, bucks him off just before the round ends. It's a strategic and action-packed first round, and in a close one, MMAjunkie.com scores it 10-9 for Lauzon.

Round 2 - The fighters let the hands fly to open the second, but nothing much lands. Sotiropoulos shoots, but Lauzon initially stuffs it and tries to maintain his balance against the fence. The fighters remain tied up, and Lauzon hops on one leg and avoids the takedown before they separate and reset. Sotiropoulos lands a combo and finishes it with a nice shot to the body. Sotiropoulos grabs the Muay Thai clinch and lands some nice elbows to the body. The fighters scramble and hit the mat, and Sotiropoulos lands in top position after Lauzon's failed armbar. Sotiropoulos works for position and tries to grab an armbar, but Lauzon aptly defends. Sotiropoulos remains in top position and return to north-south position, snatches an arm, and torques the kimura to force the tap-out from Lauzon. George Sotiropoulos def. Joe Lauzon via submission (kimura) - Round 2, 2:43
