Great odds on Siver. Gonna think about it some more but may have to make a big bet here.
The only fighter Sotiropoulos has fought that is really worth noting is Stevenson. Siver without doubt has the advantage standing and he is fairly strong/has decent tdd but Sotiropoulos definitely can submit him if it goes to the ground.
Why oh why didn't I follow my gut. I was really thinking about it but couldn't find tape on most of their recent fights so only put in a small bet...
