i'll be pulling hard for George, tho i like Stevenson too.

I think Joe has the advantage on paper, but we will have to wait till fight time, great matchup.

Man, I really like Sotiropoulos, but I don't see how he can take out Joe. Especially with Jackson behind him he's gonna have the gameplan to keep the fight standing.

George isn't ready for Stevensoon, why have they made this matchup? Stevenson is obviously a heavy favourite, I don't really see the benefit of this. They could give George a tougher test without throwing him in against someone on the level of Stevenson.

I say JS by UD.

Not sure Why Joe would take this fight.

It's a no-win situation for him. A win doesn't really help his ranking but a loss would drop him significantly.

That being said Joe should walk through this guy.

Surprised the UFC would throw an oppenent of Stevenson's calibur to George at an event in Australia.

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.
