I'm not convinced Soti is a title contender, but I'm sure as his game evolves, his ranking will rise. He got beat tonight pretty clearly, but styles do make fights. He really, really needs to work on his wrestling and takedowns. I don't think Siver's TDD was as incredible as Soti's TD attempts were terrible.

Styles make fights!
This was the perfect Striker vs Grappler fight.
When 2 different fighting styles meat, the winner is the one who imposes his style against the other. perfect example in this fight.
As crazy as it sounds, imo Sotiropoulus has the more technical striking. It wasn't like Siver dominated the stand-up like Anderson did against Maia. Soti was in there all the time. But, like every grappler, taking the fight to the ground is a must. Siver knew that was coming and let's be honest: those TD attempts were pretty bad. They may work against a weak striker or another grappler, but Siver is a beast. that guy is built like a TANK: compact, strong.
He waited for the chance and punished Sotiropoulus.
But what i liked about Siver was his game plan execution. He had Soti in big trouble 3-4 times in the 1st and sent him down 2 times. He followed him to the ground trying to do some GnP, but when he saw Soti is trying to pull guard he gave up on the idea of GnP and chose to fight on the feet. That was brilliant! Shows Siver has matured as a fighter a lot!

I wouldn't say his TDD is incredible.
It was more the case of Sotiropoulus' weak TD attempts. All his attempts were going for the single if i'm not mistaking. He almost succeded in the first but Siver showed great balance and composure.

Agreed...dude is a mountain. Born is Russia, fine tuning in Germany! Sounds great!

I still think a wreslter like Sherk or Maynard would cause him problems.
And/or a strong/fast striker like Guillard!
But now that he won this, he has a lor of momentum.
I think he is one win away from the title shot.

Two possible opponents for him imo:

If Miller beats Shalorus, i think he will fight Siver for the next title shot.
If he loses, Siver might get the winner of Guida-Pettis for the next shot.

man soti needs to work on his strength training, he would've done alot better if siver wasn't able to muscle his way out of everything when they got close.


even though he lost, it was an awesome day at acer arena!

Soti really dissapointed me tonight. I taught this kid was a future champ but now i think he has to retool everything.

you guys are fooking crazy soti won rounds 2 and 3 haters, i saw it live and on a mainevent replay, soti was hittting clearer better and more strikes the last 2 rounds, all this shows is that soti needs wrestling help, siver is one dimensional because all he can do is sprawl and brawl, and soti got robber by idiot judges, also how on earth do you score a 30-28 match? for that to work soti would have to win 1 round and siver would have to win all 3 at the same time, confused? you should be

one of the rounds is considered a draw?

Wow. I predicted Siver by KO but I would never have thought that he would win that fight if it went to a decision. Also kudos to the judge who scored it 30-28 because that's how I scored it. Must have been a kickboxing judge (alhtough then round 1 would have been 10-8). Round 1 was 10-9 at least, round 2 was close so I scored it 10-10 and the last round was another clear 10-9 for Siver. He really turned it up again with the combination after he slowed down a bit in round 2.

Now bring on some wrestler and let's see if he's actually ready for the title shot.
