I really don't see how Siver wins. Power shot or kick is perhaps the only way.

Any other time when Siver is o teh prelims, no one will talk as if he is legit. Yet when he makes a main card against a relevant fighter, he is all of a sudden a threat. Don't believe the hype, this isn't a close match up.

Soti won't be out-struck, and will eventually sub him. I'll go 2nd round armbar.

Striking. It is pretty clear-cut.

Siver is definitely the much superior striker.

Siver has the striking advantage and I think his grappling is under rated.

Soti will probably get it to the matt and sub him, but i'm still not impressed with soti's actual wrestling ability.

Lets see what happens.

To me its not. People act like Siver is world class on his feet. People overrate him because he has a spinning back kick. Well he usually out strikes below average fighter. George will have the reach and will know what to do with it. Not that standing is Soti's best option. But I doubt he will get overwhelmed by Dennis Siver.

I don't disagree here. Soti hasn't ever really been outstruck in the UFC and he tooled Joe Daddy standing that's for sure, that clown is suppose to have good boxing or something.



Siver is a powerful striker but he's very predictable, doesn't use angles, isn't that fast...

And George will fall right in line with the rest of the "below average" strikers.

Not that Andre Winner ISN'T completely better than George on the feet.

Nor a guy like Paul Kelly who can go toe to toe with nearly anyone in the division, but Siver knocked him out, his only KO loss of his career.

George couldn't even outstrike Lauzon and nearly was knocked out by Kurt Pelligrino with a bum knee.

This exactly , Soti looks stiff on the feet doesnt look natural he needs to go to the ground or he will be in trouble.

as a massive sotiropolous fan i'm actually kind of worried about what siver is going to bring, alot more so then everyone else by the looks of things. siver has obviously got a decent amount of power and i think it would be relatively easy for siver to catch even a glancing blow that could stun george for a moment.

still cheering for soti though, can't wait for this one.
