Soti is extremely overrated right now in my opinion. He really got tooled by Lauson until he gassed out badly in the second round.

Soti is not very strong, doesn't have good Wrestling and his BJJ is also very overrated atm. Siver is no newbie in BJJ and if he fights smart, he could stay out of danger on the ground ( if Soti even get's it there).

If the fight stay on the feet for a couple of minutes.. than Siver takes him out 90% of the time.

Soti can't fight somebody like this standing up, no way!



I mean who has he beat?? Lauzon is his best win so far!

I'm with you on this one for the most part Bobby, but I definitely don't think his jitz is over rated. His ground game is world class.

His wrestling does seem to be lacking though and i'm not overly impressed with his stand up.

His standup looks more then just weak too me Mc. If he stands too long with a Power striker like Siver.. he just has to fall down sometime.

I thought the Lauzon fight opened people's eyes a little about him. He lost that first round and also couldn't outgrapple him in the first.

The second round and the finish shouldn't be mentioned really because Lauzon was already done in this fight. He completely gassed out there.

Otherwise he probably would have beaten Soti.

All Siver needs to do is keep the fight standing and KO Soti. Stay out of danger on the ground and really only defend there, don't try anything special. Just get back up right away.

Yea, i said people were mad under rating Lauzon going into that fight. He won that first round convincingly and was out striking him pretty bad.

Really dont know what happened to Joe in that second round and why he gassed so bad, it was annoying.

Yea, Siver is actually not a bad wrestler either, hes really strong. If Soti cant get him to the mat, hes in trouble.

Exactly

Siver is also a little underrated on the ground I think. He has 9 submission wins compared to Soti who has 8. Doesn'T mean much I know.. but tells us a little.

Something I found interesting but doesn't directly relate to this fight is that the only person that has a legitimate win over Soti is Kyle Noke. Just founde that kind of interesting.

It's like you two watch fights with your brain turned off or something.


Lauzon made it very clear that is game plan was to come out really hard and finish in the first round. His brother leaked the gameplan, Lauzon confirmed it and it is what he did.

All George had to do was weather the storm (which he did without getting hurt or being put in any real danger) then when Lauzon had blown his whole load in round one, George made short work of him.


I think people are really forgetting the way he tooled Joe Stevenson everywhere, stand up and on the ground. Joe Daddy hadn't looked so outclassed since the Penn fight.
