I don't know why people are this shocked about the result of this fight.
1. Dos Anjos is a very underrated fighter. Great BJJ, decent wrestling and his muay thai is good. And improving all the time.
People bringing up his KO loss against Wiman are the ones trying to convince others that he's not that good.
2. Sotiropoulus doesn't have great stand-up.
Lauzon was beating him standing before he slowed down (gassed) in their fight.
Siver was beating him standing.
His boxing may be pretty technical, but he doesn't have power in his strikes.
Considering his strong point is his BJJ, i believe he should focus on his wrestling (takedowns), in order to take the fight where he feels best.
I have to admit i bought some of his hype (not all of it), especially after his wins over Stevenson and Pellegrino, but now - looking back at those two's recent performances, Soti's wins don't mean much tbh.
3. Soti had a terrible game plan for Dos Anjos, one of the worst i've seen in recent time
I only feel bad because i picked Dos Anjos to win this and switched to Sotiropoulus in the last minute, something that made me lose a bet.
