According to a report in the Sydney Morning Herald, UFC Lightweight contender George Sotiropoulos could be one win away from securing a shot at the 155lb. UFC Title:

“George Sotiropoulos is one fight away from setting up a dream UFC world title fight in Sydney next February. Geelong-born Sotiropoulos will face either B.J. Penn or Kenny Florian in a lightweight title eliminator in November, and victory would likely earn him a bout for the championship belt when the UFC returns to Sydney next year.”

“Frankie Edgar will take on Gray Maynard later this year. Sotiropoulos is confident of claiming the belt against whoever wins.
