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.
