Gomi Vs. Sotiropoulus Booked For UFC 144 In Japan

By Chris Howie

A lightweight contest has been added to the card for the UFC's return to Japan this February at UFC 144 as the company announced today that Japan's own Takanori Gomi and Australian George Sotiropoulus have signed to fight each other.

Gomi, the long time Pride lightweight Champion has gone 1-3 since debuting in the UFC and with two straight submissions losses, will have his hands full with the BJJ specialist Sotiropoulus.

Sotiropoulus himself has been on a bit of a skid. He strung together seven straight UFC wins and had his name in the title hunt picture but following two straight losses he now finds himself fighting for his job instead of a belt.
