Haha whats with the double posts? No big deal really. I think Sotiropoulous is still going to win even if he has a new opponent.

Sotiropoulos should still pick up a win here....but instead of a decision I think he will get a finish

I will take George in this fight and you know which george Im talking about.

Also I saw that Emerson is going to face Dos Anjos, because Wiman had to pull out of that fight because of a knee injury.

The Emerson at 103 item appears to be legit but not yet confirmed. On a related item, it's because Matt Wiman is off 103. Knee.

This makes picking much easier for me. Sotiropoulos vs. Emerson was difficult for me and Dos Anjos vs. Wiman was also difficult. Now Sotiropoulos has an easy submission victory in my opinion and Don Anjos can should be able to take a victory from Emerson. Good fights.

Of coruse this one is now easy to pick-either way George wins. I just hope it doesn't go to a decision simply because when Buffer starts announcing the winner we have to wait for the last names to know for sure, like with Hughes-Serra.

Going with George!









Sotiropolous by Submission in round 2 (Tapout due to Rear Naked Choke)

But if they go the distance, George the Aussie is winning by Unanimous.
