I like the fight both are on a roll. Either guy wins has to be a win away from a
Title shot but I gotta go with sodopop

Don't get me wrong Kurt is a very solid fighter, but I think Soda Pop is gonna run him over.

Whose transitions are quicker? I think George might be able to get the decision due to his size. But I will sure as hell be pulling for Batman.

Yeah the winner of this fight could possibly face another contender for a no.1 contender spot.

If Joe daddy couldn't beat George I dont think Kurt will either, this should be a great ground war , i cant wait.

I think Sotiropolous definitly has the better ground game by a long shot, the reason Joe Daddy couldn't beat him is because george was giving him a beating on the feet so stevenson was beat anywhere he went. I think Pellegrino will have good enough takedown d to keep it standing and his standup has gotten so much better with every fight that I think he can pick george apart on his feet for a decision, but then again george's stand up looked really good in his last fight so we will see, great fight tho winner for sure breaks into the top 5

Wow that's a really competitive matchup. I don't know who to pick. I really like Batman, though. My heart may sway me in this one cuz my head is leaning towards Sotiropolous
