There's a fantastic lightweight match-up brewing between up-and-coming division prospects Joe Lauzon and George Sotiropoulos, as the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) veterans are currently in talks to throw down at the upcoming UFC 123 pay-per-view on Nov. 20 in Auburn Hills, MI.

MMAmania.com confirmed the pending match-up earlier today.

Great match up, its going to be a tough fight for both guys. I'm leaning towards George off the top of my head!

UFC 12: "Judgement Day" is shaping up great!

Sotiropoulos vs. Lauzon
Mark Coleman vs. Dan Severn

Plus a lightweight AND heavyweight tournament?

I'm there!

Joe Silva what are you doing to me, two of my favs going at it. I'm torn!

As great as I think Lauzon is, I really think Sotiropoulos is just the better fighter.

Joe could derail George's chances at the title fight. Both are great fighters and I like them both but I think Joe's gonna catch him and KO him.

Joe is a good fighter but I think people's opinions of him are inflated after his last fight, which wasn't over a high quality opponent.

He's going to get crushed IMO.

ooooo this is gonna be a doozy...i like em both but im gonna give the slight edge to sotoropppopoisisiplus ...i think his "overall" game is better than j-lo

Hot bout for sure! Probably FOTN candidate too!!

George is definitely the more complete fighter, and should be the favorite. However, Lauzon in the first round is a demon and he may just catch Sotiro with something vicious.

Sotiropolis via lots of laying but no praying. He is not better in the standup and honestly is probably not the better wrestler but his tenacity will get Lauzon to the ground. Lauzon will not get back up.
