A lightweight matchup between veteran Joe Stevenson and Australian George Sotiropoulos is in the works for UFC 110 on February 21 in Sydney, Australia, according to MMA Mania.
Stevenson (31-10), the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 2, dropped 3 of 4 from January 2008 to February 2009, including losses to lightweight champ BJ Penn, Kenny Florian, and Diego Sanchez, but has won two-straight since joining Greg Jackson’s camp earlier this year, earning back-to-back wins over Nate Diaz and Spencer Fisher.
Sotiropoulos (11-2), a cast member on The Ultimate Fighter 6, remained unbeaten in the UFC with a second-round submission of Jason Dent at UFC 106 earlier this month, improving to 4-0 inside the Octagon with his second-straight win at 155-pounds after dropping down from welterweight earlier this year.
UFC 110 is expected to be headlined by Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Cain Velasquez and is also likely to feature Dong Hyun Kim vs. Chris Lytle, Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic vs. Ben Rothwell, and Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski.
