25 Dennis Siver vs George Sotiropoulos UFC 127
I remember this fight. It was the beginning of the end of
still went the distance..
G soto is not really a good win...
You have a hard time remembering historical context. It was a huge win at the time.
It was a big win back in the day. George was on the brink of being legit Top 10 until Siver wrecked his shit.
In hindsight not as good as it seemed then, but he was still very solid when he was on his streak.
this exactly this was supposed to be sot's big break in fight but siver spoiled it
21 Dennis Siver vs Paul Kelly UFC 105 Coutu
Hmm, some really solid guy who was supposed to shine in top 10, but lost to Siver... will history repeat itself?
Most likely yeah. Conor is setting himself up for a fall he cant take!
Am I alone in thinking Siver is a beautiful man?
Well done, sir. :icon_lol:
he is not the joke that Sherdog wants him to be.
You have a hard time thinking for yourself and using what we learned later for context. G-Sot was a manufactured contender because the UFC was trying to market toward Australians, and he got lucky against Lauzon who tooled him then adrenaline dumped, and was basically dead in the water. I was calling for G-Sot to get exposed long before he was. He was an atrocious athlete for the UFC and lacked wrestling to implement his ground game against decent or better UFC opposition.
But Siver is a solid fw. I thought the drop down in weight would be good for someone with his lack of reach. Unfortunately this weekend he's going to be giving up significant reach anyway, and against someone with better creativity, timing, and power than him. He's got his work cut out for him. I'm not a McGregor fan at all, but the UFC obviously picked Siver because he was a favorable match-up.
Machida, Creepy, Florian, Rampage, Ben Stiller, Jones?
Wow, Siver clearly sucks now.
Did you just compare Soti to the GOAT?
Yes. Yes i did. A case could be made that Soti was more proven too
