George Sotiropoulos vs. Kurt Pellegrino set for UFC 116

A lightweight matchup between title contenders George Sotiropoulos and Kurt Pellegrino has been pencilled in for UFC 116 on July 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The news of the anticipated match up comes courtesy of a recent report from MMAMania.

Sotiropoulos (12-2-0) is currently riding a six-fight win streak and is yet to taste defeat inside the Octagon while Pellegrino (16-4-0) also looks in the best form of his career having won his last four on the trot.

Both men will enter the bout on the back of big hometown victories with the Aussie dominating Joe Stevenson back at UFC 110 in Sydney, Australia and “Batman” throttling Fabricio Camoes at last month’s UFC 111 in Newark, New Jersey.

UFC 116 will be headlined by returning heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar as he puts his title on the line against interim champ Shane Carwin.
