With UFC 123 headed our way on November 21 (Aus), the UFC has finally completed the card and listed who will be fighting. The event features two main events with Rampage Jackson fighting Lyoto Machida and BJ Penn versus Matt Hughes.
Those two fights alone make for a very impressive card with all four fighters being former UFC title holders in their weight divisions. The fighter to watch in my opinion will be Rampage Jackson as it will be interesting to see how much he has been able to develop as a fighter now that his A-Team movie commitments are out of the way.
But perhaps an even bigger fight for the Australian fans will be watching George Sotriopolous go up against Joe Lauzon. A win for George in this fight will put him right up in title contention with the possiblity still out there that this title fight will occur down under in February.
