Joe Lauzon Not Wanting To Make Any Mistakes Against George Sotiropoulos At UFC 123

UFC lightweight fighter Joe Lauzon is not looking past George Sotiropoulos who is currently riding on a 7-fight winning streak.  He understands the importance of winning this Saturday night at UFC 123 as he looks to add his second consecutive UFC victory.  Expect a chess match battle between two top-notch MMA ground experts.

From Joe Lauzon:

“I’m an emotionless bastard sometimes so I usually don’t let the pressure get to me too much. [UFC 123] is a much bigger fight [than UFC 118] but I won’t let it get to me. For George, I don’t want to make any mistakes. I have to go for things but I can’t do anything reckless because once he gets on top it’s tough to get him away. I’ve known who Sotiropoulos is for a long time and I love watching him fight. I love watching his guard passing, his top position, he plays a lot of rubber guard, things like that. He doesn’t make mistakes and he brings a lot of pressure. I’ve always payed close attention to him but I can see how other people may have overlooked him a little bit. I wouldn’t be surprised if (Joe) Stevenson or (Kurt) Pellegrino thought it was gonna be a little easier fight then got surprised by him — but I won’t make that mistake.”
