George Sotiropoulos will meet Josh Togo in a lightweight match at Hex Fight Series 26 — which takes place May 26 at the Melbourne Pavilion in Australia — according to the organisation, which confirmed the event on Tuesday.
Sotiropoulos competed on the sixth season of The Ultimate Fighter and had 11 fights inside the UFC's octagon between December 2007 and October 2013.
Sotiropoulos won his first seven UFC fights and was on the verge of a featherweight title chance before he lost a decision to Dennis Siver at UFC 127 in February 2011.
George Sotiropoulos has important victories over George Roop, Joe Stevenson, and Joe Lauzon. The defeat to Dennis Siver ruined his momentum and sent his career spiraling downward.
The 21-fight pro lost his next four fights, including his final three in the UFC and a decision loss to Mike Ricci.
Josh Togo enters the battle on a three-fight winning streak and has won seven of his last eight fights.
In his most recent fight, the Australian Top Team standout won a decision against Tahir Abdullaev to earn the UAE Warriors welterweight title in September 2022.
