Sotiropoulos, a rising lightweight and Australian native, upset the former lightweight challenger Stevenson in a technical battle contested primarily on the canvas. Though Sotiropouslos outmatched Stevenson en route to a unanimous decision, the exciting bout earned the pair “Fight of the Night” honors.
