UFC106: Ortiz vs. Griffin 2

"I see this as a step up and I do see the difference between fighting on the undercard and the main card. I'm getting more exposure, and I can see that makes a huge difference. I haven't been fighting on main cards and obviously people are going to see you less. But I feel like I'm a complete fighter and I'm gaining momentum in the public's eye. A fighter's name and his fighting quality are two separate things. Just because people don't know my name doesn't mean I'm not a serious threat. If (Stevenson) doesn't realize that, he's going to have a problem on his hands. He already has a problem on his hands." George Sotiropoulos
