Roman Gonzalez-Edgar Sosa Clash in The Works?

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;15226002]Since when has Sosa been a bum? Aside from Estrada, Viloria and Roman what other fighters do you actually follow at 112? Because your lack of knowledge is showin by making such an idiotic statement. I digress, the rematch between…
