UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch takes place this Sunday, Feb. 27, 2011 (Saturday, Feb. 26 in the U.S.) at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. Former two division world champion BJ Penn will waste no time getting back into the Octagon following November’s 21-second knockout of Matt Hughes, as faces top contender Jon Fitch in a battle of two of the 170-pound division’s fiercest competitors. Plus, The Ultimate Fighter winner Michael “The Count” Bisping will test his chin and his will against one of the hardest punchers in the middleweight division, seasoned veteran Jorge “El Conquistador” Rivera.
