Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion BJ “The Prodigy” Penn will be looking to add to his legacy and show his fighting spirit when he takes on gritty number two welterweight Jon Fitch in the main event of this weekend’s UFC 127 event.
In addition to that match up, the UK’s Michael Bisping will look to defend his honor against trash-talking veteran Jorge Rivera in a middleweight contest that will serve as the card’s co-main event. Also, Australian contender George Sotiropoulos will be hunting to extend his seven-fight Octagon winning streak by taking out dangerous German striker Dennis Siver.
UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch goes down this Saturday night (Sunday morning in Australia) at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia. Tune in to the Versus Network this evening at 8 PM ET to see the Countdown to UFC 127 show.
