After watching a very entertaining Super Bowl weekend card in UFC 126 (beware of the Anderson Silva front kick of doom!) I will refrain from any “shrimp on the bar-bay” jokes from Dumb & Dumber this time as the UFC heads to Sydney for UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch. Did I make that promise last time? Can’t remember. Moving on.
With a plethora of local and international talent to round out the card, the UFC 127 main event pits former LW champ BJ Penn against perennial WW contender Jon Fitch in a match that could determine the next contender to Georges St-Pierre’s belt at a date TBD. Even though both men would love another crack at the #1/#2 (depending on who you talk to) pound-for-pound best fighter in the world, they may have to ‘settle’ for whomever the champ is IF GSP moves up to MW for a Super Fight with Anderson Silva. Oh the uncertainty of it all! Before we get to that, here’s a look at the rest of the card.
