UFC 127 Fight Card: 10 Early Pre-Fight Predictions from Australia

February 27th is rapidly approaching as the end date for UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch, which is headlined by a welterweight contender battle between Jon Fitch and BJ Penn at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Topping what transpired in the MMA world over the last couple of weekends will be a lofty task, but there are plenty of exciting things surrounding UFC 127 to anticipate. This will mark the UFC’s second venture into the Land Down Under, following UFC 110, to the undeniable delight of Australian fight fans—some of the most energetic, frenzied spectators in the world.

UFC 127 sold out within moments of going public, making it the fastest selling event, along with UFC 115, in the promotion’s history. That happens to be an astonishing accomplishment considering the many Georges St-Pierre headlined events we’ve seen in Canada over the last couple of years.

Clearly when Aussies aren’t being one with nature—boxing with kangaroos, juggling scorpions and black widows, wrestling with alligators—they are eagerly awaiting live mixed martial arts action.

The stage has been set. All pieces are in place, leaving us with the familiar, but agonizing, task of waiting for the next two weeks to fly by so we can get our fix.

Let’s take a peek at a few early predictions we can count on happening once UFC 127 lands in the southern hemisphere February 27th.
