With only 11 days remaining until the curtain is drawn on “UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch” in Australia, the world’s premier mixed martial arts show has released the extended trailer to help hype their return to the land down under.
The event takes place February 26th inside the Acer Arena in Sydney. Former multi-divisional champion BJ Penn will stand opposite Jon Fitch in the card’s featured attraction.
Although Fitch owns an imposing 23-3 resume, 13 of his wins have come via decision. The grappler’s last eight contests have all gone to the judges’ scorecards. He’s won all of them except a lopsided defeat to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 87.
After getting dominated in back-to-back lightweight title fights to reigning king Frankie Edgar, Penn decided to make the jump back up to the 170-pound division. He quickly disposed of Matt Hughes in his last outing at UFC 123.
A middleweight scrap between Michael Bisping and Jorge Rivera will serve as the night’s co-main event.
