Some pretty good fights on tap tonight for UFC 127 in Sydney, Australia. Here are my picks:
Welterweight: BJ Penn vs JonFitch. I got to take Fitch here against MMA legend end BJ Penn.Fitch has a size and reach advantage, as well as outstanding wrestling skills that prove too much for Penn to overcome imo. Penn always has the ability to KO an opponent with his fists or feet, but I think Fitch will be careful to avoid the KO blow.
Middleweight: Michael Bisping vs Jorge Rivera. I think Bisping wins by TKO
Lightweight: George Sotiropoulos vs Dennis Siver: Australian native Sotiropoulos should win at home. George S by decision.
Welterweight: Chris Lytle vs Brian Ebersole. Lytle should win by submission, the way he usually does.
