Less than one month after one of the most entertaining Pay Per View event’s in months, the Ultimate Fighting Championships crash down in Sydney, Australia for UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch. While the welterweight bout between former champion BJ Penn and Jon Fitch is being promoted as the main event, most hardcore MMA fans are looking forward to seeing Michael Bisping and Jorge Rivera throw down in what has the potential to be the Fight of the Night.

  • UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch
  • >
  • (20-3-0) Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera (19-7-0)
  • Saturday February 26, 2011
  • Acer Arena, Sydney, Australia
  • Online Sports Betting Odds: Bisping - 200

That’s because Bisping himself is a three-time Fight of the Night award winner, and he’s taking on an opponent that has developed a penchant for knocking fighters on their backs. Rivera has registered knockouts in five of his last six wins, while Bisping has battled with the best of them.

UFC Betting Preview: Michael Bisping

The Englishman has won three of his last four fights, including consecutive victories over Dan Miller and Yoshihiro Akiyama by unanimous decision, and although he hasn’t shown the knockout power that pushed him to the top, Bisping has been very consistent. The Ultimate Fighter 3 winner has scored 12 of his 20 career victories via knockout, but none since dropping Dennis Kang back at UFC 105. While the transition to the middleweight class hasn’t been the easiest one, Bisping’s iron chin has helped him take absolute beatings but remain alive, as was the case against Akiyama where he struggled early on only to rebound and take the sweep. A former NCAA division-1 wrestler, Bisping will need to be careful not to get caught the same way against Rivera.

UFC Betting Preview: Jorge Rivera

Versed in both Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Rivera will represent one of the toughest opponents Bisping will face. With 13 of his 19 career wins clinched via knockout, ‘El Conquistador’ is as dangerous as they come, and has the potential to take down opponents if they make even the smallest margin of error. After three straight wins against decent competition in the MMA betting, President Dana White feels as though Rivera is ready to take a step up in regards to competition, and there is little comparison to be made that could lead to insight in to the outcome of this fight.

UFC 127 Match Up: Bisping vs. Rivera

The 38-year old Rivera is no longer in his prime, but is still dangerous enough to take on some of the younger competition in the UFC, which we now know on the heels of three straight wins. However, that streak will end against the 31-year old Bisping, who represents the toughest challenge Rivera will have faced. Both fighters are capable of both dishing out and taking a beating, which makes this bout a prime Fight of the Night candidate with Bisping prevailing either by knockout or sports betting bonus decision.
