The man that once held two UFC title belts at the same time will attempt to continue to re-establish his self on the long road back to earning at least one of them, when former UFC Lightweight and Welterweight champion BJ Penn takes on Jon Fitch at UFC 127. Penn rebounded from consecutive losses to current lightweight champion Frankie Edgar with a win over Matt Hughes at UFC 123, and will look to make it consecutive wins over one of the top contenders in the welterweight division.

  • UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch
  • (16-7-1) BJ Penn vs. Jon Fitch (23-3-1)
  • Saturday February 26, 2011
  • Acer Arena, Sydney, Australia
  • Online Sports Betting Odds: Penn - 200

Fitch is on the verge of No. 1 contender status after registering five straight wins, all of which were clinched via unanimous decision. Now, Sherdog’s No. 2-ranked welterweight will have his technique and stamina pushed in his toughest sports betting bonus test over that span against Penn.

A black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Penn has succeeded regardless of weight class due to his technique both on the ground and standing, and really made a statement in the win over Hughes. The Kailua, Hawaii-native needed just 21 seconds to sit his opponent down, showing the type of aggression that made him a champion in the first place. Of his 16 career victories, seven were clinched via knockout while another six were awarded for submission. Penn wasn’t able to solve Edgar or current UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, but that doesn’t mean he no longer ranks among the best in the world.

After pushing St. Pierre to the final bell, Fitch has rebounded with five straight wins in his attempt to get another title shot, and while he isn’t there just yet, a win over Penn would certainly boost his potential. The 32-year old is in incredible condition, and has been able to pick his spots while going the distance in each of the last five wins. Fitch was originally spotted to take on Jake Ellenberger, but after watching the way that he dominated the past few MMA betting fights decided to match him up against Penn.

UFC 127 Match Up: Penn vs. Fitch

There aren’t many fighters in the UFC that can match the intensity of these individuals, setting the stage for one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year. Both men like to pick their spots, which should make for an interesting dynamic in the octagon. Penn struggled in his losses to Edgar because of the latter’s peak conditioning and ability to get stronger as the fight went on, and could face a similar problem against Fitch. The winner of this fight will likely be next in line to challenge St. Pierre for his title belt after UFC 129 in April.
