UFC 127 will be taking place at the Acer Arena this Sunday, February 27th 2011. The Acer Arena is in Sydney, Australia for those of you that don’t know and this will be the 2nd time the UFC has been held in this arena. UFC 110 was also held at the Acer Arena and it was a huge success, which is why I’m the UFC has decided to come back to the land down under. There is a solid card to bet on for UFC 127 and there should be some great money making opportunities if you follow our advice.

UFC 127 Main Event Odds
Jon Fitch -200 vs. BJ Penn +160 (click here for $250 bonus to bet it)
When you think about the Welterweight Division the 1st name that comes to mind is George St. Pierre, as he has dominated the division for years now. Jon Fitch and BJ Penn have had to deal with always being regarded as fighters not up to par with George, but there is little question that these two fighters are near the top of their division. The winner of this fight is going to be considered the #2 fighter in the division, which should put some pressure on both the veteran fighters.
In the end I think it’s going to come down to who wants it the most. Both fighters have a ton of experience and either fighter could win this match-up. Fitch is the bigger more aggressive fighter, but at the same time Penn can throw his weight around the octagon. Fitch has a great ground game as well that might give BJ fits, but we’ve all seen Penn battle from his back in the past against tough opponents. Fitch should win this fight and I’ll be riding him here, but there are some much easier fights on the card this Sunday.
UFC 127 Pay-Per-View Fights Odds
Michael Bisping -350 vs. Jorge Rivera +275 (click here for $250 bonus to bet it)
This should be one of the easiest fights of the night in my opinion although I’ve seen stranger things happen in the UFC. Jorge is coming into this fight without having fought in over a year plus he’s just about 39 years old. Bisping on the other hand has plenty of huge fights in his career and Rivera isn’t even close to the toughest competition Michael’s had to fight. Bisping still has a chance to become a title contender, but he can’t lose to Jorge this weekend. Bisping is in a higher class then Rivera in terms of fighting in the octagon and I’m betting Bisping all the way. The juice is pricey on Bisping, but if you throw him into a few 2-fighter parlays you should be able to keep the amount of juice risked to a minimum.
George Sotiropoulos -365 vs. Dennis Silver +285 (click here for $250 bonus to bet it)
Some people have been betting on Dennis Silver to pull off the upset at UFC 127, but I’m not a believer. If George can win the fight this weekend he’ll be given the chance to fight Miller with the winner being given the chance to fight for the title. Dennis is a powerful striker, but his weaknesses play right into Sotiropoulos’s strengths. George is great at submitting his opponents and Silver has already lost four fights due to submission. George will need to try and take the fight to the ground early and look for a quick submission to end the fight in a timely manner, which I’m predicting he’ll do.
Chris Lytle -275 vs. Brian Ebersole +215 (click here for $250 bonus to bet it)
Chris Lytle is a hardnosed UFC veteran that wants a shot at some big name competition in the near future. Lytle is 37 years old and he may not have much time left in his fighting career. This fight was supposed to pit Chris against Carlos Condit, but Condit recently got injured and now Brian Ebersole will be fighting Chris. Ebersole has a ton of fighting experience, but not in the UFC, which I think is going to end up being a problem on Sunday when he fights veteran Lytle. I expect Lytle to win this fight in the 1st or 2nd round and then be given a chance at a top welterweight opponent.
Kyle Noke -215 vs. Chris Camozzi +175 (click here for $250 bonus to bet it)
Both these fighters were in the Ultimate Fighter 11 and there is little doubt that this should be a very entertaining bout between two fighters that need to have a good showing. Since appearing in TUF11 both fighters have gone 2-0, which means one of them is about to have their winning streak ended. Noke is the clear favourite and most of the action is going to be on him because of the fact he’s an Aussie. Noke is a very well-rounded fighter, but I think Camozzi might upset the home crowd favourite in this fight and I like the +175 odds.
