Okay, unfortunately it won’t be against each other but Dana White has announced at today’s post-UFC 123 conference that next February’s UFC 127 will feature BJ Penn vs. Jon Fitch and George Sotiropolous vs. Dennis Siver.
UFC 127 is scheduled to be held at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia in February 2011.
This is great news for Aussie fans of the UFC. While BJ Penn may not be the champ anymore, his destruction of Matt Hughes at UFC 123 proves that he still has championship fighting skills and is still a quality fighter for a main event fight.
Sotiropolous will head into the fight with Siver on a 7-0 UFC record and a win in Sydney will put him in top contention for a crack at the UFC lightweight title.
