UFC’s next pay-per-view ($44.99) is 127 on Feb. 26, which airs live from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.While the card lacks quality star power and any title fights, the main event is somewhat exciting as Jon Fitch (23-3) fights B.J. “Prodigy” Penn (16-7-1).

Fitch is 13-1 in the UFC and, wanting another title shot, he needs a good victory over the former two-division champion Penn, who has lost two of his last three fights, both to lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
