UFC 127 Predictions

By: Clay

Chris Camozzi over Kyle Noke
Chris Lytle over Brian Ebersole

The hearts of the Australian fans will be broken when Dennis Siver slips by George Sotiropoulos on the judges score cards.

The ref will step in and save Jorge Rivera from Michael Bisping's precision ground and pound sometime in round 2.

I wish I could say that I see BJ Penn working over Fitch easily... Penn by decision.

Michael Bisping has faced top notch talent in the UFC's middleweight division. So why hasn't he gotten a title shot yet or even been named to fight in a contender's match? Fighting Jorge Rivera is a BIG step back in my opinion. And I know Bisping will fight whoever the UFC puts in front of him but this is ridiculous. Other than the knockout at UFC 100 by Dan Henderson, Bisping has only been defeated by decision. Once by Rashad Evans (light heavyweight split) and Wanderlei Silva (unanimous). Bisping has been rocked in fights but has always displayed the ability to remain calm and not take damage and then turn the fight around (Kang UFC 105 and Sexyama UFC 120).

Jorge Rivera is NOT a step up in competition for Bisping, he's two steps back.
