staff writer John Buhl joined USA Today’s Sergio Non to discuss UFC 127, which will air on pay-per-view tomorrow at 10 p.m. on the East coast.

They take a look at the main event between former lightweight and welterweight champion B.J. Penn and top 170-pound contender Jon Fitch. Can Fitch’s size and wrestling rule the day, or will Penn’s speed and striking prove too much?

Also, Sergio and John discuss two of the other featured bouts on the card: Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera and George Sotiropoulos vs. Dennis Siver. The middleweight fight between Bisping and Rivera has taken on a life of its own, with Rivera’s trash talking seemingly getting under Bisping’s skin. As for Sotiropoulos, a win over Siver, a dangerous striker, could earn him a shot at the UFC lightweight title.
