Does anyone care about UFC 127? BJ Penn Vs Jon Fitch

UFC 127:BJ Penn vs. Jon Fitch is happening tonight live on pay per view from Australia.

The main event has a fighter(Fitch) who isn't a big draw and has very boring fights. The co-main event between Jorge Rivera and Michael Bisping should be a fight that should only be a co-main event on a SPIKE TV or Versus Network show.

I think only diehard BJ Penn fans would want to see this pay per view. For casual MMA or UFC fans, paying 45 bucks for this card might not be worth it.

Penn vs. Fitch could be a boring three-round fight that ends up in a decision. Bisping vs. Rivera could be a mismatch as Bisping is a better technical fighter than Rivera.

The rest of the fights on the card aren't very intriguing either.

Who knows who Chris Camozzi is? How about Brian Ebersole or Kyle Noke?

The lack of big name fighters on this show is very apparent to MMA fans. The card resembles a Strikeforce Challengers card with so many unknown fighters on the show.

Sometimes fans anticipate a great show when there are a lot of big name fighters on the card and they get disappointed when the show doesn't live up to its hype.

That won't be a problem tonight as not a lot of fans are looking forward to UFC 127.

There might be some great fights tonight but how many fans will be forking over the $45 to watch it on pay per view?
