Key Fights – Week of February 21

February 21, 2011 Leave a comment

We have a very busy week of fights ahead of us with lots of smaller promotions putting on bigger fights.  There are a lot of good women’s fights, the biggest of which is Roxanne Modafferi dropping down to 125 lbs. to fight Rosi Sexton.  This will be a very important fight, as both fighters are top three in their respective weight classes.

Former UFC fighters Gerald Harris and Paul Daley will be in action, while UFC 127 will take place in Australia this weekend.  The winner of the Fitch/Penn match seems to be in line for a title shot, while George Sotiropoulos has yet to be defeated in the UFC.
