The official weigh-in event for UFC 127: "Penn vs. Fitch" is set to go down on Saturday, February 26, 2011, from the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.
It is currently scheduled to air LIVE right here on MMAmania.com, as well as several other online destinations via streaming video on Friday, Feb. 25 at 10 p.m. ET as a result of the disparity in time zones.
As usual, MMAmania.com will provide the latest coverage of the UFC 127 weigh-ins, as well as provide a detailed recap of the festivities as soon as they conclude.
