Jorge Rivera vs. Michael Bisping Possible for February's UFC 127 in Australia

Jorge RiveraOne day after his UFC 122 co-headliner with Alessio Sakara was scrapped at the last minute, Jorge Rivera is expected to face fellow rising middleweight Michael Bisping at UFC 127 on Feb. 27 in Sydney, Australia, Rivera told Sunday.

Rivera (18-7) scored a second-round TKO of Nate Quarry in March for his third-straight win, while Bisping (20-3) topped Yoshihiro Akiyama last month for his third win in four fights.

Both Rivera and Sakara were reportedly paid for their UFC 122 matchup after Sakara was forced off the card with flu-like symptoms.

A matchup between rising welterweights Carlos Condit and Chris Lytle has also been targeted for the UFC 127 fight card.
