UFC 127 Fight Card Preview: Anthony Perosh Vs. Tom Blackledge

A fight that is sure to be of more interest to Australian fans is Anthony Perosh vs. Tom Blackledge. Australian Perosh makes his UFC return after getting crushed by Mirko Filipovic at UFC 110. The Brit Tom Blackledge fights out of the Wolfslair Academy alongside co-main fighter Michael Bisping.

This was my prediction for this bout:

Tom Blackledge vs. Anthony Perosh

Blackledge and Warburton are being grandfathered in because of their Wolfslair association. Perosh isn't anything to write home about, but he's got enough submission skills to give the Brit trouble. Perosh by submission.

It's important to note many disagree with me. Others believe the striking power of Blackledge is probably enough to get the job done, something I won't really dispute. I just don't find that more probable. It's also safe to say the jiu-jitsu black belt in Perosh has a sizeable advantage on the floor.

Either way, I doubt either Perosh or Blackledge has much of a future in the UFC.

This is a light heavyweight bout and will air on Facebook.
