Noke enters the fight as the favorite according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com with betting odds of -225 while Camozzi comes in with odds of +185. UFC 127 takes place from Acer Arena and will air live on Pay-Per-View at 10PM ET.

WHY PICK NOKE

Noke (18-4) has won his last four bouts, including his last two, which came in the UFC. He is a well-rounded fighter that has won by decision, submission, and TKO in his career and he will have the crowd on his side, as he is a native of Australia. This is a bout that is meant to showcase him to a PPV audience, so he must handle the pressure of being in the spotlight.

WHY PICK CAMOZZI

Camozzi (14-3) is also riding a four fight win steak coming into this bout, including his last two in the UFC. Both of his victories have been by decision as he has been able to win the battle on the ground and control his opponent. He will probably be pushed to a fast pace in this fight and his cardio will come into play. If he can win the ground battle once again, he can pull off the upset.

WHO TO PICK?

This could be a fight to look for the underdog as Noke has a lot of things that seem to be on his side, with the home town crowd and the showcase fight, but sometimes those things can work against someone. The pressure is off Camozzi and he is a very capable grappler. Look for him to score the takedowns and control Noke to earn a decision win.
