UFC 100 officially announced for July 11 in Las Vegas

Quote:
As first reported by Yahoo! Sports' Kevin Iole in January, the Ultimate Fighting Championships' landmark "UFC 100" event has been officially announced for July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The UFC made the announcement on its official website Friday morning.

The organization did not release any information regarding potential bouts or ticketing information in the post.

The event is expected to be headlined by a rescheduled rematch between current heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and interim champ Frank Mir. That unification bout had been set for UFC 98 on May 23, but a recent knee surgery by Mir forced a delay in the plans.

During this past Saturday's UFC 96 pay-per-view broadcast, Mir announced the bout would be held at UFC 100. Following the event, UFC President Dana White was less committed to the appointment.

"Off the top of my head, I don't know, but it'll be the summer," White said in the evening's post-event press conference.

UFC 100 will mark the UFC's return to the Mandalay Bay Events Center for the first time in one year. The UFC has recently opted for the venue's sister property, the 14,700-capacity MGM Grand Garden Arena, for major Las Vegas events.

Mandalay Bay, which accommodates approximately 11,000 spectators, last hosted an event in July 2008 when then-UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin headlined UFC 86. Since then, the MGM Grand Garden Arena has hosted UFC 91 and UFC 92 in late 2008, UFC 94 in January and will host UFC 98 on May 23.

While the UFC did not offer many details regarding the festivities, the announcement promised "a night no fight fan will ever forget."

An excerpt from the announcement is printed below.

Featuring the premier athletes in the sport of MMA today, the UFC 100 fight card will be stacked with fighters who have carried on the legacy established by the greats of the UFC such as Royce Gracie, Dan Severn, and Mark Coleman, while building a foundation for the future warriors of the octagon.

And though the past 15 years have seen mixed martial arts evolve from spectacle to sport, one constant remains: UFC is As Real As It Gets.

On July 11, UFC 100 kicks off MMA's next era


The rumored fight card at this time currently includes:

* Champ Brock Lesnar vs. interim champ Frank Mir (heavyweight title unification)
* Champ Georges St. Pierre vs. Thiago Alves (for welterweight title)
* Michael Bisping vs. Dan Henderson
* Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Alan Belcher

I can see GSP/Alves being the most entertaining bout in a long time.

I think GSP will just push Thiago to breaking point and Thiago will wilt under the pressure much like he did against Fitch.
