UFC 100 is expected to be the biggest show in the history of the UFC and rumors have already started to swirl about the event and what the UFC will offer fans. UFC President Dana White confirmed during a recent radio show appearance in Canada that the event will feature a title bout between welterweight title-holder Georges St-Pierre and American Top Team number-one contender Thiago Alves.
Both of these fighters have had their share of controversy over the past twelve months. GSP was a target of fellow fighters, fans, and the media after his now-controversial victory over BJ Penn, which resulted in what we now know as “grease gate”. Alves’ controversy resulted from his inability to make weight for a June 2008 fight with Matt Hughes. “The Pitbull” also found himself in some hot water regarding banned dietetics, but that is a buried issue at this point in time.
UFC 100 is sure to be an amazing night of MMA. We know of one title fight to take place, but others are likely to follow. Rumors indicate that TUF coaches Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson will meet on the card and Rashad Evans is expected to put the light heavyweight belt on the line against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson or Lyoto Machida. We have several months before the event and the UFC is sure to throw together an amazing night that will attract a record number of fans for the historic 100th event. One thing I would like to see at the event is the induction of some additional fighters into the UFC Hall of Fame.
