Ufc 100!!!

I really hope this is true. It would make complete sense:

Mmabay has learned from a source working close with the UFC that an extra special event is being planned for their 100th show, which has been lined up for July 4th weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Speaking to a contact, that we can not divulge, the UFC are planning the blockbuster event to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and could involve EVERY UFC title belt in a night of the champions.

With the likes of B.J. Penn, George St. Pierre and Anderson Silva currently dominating their respective weight classes it is more than likely that such superstars could make the truly historical card.

Yeah it makes complete sense to put every title on the line on the same night and then not have a single title fight for a few months because none of the champions would be ready.

Oh silly mmabay, that makes absolutely no sense. Why would the UFC not have any title fights from like February through September just to have every title on the line in one night?

We can't technically ban them just try to steer clear of them.

Not all the people HAVE to wait. Look at Anderson Silva, he's always ready to go.

Just because he's always ready to go doesn't mean the athletic commissions will clear him to fight if he fought to close together.

Judging from all his fights in the UFC, what would make you think he would not be cleared? Besides, if the man is threatening to retire because lack of fights, maybe he will get more.

The rule that says they have to be suspended for 45 days with no contact for 30 days makes me think he wouldn't be cleared if he fought 45 days before UFC 100. I'm sure he would also want to have a proper training camp and fighting constantly wouldn't allow for that. On top of that if he is fighting and training constantly with no break then the chances of him sustaining an injury are also very high.

It would be a stupid idea for the UFC to have every champion fight on one night. Don't get me wrong I would love to see it but the risk is too high for the UFC. They would be risking 10 of the highest profile fighters being out for awhile because at least 5 of them are going to sustain medical suspensions for at least 60 days.

They'll probably just throw a couple on TUF and they'll be good and clear for 10 months or so.
