UFC 94 card confirmed, Fitch on the undercard

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) today confirmed several bouts for its humongous pay-per-view (PPV) event scheduled for Super Bowl weekend at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on January 31, 2009.

UFC 94: “St. Pierre vs. Penn 2″ features the welterweight superfight between former 170-pound champion and current lightweight kingpin BJ Penn versus reigning welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, as well as the highly anticipated showdown between light heavyweight unbeatens Lyoto Machida and Thiago Silva.

The mega card also includes the returns of Stephan Bonnar and Karo Parisyan from respective injuries that kept them out of action for several months apiece.

And former number one contender Jon Fitch — who just headlined UFC 87: “Seek and Destroy” opposite St. Pierre — will look to get back in the title chase when he takes on Akihiro Gono in a fight that is not guaranteed to be televised.

That doesn’t make much sense — perhaps the card is just that stacked or it’s retribution for the 24-hour contractual fracas the went down last month.

Here is the complete UFC 94 line up:

Main event:

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre vs. UFC Lightweight Champion B.J. Penn in a 170-pound title bout

Main card (Televised):

205 lbs.: Lyoto Machida (13-0) vs. Thiago Silva (13-0)
205 lbs.: Stephan Bonnar (11-4) vs. Jon Jones (6-0)
155 lbs.: Nate Diaz (10-2) vs. Clay Guida (24-9)
170 lbs.: Karo Parisyan (18-5) vs. Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim (11-0-1)

Under card (May not be broadcast):

170 lbs.: Jon Fitch (17-3) vs. Akihiro Gono (29-13-7)
155 lbs.: Manny Gamburyan vs. Thiago Tavares
155 lbs.: Chris Wilson (14-4) vs. John Howard (10-4)
265 lbs.: Jake O’Brien vs. Christian Wellisch
170 lbs.: Matt “No Regard” Arroyo (3-2) vs. Daniel Cramer (0-0)

I would rather see Fitch/Gono then Parysian/Kim on the main card

I'm pretty sure anyone sane human being would. If Fitch's fight is on the undercard for real, that's pretty stupid.

wow I cant believe they are doing this. Fitch showed so much heart in his fight with GSP and didnt even say anything when it took him 8 fights to get a title shot. I mean I would much rather see him fight than bonnar. The bonnar/jones fight does not interest me whatsoever

I guess Fitch is getting penalized for this video game BS. They should invert Karo/Kim with Fitch/Gono imo.
