Ufc 100 Lands In Las Vegas, GSP Likely Headliner

Ever since his defeat of B.J. Penn at UFC 94 at the end of January, Georges St. Pierre and his camp has been mired in a quagmire of debate over his cornermen's use of Vaseline in between rounds.

Now, he will likely have more to talk about than petroleum jelly.

UFC president Dana White was the guest on a recent Montreal-based radio show on CKAC Sports 730AM to discuss his promotion's own controversial issues regarding the Quebec Athletic Commission's new interpretation of its own rules putting UFC 97 in jeopardy. While on the show, the juggernaught kingpin revealed his part of his plan for his promotion as it hits the century mark in numbered events.

"I'm pretty confident that UFC 100 will have Georges St. Pierre on the card," he told the host of the program on CKAC. "UFC 100 will more than likely have Georges St. Pierre defending his welterweight title."

He also confirmed that the event would take place in July in the sweltering heat of Las Vegas, the promotion's home base, and not in the moderate temperatures of Denver, where the UFC was born.

There was a lot of speculation that UFC 100 would be turned into a "Night of Champions" themed event, but White has stated in the past that he has no plans to put all or even most of the promotion's belts on the line. It appears that he will, however, put who is arguably the sport's brightest star on the main stage.

This is like the third thread on GSP fighting at UFC:100

It will be a very entertaining fight to watch. I hope Alves finally knocks GSP on his ass. But we will see what happens.

Wait, Dana said this! So, what is really going to happen, because everything he says that is going to happen never does.

I would like them to have GSP vs Anderson Silva as the headliner for Silva's MW belt and P4P title. Other fights they should have is, Penn vs Florian, Page/Machida vs Rashad, Couture vs Nog and Liddell vs Forrest.

Anderson Silva vs Wanderlei Silva would be awesome too.

I hope they put on a great card.

I doubt the card will even be as good as 84 or 92 were but GSP/Alves itself would be enough for me to buy it so we will see how it plays out.

Dana White said that there could be up to three title fgihts on this card.

GSP-Thiago Alves for the WW title is one.

Its likely that Rashad Evans will defend the LHW title on this card. Either against Lyoto Machida or Rampage Jackson.

The third likely candidate is BJ Penn defending the LW title against Kenny Florian.

I Hope Alves wins this..He my fav. fighter out there right now..he puts on show for the fans, true MMA at it's best, He just doesn't lay on top of ya and hit you...But I'm sure his big ass could if he wanted too..He makes fights exciting and he's the best striker at 170lbs...

Yeah great match up but i think he could have kept anderson off the other fight cards and bumped him up to the 100 match card to make it a truly awesome event but that is my personal opinion.
