i doubt it will be 102
i think silva will defend his title at 102
I think so too, but I would not be surprised if a middleweight title defense is featured on a card as a secondary or co-main event. I don't think the UFC trusts Silva's drawing power anymore; there are rumors that UFC 97 didn't do well, and the Leites fight definitely doesn't help Silva's selling power. A Machida win over Evans for the 205 title would probably force UFC into booking something extravagant in order to draw considerable interest in two of their champions. (There's also the tiny chance that Zuffa are pulling the trigger on St. Pierre/Silva fight, and if that's true, there's no way that happens in August.)
Looking forward to seeing Jackson again too. I'm interested to see how he fares against either Machida or Evans.
