UFC 100 will be July 11 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
(sports.yahoo.com)
UFC 100 will be July 11 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. MMA is still not legal in New York, let alone sanctioned. If Liddell and Silva win their upcoming fights, against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua and Thales Leites, respectfully, it could occur, but I doubt it. For what it’s worth, White insists he hasn’t begun to work on matchmaking for that show yet.

GSP '' It's A Fight That's Going To make History''
(mmaweekly.com)
Being a part of the biggest fight in UFC history could rattle a lot of fighters. With millions watching all over the world and thousands of fans in attendance, just about anybody could feel the nerves shaking their body, or the butterflies in their stomach. But one fighter who is as calm as can be is UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, who isn't thinking about hype, promotion or fan fare. He's only thinking about one thing. B.J. Penn.

Another Reason Why BJ Penn vs. Georges St. Pierre 2 Is So Monumental
(bloodyelbow.com)
Dave Meltzer nails it: It is the first time in UFC history that, not just champions, but dominant champions who are on that night in their physical primes and the best in the world in their respective weight classes, will face off. The winner is basically guaranteed a spot in the UFC Hall of Fame. The loser, well, there’s a good chance he’s ending up there as well, but may have to take a longer road to get there.

UFC.com - Hughes, Serra and Sherk weigh in on GSP-Penn II
(ufc.com)
There will be plenty of discussion this week heading into UFC 94’s mega-clash between lightweight champion BJ Penn and welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre in Las Vegas. After all, this is a highly-anticipated rematch pitting two of the worlds best pound-for-pound fighters, and big fights always make for big business—especially in the futile business of predicting who’s going to do what to the other. Sensationalists, mostly found in blogospheres, will have you believe that Georges St-Pierre is an unmovable object with divined wrestling leverage, and that Penn flies around on a magic carpet and is made of Silly Putty; level-headed sports talk will center more around GSP’s chin and Penn’s cardio. Romantics will remind everyone that a chin is just an extension of the heart, and that cardio is more literally about conditioning. It’s convoluted. The pre-fight hype, that is.
