Default UFC 100 Lands in Vegas!

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.

I was never to excited about having most of the champs on one card because then it would be a while before we saw them defend. This would be the card to have a mega fight like randy fedor. Then have fedor fight for the belt. But for the 100th card I hope its huge.
