The futures of many competitors at UFC 100 lays in the outcome of their bouts: title shots, super fights, and even pink slips, may be given out on July 11th.
The main event features the Heavyweight rematch between Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar. After this fight the line of contenders is very, very narrow. Had Cheick Kongo beat Cain Velasquez won, he would have been the guaranteed number one contender. Cain is on 6-0 and still needs a few more wins over top contenders, as well as Shane Carwin who most recently knocked out Gabriel Gonzaga. The UFC heavyweight's main event status requires one of three outcomes: 1) Frank Mir beats
Brock Lesnar and Randy Couture defeats Antonio Nogueira, then the two fight for the belt. 2) Brock Lesnar beats Frank Mir, and Nogueira beats Couture, then the two fight for the belt or 3) The winner of Mir-Lesnar gets put on the season 11 of the ultimate fighter and does not fight until the summer of 2010, which is very unlikely.
The co-main event features the number one welterweight in the world Georges St Pierre as he takes on Thiago "The Pitbull" Alves. This is undoubtedly St Pierre's toughest task to date. Win or lose for Alves, expect a rematch with Jon Fitch or a fight with Mike Swick. If St Pierre wins, fans will be treated to a superfight, most likely 180 pound catchweight between himself and middleweight champion Anderson Silva
Also the winner of TUF 9 coaches, Michael Bisping and Dan Henderson, is expected to be getting a title shot. This card features Coleman's last fight, as the commission only granted him a one fight license. We also get the UFC debut of top ranked middleweight Akiyama.
