UFC 111, the Most Stacked Event Ever? Probably Not, But It Still Rocks!
UFC 100 has become the standard for top notch fight cards. Whether it truly merits the status of the best card ever depends on who you talk to. Most hardcore fans will disagree on that being the best card ever, in fact, despite it's strength on paper and besides Brock Lesnar's rant it seemed to be an ordinary above average PPV.
One thing UFC 100 did was put the UFC on the main stage and catapult it to commercial acceptance. The "human-cockfighting" arguments we used to have to tolerate are now basically moot. The mainstream media doesn't even bother anymore, instead they provide the fights we love to watch with expanded coverage.
We've seen cards that are legendary such as the appropriately named UFC 73-Stacked which featured Sean Sherk, Tito Ortiz, Rashad Evans, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria, Stephan Bonnar, Kenny Florian, and a title match between Anderson Silva and Nate Marquardt to UFC 17 that featured Frank Shamrock, Jeremy Horn, Mark Coleman, Pete Williams, Dan Henderson, Carlos Newton, and Chuck Liddell.
Regardless of what you believe is the best card of all time, I think you'll be impressed by the potential of the UFC 111 card. As of now there are three fights that are confirmed to at least be in the works. GSP, Dan Hardy, Frank Mir, Shane Carwin, Ricardo Almeida, and Thiago Alves are all included in that group. Woah!
Not only that but Kenny Florian and Frankie Edgar have also expressed strong interest in fighting on this card. Fighters from New Jersey such as Kurt Pellegrino will also likely be featured on the card considering how much the UFC likes placing hometown heroes on their cards. With that said, here is what could happen...
GSP vs. Dan Hardy - Welterweight Title Bout
Frank Mir vs Shane Carwin - Interim Heavyweight Title Bout
Kenny Florian vs. Frankie Edgar - Top Lightweight Contender Bout
Thiago Alves vs. Ricardo Almeida - Almeida's first fight as a Welterweight.
Nate Quarry vs. Alan Belcher - My fight of the night pick.
Kurt Pellegrino vs. Jim Miller - A tough matchup for two New Jersey natives.
Phil Baroni vs. Marcus Davis - Baroni comes home to retire, the final slugfest.
Eliot Marshall vs. Steve Cantwell - A solid LHW matchup between two up and comers.
