UFC 87 Website Launched

The UFC has launched the official website for UFC 87 featuring a main event between Georges St. Pierre and Jon Fitch Saturday August 9th. The event takes place at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN. The event also features a fight between Brock Lesner and Heath Herring. Herring is coming off a decision win over Cheick Kongo at UFC 82 and Lesner is coming off a submission loss to Frank Mir at UFC 81.

In what may be the most exciting match up of the night, Kenny Florian will battle Roger Huerta to see who will be next in line to battle for the 155 lbs title. The winner of this could get a shot at BJ Penn, if Penn decides to stay at 155 lbs and defend his title. Penn has stated he would like to move up and challenge GSP at 170 lbs and would be difficult for him to get motivate to fight either Huerta or Florian. One the one hand it may be difficult to fight either one of them, given that Penn pounded on someone who beat Florian, Sean Sherk.

On the other hand, I think either of these guys gives Penn a great fight at 155. Florian has improved by leaps and bounds each fight since the Sherk match and Huerta has tremendous heart and each fight seems to raise his game to another level.

You can check out the 87 site here UFC 87. Many tickets appear to still be available.
