UFC coming to Philly

UFC 101 is expected to take place Aug. 8 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.

The UFC has been eying the Big House since the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission (PSAC) announced newly-approved regulations for the sport of mixed martial arts that took effect on Feb. 27 of this year.

UFC 101 is expected to feature a major 155-pound title fight between BJ Penn and Kenny Florian as well as a co-main event between former UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture and former UFC Interim Heavyweight Champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Additionally, Thiago Silva and ex-205-pound kingpin Forrest Griffin are also expected to fight as are fan favorite Matt Hamill and former heavyweight Brandon Vera.
