This heavyweight bout was initially leaked as a potential main event when 101 was slated for Portland, Oregon in August, however that event has now shifted to the newly-MMA-sanctioned state of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia) and will take place early August.

UFC 101 has been rumored to be headlined by the lightweight title bout between current champ B.J. Penn and outright #1 contender Kenny Florian.

As for a venue, 102 could take place as the Rose Garden. Details are still forming and we’ll keep you up to date.
