ufc 87
Even though we already had the inside scoop, the UFC recently confirmed several bouts slated for the UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" under card at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., on August 9.

Lightweights Frankie Edgar and Hermes Franca will go toe-to-toe as expected, as well as heavyweights Cheick Kongo and Dan Evensen. In addition, Chris Wilson will tangle with Steve Bruno in a solid welterweight scrap.

The battle between The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 6 170-pound contestants -- Ben Saunders and Jared Rollins -- has also been scratched from UFC 86 and will now take place at UFC 87.

Of course, "Seek and Destroy" features the 170-pound world title fight between UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre and number one contender, Jon Fitch. Lightweight Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta will also meet up in a 155-pound eliminator match to see who challenges BJ Penn next for his lightweight title.

And a Minnesota event wouldn't be complete without its native MMA son, Brock Lesnar, who will look to get his first win inside the Octagon against the very dangerous and very experienced, Heath Herring.
