UFC 100 to feature three 'superfights' in Las Vegas on July 11

UFC 100, which is slated for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11, is now official with three "superfights," including two major title match ups.

The promotion today made the announcement that we all knew was coming for the historic pay-per-view (PPV) event, signaling a major milestone in its more than 15 years of existence.

In the main event of the evening, UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar will tangle with the division's interim title keeper, Frank Mir, to determine once and for all an undisputed champion. In addition, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre will once again defend his 170-pound strap against number one contender, Thiago Alves.

Rounding out the superfight trio is a a middleweight brawl between The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) TUF 9 coaches, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping, who will collide to determine who earns the right to challenge the reigning middleweight champion later in 2009.
