Now that UFC 110 is in the books, the organization has released the official trailer for their highly anticipated “UFC 111: St-Pierre vs. Hardy” event on March 27th.

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will defend his title for the first time since humbling former top contender Thiago Alves at UFC 100 last July. MMA’s baddest welterweight owns a ridiculous 19-2 pro record and is perfect through his last six scraps.

Hardy holds a 23-6 mark and has won seven straight contests. Although the Brit is riding a sick amount of momentum into the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, he’s never faced a beast like GSP.

An interim heavyweight bout between former two-time champion Frank Mir and undefeated Shane Carwin will co-headline the show. The two will duke it out to determine who gets next crack at reigning king Brock Lesnar.

Here are the fighters slated/rumored for the SpikeTV/pay-per-view broadcasts:

Preliminary Bouts:

Ricardo Funch vs Matt Riddle
Thomas Drwal vs. Rousimar Palhares
Rodney Wallace vs. Jared Hamman
Kurt Pellegrino vs. Fabricio Camoes

Spike TV 6PM ET/9PM PT

Ricardo Almeida vs. Matt Brown
Nate Diaz vs. Rory Markham

Main Bouts:

Mark Bocek vs. Jim Miller
Jake Ellenberger vs. Ben Saunders
Thiago Alves vs. Jon Fitch
Shane Carwin vs. Frank Mir (UFC Interim Heavyweight Title)
Dan Hardy vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC Welterweight Champion)
