All the contestants slated to compete in tomorrow night’s “UFC 111: St-Pierre vs. Hardy” event have tipped the scales inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
A pair of title fights will headline the star-studded event as former champ Frank Mir takes on undefeated Shane Carwin for the interim heavyweight championship. It’s believed the winner will unify the crown with reigning king Brock Lesnar later this summer, possibly at UFC 116 on July 4th weekend.
Georges St-Pierre will defend his welterweight strap against Dan Hardy in the night’s featured attraction, it’s the first time he’s seen an Octagon since annihilating Thiago Alves at UFC 100 last July.
GSP is prefect through his last six fights and has looked completely untouchable in the process.
