    The Ultimate Fighting Championship officially announced the finalized UFC 87: "Seek and Destroy" fight card taking place at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Aug. 9, headlined by the UFC welterweight title bout between champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Jon Fitch.

    Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta square off in a lightweight match up that could determine the number one contender to vie for BJ Penn's title. Collegiate wrestling champion and professional wrestling superstar Brock Lesnar returns to the Octagon taking on UFC and Pride veteran Heath Herring.

    In preliminary action, Ben Saunders was originally scheduled to take on fellow "The Ultimate Fighter" season six housemate Jared Rollins, but Rollins has been replaced by Ryan Thomas who will be making his UFC debut.

    French heavyweight Cheick Kongo looks to bounce back from his loss to Heath Herring at UFC 82 against Dan Evensen while Andre Gusmao steps into the Octagon for the first time against Jon Jones.

    FIGHT CARD:

    Main Card Bouts:
    -Georges St. Pierre (#1 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Jon Fitch (#2 Welterweight in the World)*

    -Andre Gusmao vs. Jon Jones
    -Steve Bruno vs. Chris Wilson

    NOT IMPRESSED

    all the fights other than GSP v Fitch and Huerta v Florian are pretty weak imo. Usually theres hella fights even on the undercard that i can't wait to see.

    My picks. I'll be there with DragOn and another OTer. I think Fitch has a real shot at winning but the safe pick is GSP.

    Fuck Gamburyan... After his lame ass kick instead of touch gloves last time around, lost all respect for that homeboy.
