Saturday is UFC 111 and we are in for a treat with two title fights plus a welterweight showdown between two former title contenders looking to get another shot at the belt. The UFC is returning to New Jersey for the first time since UFC 78 back in November of 2007. The main event will be Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre defending his belt against the very brash Dan Hardy. The Co-main event will be for the interim Heavyweight title as former champ Frank Mir will look to get another shot at Brock Lesnar as he takes on Undefeated Shane Carwin. Another solid fight on the card is the rematch between Jon Fitch vs. Thaigo Alves that could give us the next welterweight #1 contender.Lets not forget about the rest of the fight card that is very solid with names like Jim Miller, Nate Diaz, Matt Brown, Ben Saunders and Kurt Pellegrino. MMA Fanes have been looking forward to this fight card for months and we are finally only days away, here are my predictions.

Alves Out! Ben Saunders has stepped in to face Jon Fitch with Alves being out. The Kurt Pellegrino vs. Fabricio Camoes has been moved up to the main card to take the vacant spot.

As i have a few times before I will be on the Fist-Ta-Cuff radio show discussing UFC 111 with Anton and maybe Noah Thomas
