Georges St. Pierre
on Saturday night at UFC 87 clearly defined his roll as the No. 1 welterweight
fighter in the world with his domination of the No. 2 welterweight in the
world, Jon Fitch. In doing so, however, he has aligned a superfight between
himself and current UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn. The bout has been
confirmed by UFC president Dana White and is likely to take place at the promotion’s
year-end event in late December.

 

Former
professional wrestler Brock Lesnar clearly established himself as a force in
the UFC’s heavyweight division at UFC 87, punishing Heath Herring over the
course of their three-round fight. Lesnar won a unanimous decision and the
praise of White, who at the post-fight press conference declared, “Brock Lesnar
is a mixed martial artist.”

 

Top
lightweight contenders Kenny Florian and Roger Huerta also battled it out on
Saturday night with Florian earning a unanimous decision and a shot at B.J.
Penn’s lightweight belt, once the Hawaiian has met his challenge against St.
Pierre.
