The Ultimate Fighting Championship's first visit to Germany is shaping up as a good night of fights, as UFC 99 on June 13 is rumored to feature a lightweight title fight of B.J. Penn vs. Kenny Florian, a co-main event of Wanderlei Silva vs. Rich Franklin, and possibly the return to the Octagon of Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic.
The Penn-Florian title fight is definitely going to take place this summer, the only question is whether Penn will be ready by June. Bloody Elbow is among a few sites today pointing out that Penn-Florian would make a lot of sense for the Germany show.
