With the recent pay-per-view and ticket sales success of UFC 100, the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) organization looks to continue its onslaught in the mixed-martial arts (MMA) circle with UFC 101: Declaration.
The show is scheduled for August 8, 2009 (August 9, Sunday here in the Philippines) at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.
The main event will feature B.J. Penn defending his lightweight championship belt against Kenny Florian. Penn is currently ranked by Sherdog as the #1 Lightweight fighter in the world and by MMAWeekly as the #3 lightweight fighter in the world. On the other hand, Florian is the the #1 contender for the Lightweight Championship.
The co-main event will feature a non-title light-heavyweight bout between Anderson Silva and Forrest Griffin. Silva is the current UFC Middleweight Champion and holds the record for the longest winning streak of 9 straight wins in the UFC. He moves up to light heavyweight in this bout. On the other hand, Griffin is the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. He is currently ranked as the #4 light heavyweight fighter in the world by Sherdog, and #3 by MMAWeekly.

Where do I watch UFC 101?
Here in the Philippines, Solar Sports has been known to broadcast UFC fights LIVE but apparently, they’re not doing it anymore. Balls Channel will be broadcasting UFC 101 LIVE on Sunday, August 9 at 10:00 AM. Studio 23 will have a REPLAY at 10:30 PM. But our Sky Cable here don’t have that channel so I looked for sites that offer UFC 101 live streaming online free.

I suggest that you use low quality resolution if you have a slow internet connection. If they won’t play due to the sheer number of users watching the UFC 101 streaming videos, don’t worry, I’ll constantly update this and look for ONLINE ones for your viewing pleasure. Please bear with me.
