The UFC 100 pay-per view on July 11 is expected to draw well over one million buy rates. The number will likely be closer to 1.5 million and will be the highest ever for a UFC pay-per-view event. The main event features Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir with co-main events of Thiago Alvez vs. Georges St. Peirre and Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping.
As seen on ECW this week, Ezekiel Jackson made his debut on the brand, defeating local wrestler Jack Meridol. Jackson had not been on WWE television since the April 3, 2009 episode of SmackDown, in which he lost to Jeff Hardy. Jackson was drafted to the ECW brand two weeks later as part of the 2009 Supplemental Draft, therefore breaking up the team of himself and The Brian Kendrick. Without debuting for in ECW, Jackson returned to Florida Championship Wrestling for further training, where he largely squashed talent.
More WWE talent paid tribute to Michael Jackson. On last week’s episode of SmackDown, R-Truth wore a single white glove and Melina wore a white glove with the fingers partially cut out.
