Fear not, Northwesterners, it appears that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hasn’t forgot about you after all.

Lorenzo Fertitta — majority owner of the promotion along with his brother, Frank — revealed on the Underground Forum over the weekend that UFC 102 will likely take place at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore., on August 29.

It’s good news for fans there because it appeared that the previously rumored show was scratched in favor of a bigger market in Philadelphia, Pa., on August 8, which we first reported here. And that would have been the second time Portland was passed over — UFC 91: “Couture vs. Lesnar” in November 2008 was talked about before being held in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Now it seems likely that “The City of Roses” will host its first-ever UFC show. And it will more than likely feature one of the sport’s biggest stars — and local-area product — former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Randy Couture. He is scheduled to lock horns with former Pride FC and UFC interim heavyweight champion, Antonio Rodrigo ‘Minotauro’ Nogueira.

In addition, it is likely that the 205-pound showdown between former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin and the previously unbeaten Thiago Silva will serve as the co-featured fight of the night when the bout is made official.

UFC 101, therefore, will likely feature a main event between lightweight champion BJ Penn against number one contender Kenny Florian, as well as several other possible bouts that we have discussed in our event archive right here.

Rose Garden Arena can seat more than 20,000 fans at full capacity. It is the home of the NBAs Portland Trail Blazers NBA franchise. Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more on this developing story.
