UFC President Dana White held a press conference on ESPN earlier today announcing the rematch of Matt Hughes and Georges St. Pierre for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 63 on September 23rd.

How do I even say this? We’ll although unofficial, it seems that we now have a co-main event for the upcoming UFC 62 - A rematch of the best fight in UFC history: Stephan Bonnar will take on Forrest Griffin.

UFC’s website has a statement asking fans to tune into ESPN tomorrow during The Hot List for a huge announcement.
