Following Wednesday's official announcement of a main event between UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn and top contender Kenny Florian, the UFC officially named its Aug. 8 pay-per-view event "UFC 101: Declaration."

The event takes place at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia.

The addition of a preliminary-card bout between Shane Nelson and Aaron Riley brings the fight card to a total of 10 bouts, which includes a five-fight main card.

In addition to Penn vs. Florian, "Declaration" features a co-main event between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Forrest Griffin. The non-title fight takes place at 205 pounds and marks Silva's first fight in the division in 13 months.

Other notables on the pay-per-view main card include "The Ultimate Fighter 7" winner Amir Sadollah, "TUF3" winner Kendall Grove, and veteran Josh Neer.

The full card, including the night's televised main card, includes:


Champ B.J. Penn vs. Kenny Florian (for UFC lightweight title)
Champ Anderson Silva vs. Forrest Griffin (non-title fight)
Johny Hendricks vs. Amir Sadollah
Ricardo Almeida vs. Kendall Grove
