"UFC 87:Seek and Destroy was the place to be on August 9, 2008. It was a night packed with action, lots of exciting decision wins, and well....it turned out the way everyone thought it would for the most part.
Huerta vs Florian. Thought to be one of the more exciting fights of the year, some people were questioning just how exciting it would be and it turned out to not be one of the greatest fights(still a very good one though). Basically what this fight came down to was game plans. Huerta usually has a tendency to go crazy in his fight and always looks to KO someone with a punch or a knee everytime he throws one. Anyone who knows the way Florian fights knows that he is a master of game plans and is one of the most intelligent fighters in MMA. I was looking at this fight knowing Huerta's game plans from before would not work with Kenny because he is such a smart fighter and will not brawl with Huerta whenever a punch is thrown. So the question is does Huerta change up his style for this fight or does Florian's masterful game plan succeed?
Lesnar vs Herring. Brock Lesnar, 0-1 in UFC at the time, was returning from his loss to Frank Mir at 81 by submission to take on the Texas Crazy Horse, Heath Herring, who was coming off a split decision win over Cheick Kongo at UFC 82. Herring was coming from a brand new training camp and claimed to be in the best shape of his life. As for Lesnar, the dude is just a beast of a wrestler and one tough guy. The fight starts off with a bang that I think no one expected. There were so many questions unanswered as to whether or not Lesnar is the real deal. I think this fight proves that.
GSP vs Fitch. Did anyone think this fight would go the other way? We all know how great GSP is but Fitch was coming to this fight to show he would be a great champion and he does to a certain extent. GSP was coming off his rematch win to Matt Serra and Fitch was coming off a not so great win to Chris Wilson. While Fitch is one tough dude, he doesnt seem to put GSP in defense at all the entire fight. He just takes a 5 round whoopin. Great fight for fans of GSP.
According to Dana White, the pre-lim fights weren't that great at all. The DVD is still worth buying though because the main card was so good.

"This is one hell of an event.
You get to see Jon Fitch, on an 8 fight (all in the UFC) winning streak looking to break Royce Gracie's consecutive win record, stepping up to face GSP, the current dominant WW Champion. What ensues is a grueling battle of attrition.
Then you have Brock Lesnar who attracts a lot of attention and sales boosts for the UFC coming off a loss to Frank Mir. In this fight he shows what a beast he can be if he truly hones his skills.
The rest of the card is filled with action that ranges from spectacular KOs to slick submissions. A worthy DVD to place on your shelf."
