Watch out Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann, Frank Mir and Brendan Schaub may be taking your headliner status at UFC on Versus 3. Heavy.com is reporting that Mir and Schaub have verbally agreed to meet in early 2011, and it will likely be the main event for the UFC’s third Versus show.
Heavy.com has confirmed that verbal agreements are in place for a heavyweight clash between Schaub and Frank Mir. MMAJunkie.com first reported the possibility of the bout on Monday morning.
Sources informed Heavy.com on Monday afternoon that the bout is likely to headline UFC on Versus 3 on March 3, but could ultimately switch to UFC 129 on March 19 as MMA Junkie originally reported.
As mentioned, MMA Junkie notes that the fight could also take place at UFC 129 on March 19, so it’s still possible Sanchez-Kampmann will headline.
