On the eve of the most significant heavyweight fight in recent history comes the news of the booking of the most anticipated heavyweight match since Brock Lesnar fought Randy Couture last November. It was never a question of if, just a question of when, and now, it looks we have our answer.
Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir will meet for the second time at UFC 98 to determine who is the undisputed UFC Heavyweight Champion, according to a report at MMA Mania (corroborated by Brock’s facebook page, no internet, huh Brock?).
The final round of the mini heavyweight tournament set up to declare an undisputed division champion will take place at UFC 98 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 23.
Reigning champion Brock Lesnar will lock hamhocks with Frank Mir for the second time in the main event of the blockbuster pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is sure to be the second — if not the biggest — show of 2009 for the promotion.
When these two fought back in January of 2008, who would have ever thought they would fight again almost a year and half later for the title. If that’s not proof that anything and everything happens in this sport, I don’t know what is.
