The rumored Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard and Brock Lesnar vs. Shane Carwin fights have been signed.
“I did sign to fight Gray Maynard the other day, so its gonna happen finally in Boston. I am very, very excited in Gray Maynard and I am finally fighting in my home town.”
Florian didn’t mention if it would be a number one contender’s match.
Later in the show, Franklin McNeil reported that Lesnar-Carwin will indeed go down at UFC 116 in Las Vegas.
“Its pretty much done. The UFC has not confirmed this right now so its not official but several sources have told me that both Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin have signed to complete this fight. Dana White said he wanted this fight to happen in July, it looks like its going to happen.”
