With Brock Lesnar out of commission indefinitely, Frank Mir and Shane Carwin will face-off for the “Interim” UFC heavyweight belt at UFC 111 on March 27 in Newark, NJ.
Former UFC heavyweight champion, Frank Mir (13-4) is coming off a impressive guillotine submission victory over French kickboxer Cheick Kongo at UFC 107 “Penn vs Sanchez”.
Undefeated Shane Carwin (11-0) was in line to take on Brock Lesnar for the heavyweight belt at UFC 106 before Lesnar came down with a severe intestinal disorder, forcing him out of the fight.
The fight has been verbally agreed upon, but contracts have yet to be signed.
