Its finally here, the UFC has scheduled the first fight for the former WWE star Brock Lesnar. Lesnar will be taking on former heavyweight champion Frank Mir at UFC 81, Superbowl weekend.
The former NCAA wrestling champion, professional football player and professional wrestler will be fighting for only the second time in his MMA career. His first fight was at K-1 Hero’s Dynamite show in June, winning the fight by TKO over Min Su Kim. The UFC is very confident in Lesners abilities, stacking him against former UFC champion Frank Mir.
“Lesnar is a great wrestler, a good athlete, and this is definitely gonna be a big test for him. Frank Mir is a former world champion who is coming off a big win over Antoni Hardonk, and he’s looking to get his career back on track while Lesnar’s looking to walk into the UFC and prove what type of fighter he’s gonna be by trying to knock him off.”
