UFC President Dana White mentioned to FightersOnly magazine, that the highly anticipated UFC heavyweight unification bout between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir could happen as early as April, possibly at UFC 97.
“Mir took little damage in his fight with Nog, and Lesnar wants to fight him soon, so April may be the time and place for that. It will be good,”
White also called the series of heavyweight fights a “Tournament”. The UFC heavyweight belt was broken up after Randy Coutures left the UFC only to return and lose his belt to Brock Lesnar at UFC 91.
