The Ultimate Fighting Championships has officially announced UFC 98 “Mir vs. Lesnar II” set for May 23 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC President Dana White:
“Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir put on one of the most intense one round fights I’ve ever seen at UFC 81 … But when it was over, both guys saw things very differently. Lesnar blamed his loss on inexperience and being too aggressive, while Mir saw his win as a triumph of his technique, something he says will happen every time they fight. On May 23rd, each fighter has his chance to prove his point, and while a lot has happened for these two since that first fight, I know the rematch is going to be just as intense as the first one, especially considering that the winner walks away as the UFC Heavyweight Champion.”
Tickets for the pay-per-view event go on sale this Thursday to UFC Fight Club members.
