It has been revealed that UFC heavyweight champion, Brock Lesnar could return to the octagon as early as UFC 114 on May 29th in Las Vegas, Nevada to once again attempt to unify the division.
On a media conference call tonight, UFC President, Dana White said:
Yeah, it's a possibility. In a perfect scenario, (Frank) Mir and (Shane) Carwin fight. One of them wins, comes out healthy, and then we do the Brock fight.
Lesnar was also on the call, revealing the fantastic news that he will soon be back in the gym:
I'll be back in the gym on Thursday morning. I'm going to have a mini-camp. I'm getting ready for anybody and everybody. I know the (fighters in the) heavyweight division are definitely back on their toes again because Brock Lesnar is back.
I don't think I beat [Mir] as bad as I could, so for me to get my hands on that stalker again - Frank Mir has made it a mission of his life. Frank Mir the stalker - it's been a while since I've had a stalker, but we'll take care of that if I ever face him again.
I'll just sit back, I'll sharpen my skills, and I'll be prepared for either one of those guys. If it's Nogueira, if it's Velasquez, I know one thing: all them guys are [expletive] their pants right now.
So I guess Lesnar will be rooting for Frank Mir at UFC 111 when the Las Vegas native takes on Shane Carwin for the interim title. Will the pair complete a trilogy that many believe could still go either way after Mir gained a large amount of weight? I guess its all in the hands of Mir and Carwin.
