Breaking News: Lesnar vs Mir is Canceled Due to Injury

Nick Paglino

Sherdog.com is reporting that the scheduled UFC Title Unification fight between Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir has been canceled as Mir (pictured at right) will require surgery to repair an injured knee. Reports were first circulating that Mir injured his back, however it has now been confirmed that he in fact suffered a knee injury as well and it is that injury which will require surgery. The operation will sideline the UFC Interim Title holder for four to six weeks. The bout was originally scheduled to take place at the UFC 98 PPV on May 23rd.
