Finally, the UFC announces the ticket release for the anticipated fight between “Lesnar vs Mir Part II”. The fight is scheduled for May 23rd in MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas. The tickets will be released March 7 at 10am PT.
Brock Lesnar is the current UFC Heavyweight Champion, and Frank Mir holds the interim belt after defeating Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira with an impressive knock out win.
This is what UFC President Dana White had to say about the fight:
“Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir put on one of the most intense one round fights I’ve ever seen at UFC 81,” said UFC President Dana White, referring to Mir’s submission victory over Lesnar in February of 2008. “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 ”
