Frank Mir Injures Knee, Rematch With Brock Lesnar May Be Postponed


Frank Mir is scheduled to fight former WWE heavyweight wrestler Brock Lesnar at UFC 98 on May 23rd for the UFC heavyweight title unification.  However, Mir suffered a knee injury that may postpone the anticipated heavyweight rematch.   Mir’s camp stated that his knee began to swell excessively during a training session.  He was immediately checked up by doctors and an arthroscopic surgery was performed to clean up his right knee.  The surgery will keep him out about 4-6 weeks which may postpone the rematch bout to a later date.

UFC President Dana White was asked by media about Mir’s injury, but states is unaware of his injury:

“I don’t know anything about it, so I honestly couldn’t tell you anything about it…I’m not too worried about it now. If that were the situation, I’d know about it. I honestly don’t know right now. I haven’t talked to Frank and I haven’t talked to Lesnar and if that’s the situation, I’m not going to make any statements until I talk to everybody…if he were hurt and the fight was off, I’d assume I would know.

    Damn!! This sucks big time…. Now if he were to fight Lesnar, he is going to have twice as hard a time beating him!
