The Ultimate Fighting Championships have confirmed which event will hold the Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir II bout for the unified UFC heavyweight championship and that venue will be UFC 98 on May 24th.

In their first bout at UFC 81, Mir submitted Lesnar 90 seconds into round one after Mir locked in a knee bar forcing Brock to tap out, since then, Lesnar has beaten the "Texas Crazy Horse" Heath Herring at UFC 87 and captured the UFC heavyweight title by knocking out "The Natural" Randy Couture at UFC 91. Frank Mir took a coaching job on the reality show, "The Ultimate Fighter", and made history by becoming the first man to finish "Big Nog" at UFC 92 by TKO, winning the interim heavyweight title.

After finishing Big Nog, Mir motioned to Lesnar, who was sitting in attendance, that he should be the only heavyweight champ in the UFC. This should be an entertaining bout as they have a history and both have made it into a grudge match.
