Rumors swirling out of the UFC have hinted at a potential third and final match-up between former champions and bitter rivals Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir.  The fight would settle the score after Mir subbed the very green Lesnar in his UFC debut back at UFC 81 and Lesnar's absolute destruction of Mir during the rematch at UFC 100.  Dana White and company were sure that this fight would be an absolute blockbuster, selling an enormous amount of tickets and pay-per-views as fans eagerly awaited the grudge match between these two.

But a funny thing happened, fans protested vehemently against the proposed bout.  They bombarded White's twitter account and mixed martial arts message boards detesting the idea of a third bout between the two.  White smartly cooled at the idea of the planned fight and instead has decided to take a wait and see approach as to what happens with the UFC's cash cow Lesnar. 

The fans and White made the right call.  Lesnar and Mir should not be fighting each other right now for a multitude of different reasons.  Check inside to see why Lesnar/Mir III should be held off until further notice.
