Rumors have been swirling around that Overeem might pull out because of his mother's health, but nothing has been proven. If it does happen, then this writer hopes that Overeem and his mother take all the time they need to help themselves out emotionally and recover from this tough time.
With that said, the world of MMA moves on, and if the rumors do prove true, then the UFC needs a new main event for its end-of-the-year card.
Frank Mir has campaigned for the shot against Lesnar, and who can blame him? He is still healthy, having finished off Nogueira quickly, and a third match between the two would draw serious interest.
By now, fans know how both men work and what their style are. A breakdown of the fight, with the focus on their skill sets, is irrelevant and would only rehash what has been said before in their last two meetings. Instead, the better choice would be to see what questions need to be answered before the 2011 version of Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar potentially step in the cage against each other.
