Brock Lesnar made one of his rare appearances yesterday to announce to the MMA world, that if all goes well, he is aiming for a return in early July.
“I feel really good. I’m back to training, I started mini camp last week and I feel great,” Lesnar told KFAN Sports Radio AM 1130. “Everything is on track. Starting to build the base up again and get ready to fight hopefully mid-summer. We’re thinking about July 3rd Las Vegas right now.”
For his long-awaited comeback, Lesnar will be fighting the winner of the co-main event at UFC 111.
“I’m fighting the winner of Frank Mir and Shane Carwin,” Lesnar said of his next foe. “If one of those guys are unable to fight after that fight, I’ll probably fight Cain Velasquez from my understanding. I’d really like to fight Frank Mir again. I am truly hoping that Frank wins this fight so it sets us up for July and maybe the next beat down will … (laughing) … I don’t know what I have to do to shut him up.”
I don’t blame Brock for wanting to get in the Octagon with Mir after his recent verbal attacks towards Lesnar, stating he hoped Lesnar would be the first death in MMA.
“The guy should probably just focus on the task in front of him, which is Shane Carwin, because if Shane Carwin beats his ass he won’t be fighting me,” Lesnar stated. “Hopefully he gets past Shane Carwin so I can put another beat down on him.”
