It looks as if Brock Lesnar will be making his return back into the UFC on Independence Day weekend at UFC 116. Lesnar will be defending his heavyweight belt against Shane Carwin.
Along with this big bout, Kenny Florian announced yesterday on ESPN’s MMA live show that he will be fighting Gray Maynard at UFC 118 in August. And host of the show, Franklin McNeil confirmed during the news segment, that Brock and Shane have now signed for the July bout.
“It’s pretty much done,” Franklin said. “The UFC has not confirmed this right now so its not official but several sources have told me that both Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin have signed to complete this fight. Dana White said he wanted this fight to happen in July, it looks like its going to happen.”
