Brock Lesnar to Officially Headline ‘Seek and Destroy’

Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir UFC’>

The UFC released an official statement late last night on UFC.com announcing that the heavyweight fight between ex-WWE star Brock Lesnar and UFC Hall-of-Famer Mark Coleman will be the official headlining match for UFC 87, which has been dubbed “Seek and Destroy.” UFC 87 will take place August 9th at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota; tickets go on sale next Sunday at noon CT. Considering that Lesnar and Roger Huerta (who will face Kenny Florian in a #1 lightweight contender eliminator match on the same card) are both based in the Minneapolis area, you should expect those tickets to sell out fast. But hey, there’s always the UFC’s official bloodsucking scalpers “fan to fan ticket marketplace” StubHub.

Coleman expressed excitement at his matchup with Brock Lesnar and his return to the Octagon, but it doesn’t sound like the Hammer’s game plan is to outwrestle the 265-pound dick-tatooed beast. “I’ll be up against a bigger, stronger wrestler for the first time, and they know this fight will be extremely intense from the start,” Coleman said. “But I didn’t take this fight to lose, I expect to win and win by knockout.” Said Lesnar: “It’s an honor to get a chance to fight Coleman, he’s a legend and he’s made history fighting all over the world. I know he is going to come into this fight in great condition, looking to re-establish himself as a top contender in the UFC. It’s going to be a challenge, and I’m looking forward to it.”

Lesnar was close to beating the shit out of Mir. Mir is getting a title-fight and being made a legend through being a coach for next season..that is far worse than lesnar headlining a UFC event my friends..


What the heck are you talking about? Mir is a proven UFC veteren... Lesnar is a 1-1 MMA newbie... how is that the same?!

Anyways - on a side note, I seriously cant wait to see Huerta vs Florian... BARNBURNER!!!!!!!!

sooo Rob, what you're saying is that you won't be watching UFC 87? You would have to be a complete and total tool to think that the UFC hasn't had a good card all year. Did you miss the FREE card they had on Spike? What are you smoking?!? Do you just avoid the UFC fights because you think it makes you fringe to hate on them? Are you old enough to log onto you're dad's account?

despite the fact that lesnar is 1-1, he's extremely strong and poses a threat to ANY heavyweight fighter out there. i think the coleman matchup is great and will be really interesting.. even if it isn't a title fight
what an asshole- May 17, 2008 at 11:07 pm
why would they make this hack headline, he got mollywhopped by trigg. I think I should headline the next ufc.

As much as I think Kimbo is a joke, Lesnar (who at least does have a ground game) is still a neophyte and should NOT be a headliner with a 1-1 record.

The UFC has been selling cards w/ one good fight and plenty of submediocre ones and now they have continued with two roided monsters
*The Huerta fight sounds interesting.


DREAM was amazing this year, Affliction looks good on paper and UFC still hasnt presented a good card in 2008 and this definitely wont help the feeling that they are milking the fans with brand recognition and not fighters..


Hats off to Lesnar though...Mir was a big chunk for his 2nd fight and even though Steroid Rager is an old washed up fighter, he is better than anything Kimbo will fight for the next 2 years.

Lesnar-Coleman headlining? No problem. THere are enough mindless fanbois who will watch anything that says UFC on it.

Those two fights are going to kill...but it's a bummer that the UFC couldn't schedule a GSP or Anderson SIlva title defense for this one. Cards with no championship fights = weak.
