To the unfamiliar, the above poster simply shows four shirtless white guys with eerily similar expressions. To us, it’s cause for celebration. As previously reported, UFC 111 (March 27, Newark) will be the first UFC event since #100 to feature two separate title fights on the same card; coincidentally, Georges St. Pierre and Frank Mir were part of that event as well. Tickets go on sale to Fight Club members this Thursday, newsletter subscribers on Friday, and to the general public on Saturday.
In a related story, Brock Lesnar‘s health status will be updated this week, which means we’ll soon find out whether he’ll be coming back this summer to fight the winner of Mir/Carwin, or if his career will be on ice for even longer — like, permanently. So basically, here are the possibilities we’re looking at, from most atractive to least attractive:
1) Lesnar makes a full recovery; Carwin beats Mir at UFC 111 and we get to see Lesnar/Carwin for the unified heavyweight title like we were supposed to originally.
3) Lesnar makes a full recovery; Mir beats Carwin at UFC 111; Lesnar and Mir have a third fight this summer for the unified title, while the other top contenders in the heavyweight division sit on their asses waiting for their turns.
4) Lesnar is told he’ll be bedridden for the rest of his life; he creates a robotic battle-suit; he wreaks havoc on Las Vegas, bathing in the blood of his enemies; Mir beats Carwin; Mir is beaten by James Toney.
