Late last week, Ultimate Fighting Championship’s CEO & co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta took to Twitter to answer fan's questions and break some news regarding his heavyweight fighters and plans for his mixed martial arts organization.
The biggest news revealed was the next opponent for former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir.
His answer was only one word… “Cain.”
Former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velásquez will try to get back in the win column after his lackluster title loss to Junior Dos Santos this past November, a fight that aired on Fox.
In that bout, Velásquez was knocked at 1:04 in the first round.
Mir would prove to be a formidable force against Velásquez.
In December at UFC 14, Mir submitted Brazilian legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira by breaking his arm with a kimura.
Many believe the winner of this match-up is next in line for a title shot.
Fertitta also revealed that UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will defend his title at UFC 146 in Las Vegas. The event is scheduled for May.
