Reports have surfaced that the main event for UFC 98 set for May 23rd could feature the rematch between heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and interim champion Frank Mir. The bout, if signed, would crown an undisputed UFC heavyweight champion.

MMAMania was the first to report this potential match-up.

Lesnar defeated Randy Couture at UFC 91 to become the UFC heavyweight champion. It was Couture’s first fight after over a year-long layoff due to legal issues with the UFC.

Mir defeated Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 92 to capture the interim title that had been given to Nogueira during Couture’s absence.
