The stars are perfectly aligned for the biggest scrap in MMA history to go down between UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar and interim title holder Shane Carwin later this summer at UFC 116.
Although the July 3rd unification bout has yet to officially be announced by the organization, that hasn’t prevented the hype machine from kicking into gear, as Spike TV has released a video promo for the epic battle.
Lesnar was last seen annihilating Frank Mir at UFC 100 en route to unifying the heavyweight crown. After his dominating effort, Lesnar contracted mononucleosis and parlayed that into an infection that ate away at his intestines.
Although his life hung in the balance, Lesnar was able to make a “miraculous” recovery, however his extended leave forced the UFC to manufacture an interim belt.
Carwin gladly collected the crown by posting a 1stRound TKO over Mir at UFC 111 last month. The part-time engineer is perfect through his first 12 MMA contests and has ended all of them violently in the 1stRound.
