According to sources speaking to MMAWeekly.com, the bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir and “Ultimate Fighter” season 10 runner-up Brendan Schaub has at least reach verbal agreements, although no bout agreements have been issued at this point. Mir vs. Schaub would likely end up on one of the cards coming up in March, but an exact date has not been verified.
The match-up between Schaub and Mir locks up the fact that the former heavyweight champion will not be facing Brock Lesnar in a trilogy fight. UFC president Dana White had talked about the match-up but then backed off when fans on his Twitter page seemed very lukewarm about the idea of a third fight between the two heavyweights.
