Brock Lesnar’s Next Fight: When and Where?

After his bout against Cain Velasquez in October at UFC 121, Brock Lesnar continues to be an aggressor inside and outside of the ring. Never one to concede defeat, Lesnar is eyeing a rematch against Cain in the future but will likely have to earn his fighting card for another championship.

With redemption on his mind, many analysts expect Lesnar to seek a rematch with Frank Mir, who he fought at UFC 81 (TKO loss) and UFC 100 (TKO victory.) The war of words between top MMA heavyweights and Lesnar reflects his desire to take on the best.

Many expect Lesnar to return to competition at UFC 131, with nearly 70,000 fans packed into Rogers Center. Potential opponents include Roy Nelson, the “Big Country” fighter who would make an interesting rebound opponent for the former champion.

Aiming at his heavyweight contention bout in the future, Lesnar still brings the air of drama from his stint as a WWE champion. Still under contract with UFC, he’s eyeing a variety of rematch options with Mir, Shane Carwin or an emerging fighter. As Velasquez prepares to face another challenge from Junior dos Santos, Lesnar is considering a variety of venues and opponents for his next bout.

The Future of Brock Lesnar in the UFC

An imposing 6’3”, 260 pounds, Lesnar is looking to avenge his loss by building up his reputation. After winning the heavyweight title at UFC 116, he is looking to cement his reputation as a genuine fighter who is capable of more than just wrestling. While his 5-2 record showcases his potential vulnerability, he has been doubling down in technique to make him a better rounded fighter. Importantly, he has recovered from diverticulitis, a disorder of the intestines, which impacted his immune system. His recovery came in 2010, but many believe full health still eludes him.
