It's been stated by Dana that the winner of Carwin and Mir will face Lesnar most likely at UFC 116 in July if no major injuries occur too the winner. If there happens to be an injury to the winner of the Mir and Carwin fight Dana recently stated at UFC 110 post fight conference that Cain would be next in line for a shot at the belt.
Is two wins enough to justify another shot at the belt for Mir? In my opinion Mir is #2 HW fighter in the UFC right now followed closely by JDS and Cain, but as a fan I would be much more pleased to see the champ fight someone other than Mir for the third time in five fights. In my opinion fighting Mir for the third time will prove nothing to all the Brock critics out there. A fight against another top HW would be much more beneficial in proving to all the critics Brock is for real, assuming he wins of coarse, were beating Mir will not prove anything to most of his critics?
I'm under the assumption that Dana and Mir have has conversations about this and thats why we are hearing Mir talking more about Brock than his upcoming opponent Carwin, in hopes of keeping him in the media spotlight and hype himself as the fighter us fans want to see face Brock.
The question is MMA fans, what do you want to see? I put what I believed to be the top four choices, please feel free to state your reasons for making your pick.
