Will Brock Lesnar fight Roy Nelson? Or Frank Mir? Depends on who you ask ...


If Brock Lesnar has his way, Roy Nelson could finally have a partner to start his 2011 fight campaign.

That's because the former UFC Heavyweight Champion has reportedly asked for a rebound fight against "Big Country," according to F4Wonline (via Bloody Elbow).

The UFC, however, may have other ideas, including a rubber match with Frank Mir

Mir stopped Lesnar with a knee bar in their first encounter way back at UFC 81 before getting smashed in their rematch at UFC 100. A war of words took place before, during and even after the July 2009 bout, including Mir's infamous death wish directed at a then-ailing Lesnar.

It would be an easy bout to sell, but are fans willing to buy?

A fight with Nelson on the other hand, could be an interesting and pivotal match-up for both men.

Lesnar lost his UFC title after getting dominated by Cain Velasquez at UFC 121 just last month. Nelson was on wobbly legs for three rounds in his bout with Junior dos Santos at UFC 117 and never got into his rhythm. Before running into "Cigano," Nelson knocked out Brendan Schaub to win TUF Season 10 followed by a stunning TKO over Stefan Struve.

So lets hear it Maniacs. What bout would you like to see? Lesnar-Mir III? Or Lesnar-Nelson?
