It’s a long shot. Anything involving Brock Lesnar and MMA is a long shot. But stranger things have happened, and it sounds like Frank Mir is ready to get strange.

After knocking out fellow heavyweight Antonio Silva in the first round of Sunday night’s UFC Fight Night 61 main event, Mir said at the post-fight news conference that he would “absolutely” be open to a rubber match.

“Absolutely, I think it would be a huge, big fight, and I think it would put my name even higher up. I think a rubber match between the two of us would be a phenomenal fight,” Mir said at the presser (h/t Fox Sports). “To keep that anywhere in the works, I had to get a win tonight.”

Lesnar is now ensconced back in pro wrestling, but as most fans know, money talks, and it has a big megaphone for Lesnar‘s ears. A third match between Lesnar and Mir—one of only three men to beat him in pro MMA and easily the one with whom he formed his bitterest MMA rivalry—would put up excellent numbers at the pay-per-view box office.



However, in terms of absolute value, it makes sense for the 35-year-old Mir (17-9) to use whatever fighting energy he has left to earn other “fun” fights in the UFC. The company could also use his big name and championship pedigree to help test and promote up-and-comers in the division. 

But it’s clear that doesn’t hold the same appeal for Mir, and probably wouldn’t for the UFC, which could certainly use a pay-per-view bonanza like the ones reaped in by the first two Mir-Lesnar bouts.

Back in 2008, Mir used a surprise kneebar to submit Lesnar and pull off the improbable victory.

Between this and the 2009 rematch—which was for the UFC heavyweight title and was the main event of UFC 100—Mir and Lesnar engaged in a nonstop war of words, with an angry Lesnar growing more and more frothy over Mir’s smirking taunts. Mir clearly viewed Lesnar as an inferior intellect inside the cage, but Lesnar won the rematch and the title by TKO. 

It’s unknown whether a rubber match is actually viable. But Mir’s success over Silva and his subsequent comments certainly kept the spark of hope alive for the many fans who would pay money to see such an event.

After an ugly breakup, the UFC seems to have mended fences with former light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. It’s surprising, it’s confusing, and it’s almost certainly going to be entertaining.

It remains unclear whether or not Jackson will be able to go back to the UFC freely. According to Jeff Sherwood and C.J. Tuttle of Sherdog.com, Bellator, a rival MMA promotion, claims it still has Jackson under contract. But assuming Jackson eventually is able to return to the UFC, who could he fight?

With plenty of name brand value, a championship pedigree and what will be a great deal of hype entering the promotion, he will have his pick of the litter. There are plenty of options for him. Here are a few.


Mauricio “Shogun” Rua

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua has won a lot of fights in his career22 to be exact. Few of them, however, were as impressive, as emphatic or as scary as his 2005 win over Rampage. A fight between two of the last men standing from the legendary Japanese promotion makes a fair bit of sense.

Given Rua‘s recent struggles and Jackson’s “I don’t care about the belt” approach to the game these days, they are largely in line for fun fights that are ultimately irrelevant to the title picture (but still fun). That makes this a strong, nostalgia-filled fight that would work nicely as a Fight Night main event or a UFC on Fox. It could also be a potential pay-per-view co-main event.

Granted, things could get a bit odd with the timing. Between Bellator‘s likelihood to get litigious over Rampage and Shogun’s commitment to coaching on the fourth The Ultimate Fighter Brazil, their schedules might just be on diverging paths. Either way, this would be a fun one.


Fabio Maldonado

While Fabio Maldonado does not qualify as an aging legend in the same vein as Rampage and Shogun, Maldonado is a fighter who has gained a bit of prominence in the division. While he is by no means a star and is not championship material, he is a safe bet to put on an exciting fight. That makes him a strong candidate to face Jackson.

Maldonado is actually on a four-fight winning streak at 205 pounds (with a heavyweight loss to Stipe Miocic thrown in, just to keep things honest) and currently owns a spot in the rankings. He is most certainly deserving of a name-brand opponent, and his fan-friendly style would mix well with Rampage.

These two would combine for a serious slugfest, and that is always welcome. While the fight itself lacks the drawing power of a matchup between Jackson and Rua, it would still be deserving of a spot near the top of any given card.


Roy Nelson

Ol‘ Rampage has never liked cutting weight. You can’t blame him, of course, but what that ultimately means is an occasional foray to heavyweight is a serious possibility. It is worth noting, too, that he has a pre-made grudge match waiting for him opposite Roy Nelson.

Jackson and Nelson have a history that dates back to The Ultimate Fighter 10, and there were actually gears turning to make this fight happen in Bellator in 2013. While it never came to fruition, a Jackson vs. Nelson fight remains an interesting possibility if the UFC is willing to afford Jackson that freedom.

It was a night when a special announcement made after the first pay-per-view bout threatened to overshadow one of the UFC’s best cards of the year.

The signing of former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks to the UFC roster sent shockwaves through the mixed martial arts world. But it was the improbable career comeback of Robbie Lawler—once considered one of the best prospects the sport had ever seen—that will be the true enduring story of UFC 181.

Lawler‘s capture of the UFC welterweight championship with a split-decision win over Johny Hendricks in the main event was a narrow one along the thinnest of edges. I scored the fight for Hendricks, but the moments waiting for the decision to be announced in the arena were filled with the kind of knowledge that goes a little something like this: That was a close fight. I think Hendricks won. But I also think have this feeling that Lawler is going to get the nod.

And he did. Though judge Glenn Trowbridge’s 49-46 scorecard for Lawler bordered on egregious, it is hard to take issue with the decision as a whole. You cannot say Lawler did not come to fight; he vaulted out of his corner as if shot out of a cannon and attacked from the opening bell.

After that initial explosion, he disappeared for most of the middle rounds. It appeared he’d suffered some kind of injury, or an adrenaline dump; there was no way to explain his lack of offense.

But Hendricks did not capitalize. He landed plenty of strikes, but spent more time than he should’ve just pressing Lawler against the Octagon wall. And that is where Lawler scored points; Hendricks’ inactivity worked against him. It worked for Georges St-Pierre for years, but Hendricks is not afforded the same graces.

Lawler used those moments of downtime to land strikes of his own. They were moments that typically are not favored highly by mixed martial arts judges; on this occasion, however, Lawler came out on the winning side. And when Matt Hughes strapped the welterweight championship around Lawler‘s waist, it truly was the completion of an absolutely remarkable career comeback.

Think back to five years ago, or to the time Lawler was choked out by the much smaller welterweight Jake Shields. We viewed Lawler as a waste of potential, as someone who never lived up to what he could have ultimately been. How fitting is it, then, that it took a return trip to the UFC to truly reinvigorate Lawler, that he is better than ever as he approaches his 15th year in the sport?

The major takeaway from this fight, as it was with the first bout between Hendricks and Lawler, is that they are evenly matched. They are so very close in skill level, and even if they face off 10 times—and we will assuredly see them fight at least one more time—they would probably split wins and losses down the middle.

This is not Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos, where one fighter has clearly demonstrated superiority over his opponent. This is a matchup of two outstanding fighters who are clearly on the same level.

We do not yet know what to make of Lawler‘s championship reign. His next opponent will be Rory MacDonald, and the title defense will likely happen in Canada. Lawler has already defeated MacDonald once. Beyond that, Hendricks will assuredly be waiting for one more go-round, and there is Tyron Woodley, Matt Brown, Tarec Saffiedine and others.

But this night belonged to Lawler. At long last, from the grinding days with Miletich and Hughes and Pulver all the way to the lows in Strikeforce, Lawler has returned from the abyss. At long last, he is a champion.

“What a fight,” Lawler said at the post-fight press conference. “What a fight.” 

What a fight, indeed.
