The Ultimate Fighting Championship has released its UFC 98 fight card for May 23 in Las Vegas.
Headlining at the MGM Grand Garden Arena is a heavyweight unification bout between current champion Brock Lesnar and interim titleholder Frank Mir. Lesnar won the title from Randy Couture at UFC 91 in November, while Mir enters the fight having won his portion of the championship from Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 92 in December.
Another highly anticipated bout at UFC 98 is a grudge match of sorts pitting former UFC welterweight champions Matt Hughes and Matt Serra against each other.
