Dana White Disputes Report of Frank Mir Injury, Says Brock Lesnar Fight Is On


UFC President Dana White says that he still expects Frank Mir to fight Brock Lesnar for the heavyweight title at UFC 98.

Although multiple media outlets reported today that Mir-Lesnar was off because Mir suffered an injury, White says that's news to him.

"I don't know anything about it, so I honestly couldn't tell you anything about it," White told Kevin Iole of Yahoo. "I'm not too worried about it now. If that were the situation, I'd know about it. I honestly don't know right now. I haven't talked to Frank and I haven't talked to Lesnar and if that's the situation, I'm not going to make any statements until I talk to everybody."

Mir did not return a call seeking comment. Mir vs. Lesnar is currently scheduled as the main event of UFC 98, which takes place May 23 in Las Vegas.

UPDATE: Mir talks about his knee surgery.
