Brock Lesnar will make his next title defense against Cain Velasquez at UFC 121.
UFC president Dana White confirmed with MMA Fighting Friday night that the heavyweight title fight will take place at the yet-to-be officially announced event, scheduled for Oct. 23 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.
This is obviously big news. Lesnar/Velasquez is one of the absolute best and biggest fights in the heavyweight division. On paper it's a much better fight than even the recent Lesnar / Shane Carwin bout.
Should Lesnar win this fight it will put him in a position where he is only a win over the winner of Junior Dos Santos / Roy Nelson from "cleaning out the division."
SB Nation will have more on this fight and the UFC 121 card as details become available.
