Frank Mir vs. Brendan Schaub In The Works for Early-2011 UFC Event

Frank MirA heavyweight matchup between former champion Frank Mir and The Ultimate Fighter 10 runner-up Brendan Schaub is in the works for an early-2011 UFC event, MMA Weekly reports.

Mir (14-5) scored a third-round knockout of Mirko Cro Cop in September to bounce back from a March loss to contender Shane Carwin, and was rumored for a third meeting with Brock Lesnar before fan reaction prompted Dana White to re-think and abandon to rubber match for now.

Schaub (7-1) has won three-straight since falling to Roy Nelson in the finals of TUF 10 last December, most-recently earning a unanimous decision over Gabriel Gonzaga in October.

The fight is tentatively slated for March, which includes UFC on Versus 2 on March 3, UFC 128 on March 12 and UFC 129 on March 19.
