UFC President Dana White revealed earlier today that UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and interim UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir are tentatively slated to meet in April to unify the titles.

“Mir took little damage in his fight with Nog, and Lesnar wants to fight him soon, so April may be the time and place for that. It will be good,” White told Fighters Only.

The promotion’s only major event currently scheduled for April is UFC 97 on April 18th in Montreal, Canada. Though the UFC has not yet finalized it’s return to the Bell Centre due to hockey playoff scheduling, the event is already rumored to include a middleweight championship fight featuring current title-holder Anderson Silva squaring off against challenger Thales Leites. David Losieau vs. Ed Herman and Jonathan Goulet are also rumored for the card.

Mir enters the rematch with Lesnar off a December upset of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira while Lesnar claimed his title from Randy Couture in November.
