The anticipated heavyweight rematch and unification bout between title-holders Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar will have to wait until July at the earliest after a knee injury suffered by Mir forced the matchup to be officially postponed on Saturday.

Mir underwent surgery on the knee on Monday and will be out of training for four to six weeks, making a May 23rd meeting at UFC 98 impossible.

Instead, Mir and Lesnar are likely to meet in the main event of UFC 100 on July 11th in Las Vegas while UFC 98 is now likely to feature Quinton “Rampage” Jackson against light heavyweight title-holder Rashad Evans.
