Brock Lesnar Returns in November

A small item in the Pioneer Press claims UFC Heavyweight Brock Lesnar will return to action in November. As you remember from yesterday, Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson are supposed to be fighting in November as well. I mentioned that was a weak main event and it appears the UFC agrees. After Lesnar's first UFC victory, he is now a headliner and I believe deserving of main event status. He is popular, exciting, and a legitimate contender in the heaviest weight class. All that boils down to a main event fighter.

No word yet on who he will face. At the post-UFC 87 press conference, rumors were circulating that Lesnar would face Cheick Kongo in his next bout. It remains to be seen if the UFC can book the fight, though. Kongo would be a good opponent and make for an exciting match-up.

I don't buy him being a main event guy.
