Default New 98 main event to be announced tonight

The UFC will announce a new main event for UFC 98 during tonight's pay-per-view broadcast of UFC 96 "Jackson vs. Jardine," has learned.

UFC 98, which happens Saturday, May 23 in Las Vegas, was scheduled to be headlined by an undisputed heavyweight title bout between interim champ Frank Mir and champ Brock Lesnar, but Mir suffered a knee injury that will push the fight to sometime in the summer.

Instead of finding a replacement for Lesnar and possibly jeopardizing the Lesnar vs. Mir 2 fight, the UFC has decided on a new headling bout.
