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," MMAFighting.com 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.

Yes, yes, yes! I still got hopes of seeing Mir/Lesnar fight then. If this can happen in the summer time or in September, than that would make one sweet birthday present.

Well like I posted in the mir lesner 98 thread I think they will swap main events from 98 and 100. Have gsp alves at 98 and mir lesner at 100.

Sounds like Mir needs a couple more months to prepare.

Rashad/Machida for the LHW strap?

I can think of three possibilities:
1) Rampage/Rashad provided Rampage wins
2) Machida/Rashad
3) Florian/Penn

that works, although Penn hasn't defended his LW title in what, a year? so i would like to see that happen before the Rashad/Machida fight.
