MMA News – UFC 131 – Brock Lesner vs. Dos Santos – Vancouver

Las Vegas, NV (USA) – With the heavyweight division better than it’s ever been, the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) is proud to confirm another blockbuster matchup that is sure to shake up the UFC Octagon® as well as the mixed martial arts community. Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar faces the man with the most dangerous hands in the heavyweight division – Junior dos Santos – as The Ultimate Fighter®: Team Lesnar vs. Team dos Santos coaches collide at UFC 131: LESNAR vs. DOS SANTOS, live from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on Saturday, June 11.

“Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos are two of the most explosive heavyweights in the game, and I give both of them a lot of respect for taking this fight,” UFC President Dana White said. “Brock wanted the quickest way back to a title shot, and he’s willing to go through dos Santos to do it. Junior could have waited around for his shot at the belt, but as a true fighter he didn’t want to sit around, and now he faces one of the toughest guys in the game. This is going to be one of the biggest heavyweight fights in years, and it’s guaranteed to be all-action from start to finish”.

“We are pleased to have the UFC return to Rogers Arena. We are committed to providing a world class experience for all of our guests at each and every event we host,” said Canucks Sports & Entertainment Vice President & General Manager, Arena Operations, Harvey Jones. “We recognize British Columbians’ passion for sports, entertainment and the UFC and are excited to be able to host this event again this year”.
