UFC President Dana White announced today that former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar and number one contender Junior dos Santos will match wits as the coaches of season 13 of the hit Spike TV reality series.
Following the season, which begins filming this month and begins airing on March 30, Lesnar and dos Santos will then match fists in the Octagon later in 2011.
Looks like Brock Lesnar isn't ducking top competition in the UFC, agreeing to meet heavy hitter Junior dos Santos. This is huge for the UFC, as they'll likely break records on Spike TV, and PPV. This is a huge match up, and it will certainly be interesting to see how Lesnar reacts to being so far from home for an extended period of time. That is, after he cashes the large check he'll be receiving for taking part of The Ultimate Fighter.
The link was pulled, but Dana White HAS announced on the UFC Fight for the Troops 2 conference call that Lesnar will be coaching against Junior dos Santos. Also, there will NOT be an interim title on the line, the winner of this fight will challenge Cain Velasquez when he is healthy.
