Former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight champion Frank Mir will fight Justin McCully on July 5 in Las Vegas, sources close to both camps have confirmed. Bout agreements have been signed, adding the first heavyweight match-up to a card headlined by Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin.

Hopefully Frank comes into this fight in shape. He looked like he trained hard for his last fight against Lesnar. This could be a good chance for Mir to get a win, and maybe a shot at a #1 contender fight for the belt.

From what I heard he only trained for 2 or 3 weeks before the Lesnar fight. He looked gassed after one round during the interview.

He'll make quick work of McCully.

Really. He looked like he was in pretty good shape. A lot better shape than some of his previous fights.

Hmmmm....I don't think he'll be in the running for a title shot anytime soon, I would say at least 3 more wins. He needs to beat at least 2 top competitors from his division first. Although I don't think his div has top competitors much anymore.

This is disapointing. How the hell is Mir supposed to get close to a title shot if they keep making him the gatekeeper of the HW division?

McCully is tough so you can't say the guy doesn't have a chance. But, it's a pretty small chance. Mir by Submission in 2nd round.
