Dana White says Brock Lesnar will return early in 2012. Shane Carwin says Alistair Overeem is close to a deal with the UFC. Frank Mir welcomes a fight with either man.

Mir spoke with Middle Easy (transcription by MMA Mania):

"If [a third Lesnar fight] works out, it works out. I just want to fight again, it doesn't matter who. [Fighting] Alistair Overeem would be pretty cool if he actually came over. I think he's a great fighter, I think he's done a lot in this sport, his K-1 accomplishments, I think he's an immediate threat. I'd like to test myself against him."

I think the fight would look a lot like his fight with Carwin. I'd still like to see it and I think it's a marketable fight as a free card headliner or a co-main event.

i think this will turn out to be a good fight, Mir vs Overeem. he is one of 3 HWs on the UFC roster i can see giving AO problems (Velasquez and Russow the others )
