Mir-Lesnar II is now officially postponed from the original May 23 date.
Frank Mir appeared on the UFC 96 PPV broadcast with Mike Goldberg. He confirmed that he got his knee scoped recently and it would take 4-6 weeks for his knee to be 80 percent, and then he could do light sparring. Mir said he wants to possibly do the fight on July 11 so he can fight Brock Lesnar at 100 percent, and have no excuses.
They did not confirm July 11 as the definite date of the Lesnar vs. Mir rematch, but it sounds like that's the plan, assuming Mir's healing process doesn't hit any roadblocks.
Mir said it was a lingering knee injury and that the knee just finally popped in practice a while back, necessitating the surgery.
They showed Brock Lesnar in the audience but didn't give him a chance to comment.
