UFC 86: Frank Mir vs Justin McCully

That’s the word according to MMAWeekly.

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….

Obviously this looks like a fight to keep Mir busy and most likely get him another win on his way to a UFC Heavyweight Title shot in the future. Of course that also rests on whether Justin McCully will be able to stay healthy enough to actually get into the cage. We’re hardly at a David Terrell level but it will be about 16 months since his last fight, an absolutely dominating ground-and-pound decision win over Antoni Hardonk at Fight Night 9.

UFC 86 takes place on July 5th at the Mandalay Bay and will be headlined by a Light-Heavyweight Title bout between Quinton Jackson and Forrest Griffin.
