Officials Confirm Several Bouts for UFC 131 in Vancouver

The Ultimate Fighting Championship this week confirmed UFC 131 for June 11 in Vancouver. Former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar will headline the card in a bout with fellow “Ultimate Fighter Season 13″ coach Junior Dos Santos.

The UFC on Friday confirmed four previously reported, verbally agreed to bouts for its return to Vancouver.

Mark Munoz, fresh off of a win over C.B. Dollaway, takes on No. 4 ranked middleweight Demian Maia. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist is coming off back-to-back wins over Mario Miranda and Kendall Grove, trying to work his way back into title contention.

The promotion also confirmed a light heavyweight battle between Australian Anthony Perosh and Polish-born Canadian Krzysztof Soszynski, another middleweight bout pitting TUF 11 winner Court McGee against Jesse Bongfeldt, and Darren Elkins’ featherweight debut against Michihiro Omigawa.

Several other bouts have also been mentioned for UFC 131, including Kenny Florian’s drop to featherweight to face Diego Nunes.

With the addition of the highly rumoured Kongo/Carwin fight this card could be pretty awesome. Good mix of stand up, wrestlers and BJJ guys.

Looks to be a good card. It's hard to compete with a card when you have 128-130 like supercards but i'm still pretty anxious about this one.

Shaping up to be a decent card. Like Rauno said after 128-130 cards it'll be hard to equal them, but this is looking pretty solid.
