Shane Carwin confirms expected interim title fight with Frank Mir at UFC 111

It looks as though the plan is to have undefeated heavyweight heavy-hitter Shane Carwin (11-0) face Frank Mir (13-4) for an interim heavyweight title on March 27, at UFC 111, in Newark, N.J. Carwin confirmed the expected match-up today on his website (www.shane-carwin.com):

Carwin had originally been next in line to face UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar for a shot at his title. However, with the champ indefinitely sidelined, and unless he recovers much sooner than expected, it is likely the UFC will implement another interim title for the heavyweight division.
