The Next Opponent For Brock Lesnar Is...

Speculation is now running rampant as to who the next opponent will be for U.F.C. Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. Most fans and U.F.C. President Dana White want Fedor Emelianenko to create an "irresistible force versus immovable object dream matchup." The trouble is that the Russian is under contract with U.F.C.'s rival promotion, Affliction, although he has one more match before his contract expires. Fedor will be defending his W.A.M.M.A. Heavyweight title against former U.F.C. Heavyweight Champion Josh Barnett on August 1, at Affliction: Trilogy.
