Lesnar may fight in November

Heavyweight Brock Lesnar may fight one more time in 2008, possibly at UFC 91 on November 15. The event will be held in Portland.

Rumored opponent is UFC veteran Cheick Kongo (12-4-1). Kongo has fought for the UFC seven times, defeating Gilbert Aldana, Christian Wellisch, Assuerio Silva, Mirko Cro Cop, and Dan Evenson. His losses were to Carmello Marrero and Heath Herring.

Lesnar (2-1) is coming off of a dominating performance over Herring at UFC 87. A Lesnar-Kongo matchup would be an MMA classic style clash, featuring a dominant wrestler against a dangerous striker.

Joe Stevenson vs. Kenny Florian has been announced for UFC 91.
