SANTOS FACES TITLE HOLDER

Junior dos Santos will be facing former title holder Brock Lesnar on June 11. Junior dos Santos vs. former titleholder Brock Lesnar will take place June 11 in Vancouver at UFC 131, the promotion announced Thursday on its Ultimate Insider online program. The fight between opposing coaches on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter will decide the No. 1 contender for Velasquez.

Velasquez was supposed to face dos Santos in the spring, but the champion recently underwent surgery for a partially torn rotator cuff that will keep him shelved until summer at the earliest. Dos Santos, who hasn't fought since August, didn't want to wait that long.
