These two men will also be featured as coaches on the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter.

There has been a lot written about this fight already and it is still six months from happening. People are questioning Lesnar and whether he is still really into MMA.

For the longest time after losing to Velasquez in October no one could get in touch with Lesnar. Now he is ready to get back in the octagon for a chance to fight for the heavyweight championship.
Junior dos Santos almost feels like "that guy who is fighting Brock Lesnar."

He hasn't really been getting a lot of talk, which is somewhat understandable because Brock is the biggest MMA star in the United States.

But fans of UFC know that this guy is the real deal and he will bring the fight to Lesnar.

While the date of the fight hasn't been made official yet it's widely expected to take place at the June 11 UFC show in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Dana White has said that they will fight at the first major event after the finale of The Ultimate Fighter, which takes place in early June.

So we know the date and we know the participants, now it is time to take a very early look at how these two fighters stack up against each other. We have broken things down into eight different categories.

We will compare and contrast how their skills match up against each other. After we get done with that we will offer a (very early) prediction for the dos Santos-Lesnar fight.
