This Week In MMA Link Dump

Man, it was a week filled with all type of news, but none bigger than the return of UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.  He's been given a clean bill of health and he'll return to the UFC sometime this summer to fight the winner of the Shane Carwin/Frank Mir fight.  We also cover some local events happening this weekend from the CFP: Bash At The Beach in South Carolina as well as the Battle of Rome 8 event in Georgia.  We cover the Strikeforce debacle with not being able to find Bobby Lashley an opponent that's credible(I'll have more on this later today).  We also talk about how Strikeforce can compete with the UFC by using women's MMA.  Rich Wyatt had a great interview with WEC fight Mackens Sermerzier.  We learned that Takanori Gomi will fight Kenny Florian here in Charlotte, NC at UFN 21.  Plus lots more...check it all out below.
