Shane Carwin has confirmed rumors that he and Frank Mir will fight for the UFC interim heavyweight championship at UFC 111 on March 27.

"I'm excited to have an opponent confirmed and I have a lot of respect for Frank Mir. This will be my first fight against a south paw and my camp is under way to accommodate Frank as my opponent."

There's still no word on if and when Brock Lesnar will be able to fight again, but it's thought to be sometime in the second half of 2010.
