On his official Twitter account, UFC co-owner Lorenzo Fertitta announced plans for two upcoming matches in 2012. Fertitta said Cain Velasquez-Frank Mir at heavyweight, and Tito Ortiz-Forrest Griffin III at light heavyweight, are in the works.

Fertitta did not disclose any possible dates for either bout. Fertitta held a discussion with MMA fans throughout the night, talking about possible fights, the Nick Diaz situation and the UFC in general.
