The heavyweight title fight between Junior Dos Santos and Alistair Overeem is without a doubt one of the most highly anticipated matchups of the year.

UFC 146 is set to go down on May 26 at Las Vegas Nevada’s MGM Grand Garden Arena. The heavyweight title fighter between Alistair Overeem and Junior Dos Santos will serve as the evenings main event.

The first episode in the three-part series is set to air on May 11, at 11 p.m. ET/PT and the following episodes will air in the same timeslot each week following. (May 18 & 25)

This will mark the third installment of the Primetime series on FX, the first of which was the highly acclaimed Diaz vs. Condit special and the second is the yet to be aired “UFC 145: Evans vs. Jones” Primetime special.
