UFC 146 | Mir Promoted To Main Event Against JDS | UFC NEWS

April 21, 2012 1:06 am by Johanne Mitchell

UFC Boss man Dana White releases a tweet-bomb saying,“Taking off to Atlanta!!!! May 26 the Mir vs JDS for the Heavyweight title in Las Vegasat the MGM Grand”. This comes as a surprise considering the fact that Alistair Overeem who was slated to face Junior Dos Santos on May 26th at UFC 146 and is set to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission in just 4 days for testing positive for the “JUICE”

It seems the UFC brass has ultimately had a hand in deciding the matchup.   Now the fans will get to see another top heavyweight Frank Mir try his hand at the UFC heavyweight belt.

Frank Mir is no stranger to championship fights, he also has been the UFC Heavyweight Champion twice, one being an Interim Champion but champ none the less.

Mir looked great in his last bout which ended badly for his opponent Minotauro Noguiera , training partner of current UFC champ Junior Dos Santos – Mir finishes with a kimura-breaking Noguiera’s  arm.

Frank Mir’s last three fights all ended with his hand raised, with a ref stoppage (armbreak) over Minotauro, a unanimous decision over Roy“big country” Nelson and a devastating KO of Mirko Cro Cop.

We may have a fight after all ladies and gents. What say you?
