The Rallies Are Over: Frank Mir to Fight Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146

Why yes, I do like Huey Lewis and The News… Props: Las Vegas Sun

The speculation has officially ended. After ruling out Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and Mark Hunt as potential replacements for Alistair Overeem to fight heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146, Dana White has officially announced his pick. Late last night, Dana White sent out a tweet confirming that Overeem’s replacement will be none other than…Frank Mir.

Huh. How about that?

While we’re all sure that there’s a reasonable explanation for Alistair Overeem’s suspiciously high 14:1 testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio, the UFC aren’t taking any chances. Rather than waiting for Overeem to meet with the Nevada State Athletic Commission on Tuesday, “The Demolition Man” has been removed from the card entirely. Draw your own conclusions.

As for Frank Mir’s original opponent? Josh Gross is reporting Fabricio Werdum and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva are potential opponents for Cain Velasquez. For what it’s worth, Ariel Helwani is reporting that Fabricio Werdum has been ruled out as a potential opponent, and Velasquez will more than likely fight someone who already has a fight on the card. Basically, your guess is as good as ours at this point.

So what say you, Potato Nation? Will Mir vs. Dos Santos make for a compelling fight? What does this mean for Alistair Overeem? And for Cain Velasquez? Conspiracy theories, ad hominems and recklessly wild speculation to begin in three…two…one…

You guys waaaayy underestimate Mir. He's got a good shot to win this thing. JDS is one dimensional and Mir has one of the most well rounded games in the division. Mir doesn't really have a "weak chin." Hell if anyone takes a clean shot from anyone at HW they can go down. Carwin hits a lot harder than JDS, and JDS doesn't have the strenth or the wrestling to hold Mir against anything and pound him. Would not be suprised to see something along the lines of Mir vs Kongo going down in this fight.

so you put the best boxer in the heavyweight division against a weak chin submission fighter, it is jds belt regardless because the heavyweight division is talentless except for reem, hendo maybe, and travis brown.

I agree. Mir does look like he invites hookers over to his house to have sex with and then murder them nightly. Good call.

Big country just said on his twitter that he asked for if he would fight cain for number one contender and the answer is yes.

It should have been Junior Dos Santos VS Dan Henderson , Hendo has done more to earn a title shot in any division then anyone else.

Dos Santos by mo'fkn murder, mo'fkas..

Mir is going to be have strawberry jam all over his face again

Smart move by DW as far as I am concerned. If Reem were to win... how is that going to look on the UFC? The hardcore fans like us won't think any different but for mainstream it will be a black eye. Reem needs to be pulled from the main event and that card if the UFC and NSAC want to be taken seriously on their stance on PEDs. (yes I am aware that it a ratio etc. but... really.. come on.)

@Goog, Mir sells ppvs. mayb not as much as lesnar but he is a bigger draw than Dos Santos.

well at least I'll be able to see Frank Mir get his ass kicked again. That's always fun.

Potato Nation!! Let us please simply look forward to an all out, compelling blood-bath of a scrap and let us not speculate as to the UFC's 'next' move or what happens 'after'. These are two fully game fighters with every reason to get in there and kick the shit out of each other for our entertainment. Mir destroys fools sometimes and JDS? well He's champion in my eyes ever since I watched him in one of DW's early Vlogs hittin' the mitts in the background. I literally told my friend "that dude hits like that AND trains with Nog?" "Game over!" Long winded rhetorical nothings from yours truly .....


PS, MR. Mir please get as excited JUST BEFORE the bell rings on this fight as you do/have just AFTER you kick some ass?!?! Maybe Carwin caught you sleeping, maybe yadda yadda yadda, but we deserve your fully-stoked best and I mean screaming , slobbering scary "post-victory" Mir best! THE WHOLE FIGHT!!!!! WAAAARRR
HardKnockLife- April 21, 2012 at 11:06 am
Why would Dana wait this long to pull Reem from the fight? Waiting till Friday night when they would have had an answer on Tuesday? My guess is that Overeem will be cleared but giving the question marks around him the optics look bad with him fighting for a title and makes ufc look bad. Juiced Reem vs Brown Pride.
Goog- April 21, 2012 at 10:15 am
From a business standpoint, this is Dana's big fail. While I'd expect JDS to win, imagine he gets fluked and loses: How the hell does Dana sell the *next* fight? I guess Mir's record is as deserving as anyone with a 3 win streak, but DW best not be pre-counting his fortunes this summer if he has Mir in the main event a few times in a row.
Master_Betty- April 21, 2012 at 11:05 am
What's wrong with Mir as a main event? He's a bigger draw than JDS. He's a great heel, and heels draw the biggest numbers.

Mir has no chin did anyone watch his last fight. This fight wont last long 1 maybe 2 rounds tops. Good night Mir
The12ozCurls- April 21, 2012 at 10:26 am
I think anybody that gets hit in the face by a trained 250 lb. man will probably have a "suspect" chin afterwards. Unless your name is Mark Hunt - you need to swing a damn pillow case full of bricks to damage him. That being said, I agree with 1 or 2 rounds.
