UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir — Live Main Card Results and Commentary

(Damn, Junior…give away your gameplan much? / Photo courtesy of

After a preliminary card dominated by relatively normal-sized men — borrrrring! — we’ve finally arrived at tonight’s central theme: Big sons-of-bitches. That’s right, UFC 146‘s main card features five consecutive heavyweight fights, most of which look pretty damn entertaining on paper. Can massive underdog Frank Mir pull off Impossible Career Comeback #2, or will he succumb to the buzzsaw-like boxing of Junior Dos Santos, just like so many before him? Can Lavar Johnson score two knockouts in the same month (!), or is he in over his head — figuratively, and otherwise — against Stefan Struve? And does Roy Nelson really think he’s doing himself any favors with that ratty-ass gray beard?

Live-blogging the UFC 146 main card for us is Anthony Gannon, who will be stacking round-by-round results after the jump starting at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. Refresh the page for all the latest, and throw down your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks for being here, guys.

Well, shit. Due to a poorly timed server meltdown, we weren’t able to do the liveblog tonight; our deepest apologies. Hopefully most of you caught the pay-per-view because it was entertaining as hell, and none of the five heavyweight fights made it out of the second round. In short: Junior Dos Santos is still the UFC heavyweight champion, thanks to a dominant striking performance against Frank Mir, and Cain Velasquez made Antonio Silva‘s face look bloodier than anyone’s since Joe Stevenson. The full UFC 146 results are below; we’ll talk more tomorrow.

goldie calling jds "a magic man" was funny.

all went pretty crazy, but I'm glad hardy won with a KO.
Couldn't believe Johnson lost like a bitch to struve, that shocked me.
Loved seeing the blood bath that was Bigfoots face. just cause you beat a nobody can beater like Fedor doesn't make you a good fighter, and Cain just showed that Bigfoot needs to be sent to beletor, he has no business in the UFC.
Frank Mir you talk to much, and you choke everytime there is pressure on you, and you got less of an asswhipping than I thought but still a loser like I knew.
Junior did great, hes a great fighter and a really nice guy. Extremely nice thing to bring that kid to America to see you fight. total class.

the card wasn't bad..too many early stoppages, I woulda have preferred they let em fight till someone's eyes roll backwards in their head; but hey that's just my blood thirsty inner-savage talking, it was an exciting night of finishes although Herman, Silva, Mir, and Del Rosario were way too conscious for my liking.

Excuse me, Frank, are you still fighting that invisible bear, Mr. Rogan needs to speak with you.

I honestly think if JDS landed one of those rights to Bisping he might take his head clean off...

This is the best CP liveblog I've seen in a long time. Keep up the good work, you guys.

SethF- May 26, 2012 at 8:32 pm
I guess it's okay to take part in domestic violence, as long as you don't tweet any jokes about it.
NomadRip- May 26, 2012 at 8:30 pm
Silva just dumped more blood out on the canvas than Brandao's entire body holds.
Viva Hate- May 26, 2012 at 8:30 pm
That was the most riveting reenactment of Carrie I have ever seen.
NomadRip- May 26, 2012 at 8:22 pm

NomadRip- May 26, 2012 at 8:20 pm
Well, Tiki's abusive wife showed up. She's not getting Chandellaed over it so far, anyway.

Whew! I was afraid DFW pulled the plug here because we were talking bad about "that poor girl".
Viva Hate- May 26, 2012 at 8:32 pm
My sources have an unconfirmed story that it was all an S&M night gone wrong, that poor innocent girl.
