Preview surfaces for UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir

In a little more than three weeks UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos will defend his title for the first time against a man who never quite got the chance to feel that pressure after winning the gold, Frank Mir. Mir earned the strap in 2004 before having to relinquish it due to the recovery period from a devastating motorcycle accident.

Dos Santos has overcome adversity in his life as well, rising from extreme poverty to become the top heavyweight in MMA today.

Given the amount of emotion each man undoubtedly has invested in their main event match-up at UFC 146 perhaps it is fitting the UFC chose to go the route they did for a new preview promoting the May 26 bout where a stirring score accompanies highlights from the fighters’ most-recent outings as seen through the public’s eye. No bad blood, no bragging – just two of the best getting ready to go at it at one of the year’s biggest PPVs.

    I’m not crazy excited about this fight, cause I think JDS is gonna win by KO in the first 3 minutes, but I’m not bummed by it.

    Compared to the JDS-Overeem matchup we were expecting, this is a complete dud. It’ll be the 3rd consecutive title bout for Mir that he gets smashed… and for Mir–for better or worse–should be his last.
