UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos has been training for several months to make his first title defense. “Cigano” and Frank Mir will collide in the main event of UFC 146 this Saturday night. Originally, dos Santos was scheduled to meet Alistair Overeem, but Mir was selected as the replacement after concern started to grow about whether Overeem would be licensed for the bout.
The 27-year old recently allowed complete access to his fight camp as part of the UFC’s Inside My Fight Camp series where he can be seen training for the upcoming bout.
“Out of all of the UFC heavyweights, I think Frank Mir was the most qualified,” said Dos Santos of his opponent. Mir is a former heavyweight champion himself and defeated the mentor and training partner of Dos Santos, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, last year.
