UFC 146 is set to be one of the best heavyweight line ups to date.
In the main event we will see the defending champ Junior Do Santos take on Frank Mir. As we all know it was supposed to be Alistair Oveream against the big Brazilian but he failed a drug test and is now no longer in the running. It is a very tough fight to call as all us UFC fans know that Mir is the best heavyweight submission artist in the world and throw in Junior’s knock out power, it makes this a great battle. Frank Mir is a Veteran and i do not say that lightly as he is still young but he has been around over ten years and beaten some of the best. I will never understand why Mir is not very popular as he seems a really nice guy. Check out the interview below.
I am a big Mir fan and hope to see him champ again, however Junior is a very respectful guy and a great champ so we shall see.
Former champ Cain Velasquez will take on tough Brazilian Antonio Silva and i presume the winner will take on either Mir or Junior. Big Roy Nelson is set to take on Dave Henman who has a great MMA record of 21-3-0. I think Dave may take this but we all know Roy has a solid chin so good luck to them both. Shane del Rosario will take on Stipe Miocic, both fighters undefeated so will be tough. Stefan Struve will face Mark Hunt, Stefan has the better record but you can never tell what will happen in the heavyweight division.
This night has our very own Dan Hardy from Nottingham taking on Duane Ludwig, both fighters have similar records and are evenly matched so good luck Dan. Undefeated Brit Paul Sass will take on Jacob Volkmann in the lightweight division. Both guys have a great Brit following and we are proud of them for keeping us Brits up at the top.
Undefeated Edson Barboza takes on Jamie Varner in Lighweight action. featherweight Darren Elkins will take on Diego Brandao. In Middleweight action CB Dolloway takes on Justin Mayhem Miller, i hope Mayhem performs better than he did against Bispin. Light Heavyweights Glover Teixeira takes on Kyle Kingsbury and in Feather Weight Mike Brown will take on Daniel Pineda. What a great line up and i think this could be one of the best shows of the year.
