UFC 146: Dos Santos Vs. Mir Fight Card

Just a couple months ago, UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir looked like one of the most explosive fight cards in recent memory - mostly due to the fact that it wasn't subtitled "vs. Mir." No, it was "vs. Overeem," as in Alistair Overeem, the Adonis of men who steals souls with vicious knees and eats horse meat. A potential fight between Junior dos Santos and Overeem was absolutely interesting.

But that's in the past. Now, it's dos Santos taking on Frank Mir, and the fight isn't very compelling at all. Mir is great and routinely exceeds expectations, but they remain low for this one. That being said, there's definitely some interesting matchups worth noting still remaining on the card.

Cain Velasquez will be representing the Bay Area while welcoming Antonio Silva back to the UFC. There's some other Bay Area ties in action as well, including Daver Herman and Shane del Rosario on the main card and Kyle Kingsbury and Jason Miller on the prelims. Below, we've got the full fight card.
