EDIT: I'm not sure if the screen capture showed up the first time I posted it so I uploaded it to photo bucket and posted it as a web image. Let me know if this shows up twice.

Dana White: Frank Mir vs Cain Velasquez UFC 146 fight 'will happen'

----------------------------------------

At least he gave it to the right man in Mir.

lol, just came on to post this. He deserves it more than anyone else and I assumed if Overeem was going to use the low epi defense then it was a guarantee he was out of the fight. Let's get it on!

As much as I want to see this fight, glad he won't get a chance after testing 14:1. That's a dangerous precedent to set.

Good fight, so sad that Overeem is out :(. Would've been a crazy card. Any guesses on who they'll put in to fight Velasquez? I have no clue since the SF tourny finishes a weeks or so before this event so it's highly doubtful the winner will get put in. Maybe Browne if he wins? That's all I can think of right now. I wonder if Overeem is granted a licence on Tuesday through some miracle they will put him in if thats possible?

Werdum is slated to fight Rothwell in June. Huge mismatch. I say Werdum takes Mir's spot. Wouldn't too radical a change in Cain's gameplan.

I think you mean Russow. Rothwell is fighting tomorrow. But I'm thinking the same thing happens.

Well at least 1 good thing comes from Murr getting the title shot, he gets murderized.

If it wasnt for the stellar undercard, i'd have no interest in this ppv with this as a headliner.

Mir was the right man for the job.

With that said, JDS KO rd 1

Glad to see Mir getting another shot at the title but I just don't see him beating Junior.

Damn you, Overeem!

oh great, we all get to see another powerful striker knock out Frank Mir.....

I'm really bummed about this.

Probably Mir's last chance at the belt.

I've always like him. I expect him to lose but here's to hoping he wins.

Dos Santos has plenty of time left.

WAR MIR!!!

Not really looking forward to this fight at all... I think it's a huge mismatch, JDS should have a pretty easy time with this one.

JDS TKO in under 3 mins.
