A former UFC heavyweight champion will be the next No. 1 contender for the belt, and we'll find out who that is at UFC 146.

“Verbal agreements are in for a No. 1 contender match between former UFC world heavyweight champions Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez at UFC 146, May 26 in Las Vegas,” UFC president Dana White said.

The fight will be part of a card that pits current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos against Alistair Overeem in the UFC 146 main event. The winner of that fight will know right away who he'll be facing, either Velasquez or Mir...

This card is straight nasty. Cant wait for it.
I like this fight for #1 contender.
I think Mir gives a better fight than people think.

i can see Mir pulling off the "upset"

why would they stack this event at such a small venue? any hockey/basketball arena that holds 16,000+ will easily sell out and get a shitload more gate revenue.

Very nice card. Here I was hoping just for a tito vs forrest co main. And not only did I get mir vs velasquez but also big foot vs nelson. This could be one of the best Ufc events I go to

i think if mir cant catch cain in a sub then cain either wins by ko/tko or unan decision. i think this fight will be fun to watch though

If Mir relaxes on his back and is content to wait for a submission or opening to fall straight into his lap, Cain Velasquez will punch his face in quicker than Lesnar did. Mir's been an extremely passive fighter in the past - against Carwin and against Lesnar the second time - and I can see something similar to that happening here.

Velasquez probably holds the advantage standing up, although both fighters have suspect chins.

That is a super duper stacked card and it will be completely exciting to watch but you know what? This is exactly what is wrong with the UFC. They will have a few stacked cards a year and a bunch of "crappy" ones. I really wish they would "spread it around" a little better.

Mir is one of my favorites but I cannot see him beating Junior. Junior will simply be too fast for Mir. With that said, I have to root for Cain and I hope Junior defends against Overeem.

I would like Overeem to win too but I feel Cain and Junior have unfinished business because I feel their fight needs to have closure.

I'm posting like a woman who is trying on clothes and cannot decide what she wants.

Here is what I want.

1. Cain vs JDS II
2. JDS vs Overeem
3. Cain vs Overeem
4. Hunt vs the current ufc hw champion

After all these fights, I wouldn't mind if the world ends.

gotta go mir i understand hes a underdog here but i think cains standup is vastly overrated and on the ground its a toss up to either mir gets pounded out the way he was by carwin and lesnar or he grabs a limb and its all over


war Mir

Looking in to my prosthetic crystal ball, I see this one panning out in a Carwin/Mir-like fashion.

Well, it would be pretty pointless to avatar bet someone that rarely posts in the forums.

1 - Not happening.

2 - There are a few others who've surpassed Brady on my "Most Hated" list. The avatar wouldn't phase me one bit.

3 - Not happening.
