A victorious Frank Mir at UFC 81

Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir is going to get another crack at the title when he replaces Alistair Overeem at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas. He will challenger current champion Junior dos Santos in the main event of an all-heavyweight main card.

Mir is currently riding a three-fight winning streak, defeating the likes of Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic, Roy Nelson, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogeuira, making him the obvious choice to step in when Overeem was removed due to his recent issues regarding a drug test in Nevada.

Mir recently join Todd Harris on UFC Tonight to talk about stepping in to face dos Santos at UFC 146 and also what he thinks about Overeem’s situation and whether or not the former Dream and Strikeforce champion should get a second chance.
