Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir believes that the winner of Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin at UFC 131 in June is the deserving No. 1 contender in the UFC heavyweight division. But he also believes, especially since Brock Lesnar is currently removed from the picture, that his fight with Roy Nelson at UFC 130 on Saturday night will determine the clear No. 2 contender.

They are friends before and will be after the fight, both men seeing this as nothing more than competition, but Mir is going to be looking to take Nelson out on Saturday night and take that next step back towards the belt he once wore around his waist.
