It was supposed to be Alistair Overeem stepping in against Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 on May 26 in Las Vegas, but a failed drug test later and now Frank Mir has stepped up for a shot at the UFC heavyweight championship.

Any drama building up between dos Santos and Overeem is long gone, but that’s not to say there isn’t a backstory to the new match-up, as Mir, in his last fight broke the arm of Junior dos Santos’ mentor and coach Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

UFC Primetime, in a three-part build-up to the fight, takes us behind the scenes as JDS and Mir prepare for their UFC heavyweight title showdown at UFC 146.
