Junior dos Santos UFC 146 weigh-insJunior dos Santos’ strategy at UFC 146 on Saturday night was to knock Frank Mir out in the second round… and he delivered.

Okay, so that wasn’t exactly the strategy; that was more the planned outcome.

But dos Santos did plan to keep his distance in round one and work Mir over from there, trying to fatigue the former champion. Then, in the second stanza, he intended to move forward more, pressuring Mir, looking for the knockout.
