The May 26 event took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and was headlined by Junior dos Santos’ first defense of his heavyweight championship against former titlist Frank Mir.

The all-heavyweight main draw also saw ex-champion Cain Velasquez earn a bloody technical knockout over Antonio Silva, as Velasquez badly lacerated “Pezao” with ground-and-pound en route to the first-round stoppage.
