Featuring an all-heavyweight main card, UFC 146 will be headlined by Junior dos Santos’ first defense of his heavyweight championship against Alistair Overeem at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Additionally, former champions Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez will collide to determine the next top contender in the division.
A former World Extreme Cagefighting titlist, Brown, 36, earned his first UFC victory in his most recent Octagon appearance, outpointing Nam Phan at UFC 133 this past August. The victory came on the heels of back-to-back losses for the American Top Team representative, as Brown dropped hard-fought decisions to Rani Yahya and Diego Nunes in January 2011. Known as one the division’s most powerful competitors, Brown holds notable career wins over Jeff Curran, Yves Edwards, Leonard Garcia and Urijah Faber.
Pineda, 26, was a two-division champion in the Texas-based Legacy Fighting Championship before receiving the call to join the UFC’s featherweight ranks. The Texan has not lost since May 2010, when he was submitted with a kneebar by Chas Skelly at Bellator 19. Since that time, Pineda has won seven consecutive fights, including his most recent outing at UFC on FX 2, in which he submitted Mackens Semerzier with a triangle armbar.view original article >>
