Video: UFC 146 trailer for 'Dos Santos vs Mir' on May 26 in Las Vegas

Drama. But, this is the official version (not the fan-made video trailer).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has done a complete about-face to promote its upcoming Heavyweight championship showdown that wasn't meant to be prior to Alistair Overeem getting suspended for nine months for having elevated levels of testosterone in his system during a surprise drug test.

Frank Mir was inserted shortly before Overeem's hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) late last month when company president Dana White had a bad feeling about the outcome. He was right. And now Mir gets the opportunity to challenge division champion Junior dos Santos in the UFC 146 main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., May 26, 2012.

Careful what you wish for, Frank.

Dos Santos is being portrayed as a hard-hitting, one-punch knockout artist who can end any fight in an instant. That's actually exactly what he does more often than not, which could spell disaster for Mir, who has had to answer to chin concerns after (technical) knockout losses to Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, among others.

And let's remember that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira had him on Queer Street just before he nearly got his arm ripped off late last year.

In addition to the Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir marquee mixed martial arts (MMA) match up, UFC 146 will feature a reshuffled all-heavyweight pay-per-view (PPV) main card are super-sized showdowns between Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio Silva, Roy Nelson vs. Gabriel Gonzaga, Shane del Rosario vs. Stipe Miocic and Mark Hunt vs. Stefan Struve.
