UFC 146 'Primetime' LIVE discussion thread for 'Dos Santos vs Mir' on FX (Episode 1)

via media1.mm.ticketmaster.com

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns with its "Primetime" preview show for UFC 146: "Dos Santos vs. Mir," featuring a behind-the-scenes look as current UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos prepares to defend his title against new division number one contender Frank Mir on May 26, 2012, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Episode one premieres TONIGHT (May 11) at 11 p.m. ET on the FX Channel immediately following episode 10 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 "Live." Feel free to talk, complain, whine, boast -- whatever it is you do -- about the program in the comments section below.

Episodes two and three of "UFC Primetime" air May 18 and May 25 in the same time slot.

Mir was the beneficiary of the headlining spot when "Cigano's" original opponent, Alistair Overeem, couldn't keep his testosterone in check, leading to a nine month time out from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). The domino effect blew holes throughout the main card line-up, but UFC matchmaker Joe Silva got things all patched up and ready to roll.

If you think losing "Demolition Man" as the headliner is a disappointment, I'd ask you to watch a pair of stellar pre-fight video promos here and here, which may lead you to reconsider your position.
