In cased you missed any or all of it last night (May 11, 2012), here is the first of three episodes of the "all access" behind-the-scenes look at the UFC 146 main event between Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and FX collaborated for the latest "Primetime" series, which follows Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos as he prepares to fight former division kingpin and de facto number one contender, Frank Mir, in the main event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 26, 2012.
Unsurprisingly, the first episode focuses on the triangular relationship between dos Santos, Mir and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, who is "Cigano's" mentor and idle as he came up through mixed martial arts (MMA). Of course, in his last fight, Mir submitted "Big Nog" with an arm-breaking kimura.
Surprisingly, no real mention of Alistair Overeem and his removal from the main event because of elevated testosterone levels detected in a surprise drug test. On the contrary, the production -- for now -- frames Mir as the undisputed, first choice contender who earned the distinction outright.
Not really sure it matters, just an observation.
Episodes two and three of UFC 146 "Primetime" will air on May 18 and May 25, respectively, also on FX. Get up to speed on the reaction to episode one of UFC 146 "Primetime" click here.
