Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) held its traditional pre-fight press conference earlier today (May 24, 2012) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, home to the UFC 146 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Saturday night (May 26) in "Sin City."

Leading the charge were the UFC 146 headliners, Junior dos Santos vs. Frank Mir. "Cigano" puts his heavyweight championship on the line against the former titleholder in the main event of the evening, but that doesn't mean they couldn't give us a sneak peek of what to expect this weekend.
