Dan Miragliotta, being the big lug that he is, gets "Mir vs. Overeem."

The New Jersey State Athletic Control Board (NJSACB) today (Jan. 11, 2014) put the finishing touches on the upcoming UFC 169 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which takes place inside Newark's Prudential Center on Feb. 1, to coincide with Super Bowl Weekend across town.

After head counsel Nick Lembo appointed the main and co-main event judges (see them here), he later revealed that veteran referee Herb Dean would be the third man inside the Octagon for the 135-pound title fight (and UFC 149 rematch) between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber.

In addition, Keith Peterson (who made headlines for this stoppage) has been appointed to the Jose Aldo vs. Ricardo Lamas featherweight championship contest in the UFC 169 co-main. Taking charge of the heavyweight main card bout pitting Frank Mir vs. Alistair Overeem is the oft-maligned Dan Miragliotta.

Consider the i's dotted and the t's crossed.
