Video: Junior dos Santos is looking to knock out Frank Mir at UFC 146

"Overeem was replaced by Frank Mir and I think it's a good thing for me because if I had to have someone to replace Overeem, it's Frank Mir. But I have to change a lot in my training now because Frank Mir is south paw and he likes jiu-jitsu, he's a black belt. So I have to change a little bit in my camp. But that's it. I'm a fighter and I will be looking for the knockout. It doesn't matter who my opponent is."

Shocker! UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos will be looking to knock out Frank Mir when the two collide for "Cigano's" 265-pound strap at UFC 146 on Sat., May 26, 2012, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Brazilian bomber recognizes, however, that he's got a few changes to make in preparation for his first title defense, namely making sure his ground game is tight in the event the fight hits the floor where Mir, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt, is the most dangerous. Then again, the former champion has already said he believes he's a better boxer than dos Santos so maybe we'll see a stand up war. No complaints here.
