Default Mir/Velasquez

Verbal agreements are in for a No. 1 contender match between former UFC world heavyweight champions Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez at UFC 146, May 26 in Las Vegas,Ē UFC president Dana White said.

The heavyweights will be out in full force at UFC 146, as former UFC heavyweight champions, Cain Velasquez and Frank Mir are now set to meet, with the winner getting a UFC heavyweight title shot at a later date. The news comes via FoxSports.com.

Cain Velasquez is coming off his first career loss, as he was knocked out by Junior Dos Santos this past November during the UFCís kick off show on Fox. The fight was Cainís first fight back since he won the title from Brock Lesnar at UFC 121, and also his first fight back after a long layoff from shoulder surgery. Without question, Cain will be looking to make a statement by beating Mir, and pushing himself back into title contention.

Frank Mir is coming off one of the most stunning submission wins in the UFC, as he broke the arm of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 140. The win brought Mirís win streak to three, as his streak has also included the likes of Roy Nelson, and Mirko Cro Cop. Mir hasnít held the UFC heavyweight title, since he lost his interim belt to Brock Lesnar, but if he can get by Velazquez, heíll only be one step away from reclaiming UFC gold.

UFC 146 takes place May 26th from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and is headline by a UFC heavyweight title fight featuring Junior Dos Santos and Alistair Overeem.

This is a good fight, but I'm rolling with the Arizona State Sun-Devil, Mr Velasquez.

Yeah I kind of agree with you but Franks standup has improved and we really dont know how Cain will do on his back if Frank is able to take him down.
