Dos Santos Gets New Foe for UFC 146

JDS defends heavyweight crown against Frank Mir on May 26...
Following Friday's Ultimate Fighter Live in Las Vegas, UFC President Dana White took to Twitter to announce a change in the UFC 146 main event on May 26th.

"Taking off to Atlanta!!!!" wrote White, referring to tonight's UFC 145 event in Georgia. "May 26th is now Mir vs JDS for the HW title in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand."

The insertion of two-time heavyweight boss Frank Mir into the title fight against current champion Junior dos Santos comes after previous challenger Alistair Overeem's status for the MGM Grand Garden Arena fight was placed in limbo pending a licensure hearing in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission on April 24th, where a pre-fight drug test will be discussed.

Stay tuned for more updates to the UFC 146 lineup, as Mir's original opponent for the event, former champ Cain Velasquez, will remain on the card against a foe to be determined.
