In response to a fan pleading not to “break up” the Frank Mir vs. Cain Velasquez heavyweight co-main event at UFC 146 in the wake of Alistair Overeem’s positive drug test, Dana White confirmed on Twitter that Mir-Velasquez will still happen… I think. Mir was believed to be the front runner to replace Overeem (in the likely event that a replacement will be needed), however that essentially rules Mir (and Cain) out unless Dana meant it would happen at a later date.

For the sake of argument though, let’s assume he means it will still happen at UFC 146. If not Mir or Velasquez, then who?
