Frank Mir Expects A Fight When He Meets Junior Dos Santos At UFC 146

Frank Mir is a former UFC heavyweight champion.

So, Mir knows as good as anyone out there what it takes to wear UFC gold and defend it.

On May 26, Mir will attempt to take back the title he once wore when he meets current UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos in the main event of UFC 146 from Las Vegas.

In a recent interview with the Brazilian news outlet Tatame, Mir discussed dos Santos and the challenge that “Cigano” presents.

“It’s our first fight and I guess he’s one of the most dangerous strikers I’ve ever fought. His strongest point is boxing.”

Mir doesn’t believe that dos Santos will be too concerned with trying to avenge the two losses that his mentor, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, has suffered against Mir, adding, “he wants to remin as the champion.”
