Literally the biggest fight card of all time will detonate at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas on Saturday night as the Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization presents UFC 146: THE HEAVYWEIGHTS on Pay-Per-View.

 

The first ever all-heavyweight main card is headlined by UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos making his first title defense against the most successful heavyweight of all time, two-time champion Frank Mir. This titanic main event is supported by four other heavyweight collisions and, in total, 10 of division’s elite – and over 2400lbs of fighter – will be throwing leather in Las Vegas on Saturday.

 

UFC President Dana White said: “Fans have been going nuts for this all-heavyweight card. You’ve got 10 of the baddest men on the entire planet all going at it, including Junior dos Santos looking for some revenge against the man who just broke his mentor’s arm in Frank Mir. There’s going to be over 2400lbs of heavyweight on the main card – something we’ve never done in the history of the UFC. I’m looking forward to some brutal knockouts and some great submissions on Saturday night.”

 

UFC® 146: DOS SANTOS vs. MIR will be available live on Pay-Per-View at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on UFC.TV, iN DEMAND, DirecTV, DISH Network, Avail-TVN, and in Canada on BellTV, Shaw Communications, Sasktel, and Viewer’s Choice Canada for a suggested retail price of $44.99 US/$49.99 CAN for Standard Definition and $54.99 US/$59.99 CAN for High Definition.

                                                                                                                    

Reigning UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos will defend his crown against former two-time champion Frank Mir and former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez – now fully healed from his knee injury – returns to action against the dangerous Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

                              

Plus, in the first-ever all heavyweight UFC card, Roy Nelson takes on Dave Herman, unbeaten heavies Stipe Miocic and Shane Del Rosario collide and 6ft 11.5inch Stefan Struve takes on KO specialist Lavar Johnson.

 

Reigning and defending UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos said: “The excitement for this event is kind of crazy. We just did the press conference at the MGM Grand and the fans were there cheering and screaming. I am so excited to defend my belt on such a huge show.”

 

Former two-time UFC heavyweight champion and current No1 heavyweight contender Frank Mir added: “I’ve been in the UFC for longer than almost everybody; I’ve seen some great fights and have fought on some great cards. This is the biggest fight of my career. Everyone loves heavyweights, and you’ve got 10 of the baddest men on the planet all in action. Junior is a dangerous boxer, but when this hits the ground, he’s done.”

While the UFC 146 main card is loaded with roughly one ton of knockout artists and submission aces, no fight has drawn as much attention as the title tilt between the champion, dos Santos, and challenger, Overeem. Fresh off knocking out Velasquez in November to capture the title, the 28-year-old “Cigano” would love nothing more than to end the reign of terror sparked by “The Reem.” Simply put, dos Santos isn’t envisioning his run as champion being short-lived.

“My dream was to become the champion,” dos Santos said. “The minute Dana strapped that belt around my waist, my dream got bigger.  I’m not here to be a one or two-defense champion; I’m here to stay. On May 26, there’s going to be a heavyweight striking war and someone is getting knocked out.”

A devastating striker who has held world titles in organizations such as STRIKEFORCE® and DREAM, the 31-year-old Overeem (36-11) has not lost a fight in nearly five years. Owner of wins over the likes of Brock Lesnar, Fabricio Werdum, Mark Hunt and Vitor Belfort, the kickboxing star believes he has the champion’s style dissected and diffused.

“The most important objective in my life right now is to not only become the UFC heavyweight champion, but to go on and reign as champion for years,” Overeem said. “I want to be remembered as the greatest heavyweight in the history of the sport.

“Dos Santos is a very good boxer,” he continued. “I think he is the best boxer in the division and he poses some very interesting problems. But I already know how I will beat him. I will become the new UFC heavyweight champion of the world at UFC 146.”

UFC® Fighter Frank Mir Unleashes Maibock at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas

UFC® Fighter Frank Mir Unleashes Maibock at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas
Maibock returns on Friday, April 27

 The flowers are blooming and if there’s one thing synonymous with spring, its Maibock brew. Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is pleased to announce UFC® fighter Frank Mir will tap the ceremonial first keg of Maibock beer on Friday, April 27th, at 7 p.m., bringing one of Munich’s oldest beers to Sin City for the seventh year in a row.

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, Mir began studying martial arts at his father’s karate club at the ripe age of 4. He has now grown up to be one of the most accomplished heavyweights in MMA history with a UFC Heavyweight Championship and UFC Interim Heavyweight Championship under his belt. Mir currently holds the record for most victories in the heavyweight division of the UFC with 14 wins and was ranked the #4 heavyweight in the world by ESPN as of January 2012.

“I’m looking forward to tapping the first keg of Maibock at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas,” says Frank Mir. “As a Las Vegas native, I’m proud to join the list of legendary keg tappers.”

By tradition, the first barrel of Maibock is tapped at the Hofbräuhaus in the last week of April. Creamy and aromatic, Hofbräu Maibock sets the standard for all other bock beers and boasts the longest pedigree of all Munich’s bocks. Along with the keg tapping, the night will be filled with Jägermeister spankings and traditional stein-holding contests where competitors will have their chance to prove they have what it takes to hold out the one-liter filled stein the longest.
