UFC president Dana White has just announced that they will not be waiting around any longer for Alistair Overeem. The organization has instead decided to go ahead and announce that Frank Mir will step in to fight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 on May 26.
Frank Mir was expected to fight former champ Cain Velasquez on the card. With the change in opponent, Velasquez currently stands without an opponent. Speculation of Overeem getting a second chance on the card against Velasquez, should he be approved to fight by the Nevada State Athletic Commission has now started.
We will update as news comes in.
