From wiki

UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held by Ultimate Fighting Championship. It is expected to take place on May 26, 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.[1]

For the first time in UFC history all 4 fights on the main card will be Heavyweight bouts.[2] UFC Primetime will return to promote the main event.[3]
On April 4th, 2012 it was announced that co-headliner Alistair Overeem had failed a pre-fight drug test due to a high testosterone to epitestosterone ratio. Overeem will have to appear at a Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing on April 24th in order to review his request for a license.[4]
On April 20, 2012 Dana White announced via Twitter that Junior dos Santos will face Frank Mir instead of Alistair Overeem.[5] Two days later Dana White announced via Twitter that Cain Velasquez, who was originally slated to fight Mir in the co-main event, will now face Antonio Silva.[6] Roy Nelson, who was originally scheduled to fight Silva, will remain on the card and face Gabriel Gonzaga.[7]

I really like the look of this card, the only main fight that will lack anything resembling technical combat is Struve vs Hunt as theyll be looking to just knock fuck out of each other. Am thinking:

JDS
Desperately want to say Bigfoot..........so i will  Wink Nah cant see passed Cain in this one.
Nelson (toughest choice for me by far)
Struve

Brandao
Barbosa
Miller
who cares???

Once Hardy loses he will be done with Zuffa for now, hes fallen off the rails harder that Roger Huerta.

Mir will win.  Not because he dominates, but because he will submit JDS after a mad scramble on the ground (ala Nog)

Mir is never getting him down, JDS will render him unconscious

You have way too much faith in a man who has never been tested before.  Mir is far more experienced than JDS.

Experience means little when you are as good a striker as JDS my friend. Lesnar demolished him twice, Carwin just about took his head off and big Nog had him out and didnt jump on him. None of those men have near the ability of JDS, he is a killing machine inside the octagon with his boxing and its gonna be lights out in no time!  Kiss

 mir aint a bad striker but hes not on jds level. jds fought well and deserves alot of credit. mir didnt look that determined to get it on the ground though, maybe he couldnt or thought he could hang with junior in the striking area

Thank you my friend, however it was obvious from the go that Mir would not be able to ground JDS and thus the inevitable outcome of a stand up confrontation would be Mir sleeping on the mat  Wink

Mir can hang with 2nd and 3rd tier fighters and even look like cream at times, however i have stated many times he is so far from being a top tier fighter he should give up any hopes of even a future contenders match.

As I said before, Mir is becoming outclassed with the kind of talent coming into the UFC now.
He's headed down the path of Chuck Liddel.
