Still, the replacement bout between dos Santos and former champ Frank Mir is still plenty intriguing. Intriguing enough, anyway, to warrant the filming of a UFC Primetime special surrounding the new main event.
The three-episode miniseries will kick off next Friday, May 11, at 11PM ET on FX; the two subsequent episodes will air at the same time on the following Fridays, May 18 and 25.
UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 26, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In addition to the heavyweight title fight featured in the main event, the main card will host nothing but heavyweight bouts between most of the division's top competitors.
