UFC’s Historic Heavyweight Clash

The UFC recently made the very interesting and unprecedented announcement that all 5 fights on the main card of UFC 146 will be in the heavyweight division. In addition to the highly anticipated showdown between current UFC champion Junior Dos Santos and former Strikeforce, Dream, and K-1 champion Alistair Overeem fans will be treated to the number one contender bout between Cain Velazquez and Frank Mir. All told, 9 of the 10 heavyweight fighters on the main card are ranked in the top 25 in the world. This is great news for the heavyweight division, which in the past has been viewed as one of the weaker divisions in terms of depth. Suddenly though, for the first time in a long time, the heavyweight division is filled with young, athletic rising stars and seasoned veterans. Don’t be surprised to see the addition of Daniel Cormier and Josh Barnett to the UFC roster in the very near future as well. Although UFC 146 is still a ways off it’s never too early to start building the excitement. Check out this intense UFC 146 trailer, and get ready for the return of the heavyweight division.
