UFC 146 : Dos Santos vs Mir ; Mir Loses via TKO Strikes

In Junior Dos Santos first title defense fight since winning the heavyweight crown, he came out with a strategy to stand with Mir in UFC 146 ,and during an early scramble Mir went for a heel pick but JDS was able to brush it off and escape the attempt by Mir. After a few ” feeling out ” shots by the heavyweight champ, Dos Santos turned up the heat at the end of round 1 staggering the former champ and using his boxing to disorient Frank Mir.


After the start of the second round Dos Santos again with his crisp boxing made Mir pay for the Nogueira fight , at one point letting Mir get up in what looked to be a chance to stop the fight when JDS had Mir on the ground , pounding at his head, then letting him get back up to his feet.

After toying with Mir, Dos Santos looked to finish in true boxing fashion and landed a straight right onto Mir’s temple dazing the BJJ black belt , and then swarming onto him , at which point Herb Dean had seen enough and called the fight over.
