Now that Strikeforce’s Heavyweight Grand Prix has finally come to its conclusion, it is time for Zuffa, LLC to focus on promoting the 265-pounders who will be competing in this Saturday’s pay-per-view broadcast.
To help hype this weekend’s show, the planet’s most prestigious mixed martial arts organization has released an old school-themed video featuring the card’s key participants.
“UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir” takes place May 26th and is headlines by a heavyweight title tilt between champion Junior dos Santos (Pictured) and Frank Mir.
The clip was clearly produced before Mark Hunt was forced to withdraw from his scrap against Stefan Struve. Hunt has been subsequently replaced by former Strikeforce slugger Lavar Johnson.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the shindig.
