After Alistair Overeem failed his pre-UFC 146 drug test earlier this week fans all over the country assumed Frank Mir would get the title shot against Junior Dos Santos next month. But with a single tweet the UFC President, Dana White shut down that rumor.
@jimbefc Mir vs Cain will happen
— Dana White (@danawhite) April 7, 2012
With a 3 fight win streak Mir would be the logical choice to face the champ but apparently White has other plans for Dos Santos. Other names have emerged like Mark Hunt, who is enjoying a nice comeback with his own 3 fight win streak. Dan Henderson has been a name that has popped up but he has only fought at heavyweight once in his career. A win over Fedor Emelianenko could have him in the running for the fight though. Fedor is another intriguing possibilty but it’s doubtful the UFC would bring him given their history.
