This weekend promises to deliver an exciting event split down the middle between Heavyweights on the UFC 146 Main Card, and the UFC 146 preliminary card which features many stars leading the fans into the PPV. With all the changes to the card from top to bottom, the UFC has had their hands full with this card, yet the extra hours they put in has produced yet another solid card. Below is the Preliminary card breakdown which is more than worth its weight in gold and should not go missed.

With the Overeem fiasco finally brought to a head, UFC 146 doesn’t have the title fight fans wanted, but it’s a title fight none-the-less. Coming in on short notice, former Heavyweight Champion Frank Mir will step up and take on the seemingly unstoppable Junior Dos Santos as the main event of this all heavyweight PPV. Heavyweight’s equal big cash for us more often than not and this card will be no exception.
Following an over five-year absence from the UFC, Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller fell the unfortunate victim to the pre-UFC hype machine, and his own media success with the MMA based reality show for MTV Bully Beatdown, when he made his long-awaited return to the UFC. Not only did Miller draw a top Middleweight for his return bout, by being matched up against Michael Bisping, but he would also have to play opposing coach for the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter reality series, that aired last year on Spike TV.
Should Mayhem Miller be allowed to step inside the octagon, again? After last Saturday night’s performance that question will certainly remain up in the air but I’d bet he will be given the opportunity to redeem himself and is given another chance to prove himself.
The lighter weights can scrap and the bantamweights and featherweights brought it tonight at the Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two new Ultimate Fighter champions were crowned and 15 of the 16 fighters that made it into the house fought on the card. Headlining the card were the coaches fighting on the finale for only the second time in the series history.
All the TUF 14 fighters made weight for tomorrow’s finale but Coach Michael Bisping had to use the towel and was still a quarter pound heavy. His opponent Jason “Mayhem” Miller made weight and told Joe Rogan that the “time for talking is over” after the weigh-ins. The lovable Bisping took is anger towards Miller out on the fans.
One of the best seasons in recent TUF history comes to a close tomorrow night in Las Vegas, Nevada where a bantamweight and featherweight season winner will be determined. After these men are given the glass plaque, six figure contract and accolades for the accomplishment, the real finale happens – Michael Bisping (21-3) vs. Jason Miller (24-7). Throughout the season, they got under each others skin and antagonized themselves with pranks, shouting and almost coming to blows, all while displaying a true passion and talent for coaching the men on their teams.
