Top UFC Star Pulled From 146 PPV; Frank Mir to Replace Him

Nick Paglino

Sherdog.com is reporting that Alistair Overeem, who was set to challenge Junior Dos Santos for the UFC Title at 146, has officially been pulled from the fight by Dana White and will be replaced by Frank Mir. Mir was scheduled to fight Cain Velasquez at the PPV in a number one contender's match, but that match has been scrapped due to Mir replacing Overeem.

Overeem is scheduled to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission this Tuesday, stemming from high elevated testosterone levels in his last drug test which could implicate steriod use. You can read full details by clicking on the above link.
