UFC 146 is now set to be the biggest heavyweight card in UFC history with the addition of Stefan Struve vs. Mark Hunt. This makes the show's main card a five heavyweight bout affair, something completely new for the UFC.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports reports:

For the first time in UFC history, the main card will consist of five heavyweight bouts, putting about a ton-and-a-quarter of heavyweights into the cage in a two-hour span. UFC 28 featured four heavyweight bouts, but White was able to top it for UFC 146 when he finalized a bout between Stefan Struve and Mark Hunt that is expected to open the pay-per-view broadcast.

Struve vs. Hunt joins Alistair Overeem vs. Junior dos Santos for the heavyweight championship, Cain Velasquez vs. Frank Mir, Roy Nelson vs. Antonio Silva and Shane del Rosario vs. Gabriel Gonzaga.

It will be a huge night of fights and, amazingly, it appears that we have five heavyweight fights on one card that are all competitive and shouldn't feature lumbering, gassed out big men.
