In all the hoopla surrounding UFC 145, Dana White made a major announcement about UFC 146 late last night - Alistair Overeem was out of his title fight with Junior dos Santos, and Frank Mir was in on May 26th. It never takes linemakers long to jump on major new fights, and this case was no different. Sportsbook.com put out their line early this morning, and JDS is a monster favorite (widget courtesy of BestFightOdds.com):

Mir had been expected to face off with Cain Velasquez in the co-main event, but now Cain will have to get a new opponent. It's not really a surprise that Junior would be this big of a favorite - Mir's chin has been cracked before, and JDS hits extremely hard. Mir has excellent skills on the ground though, most recently submitting Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira with a kimura (actually, he just snapped his arm) at UFC 140.
