The UFC has released a video with UFC Champion, Junior dos Santos speaking about the change of opponents. Here's what he had to say:

If you can't watch the video, check out the quotes after the jump.

"Overeem was replaced by Frank Mir and I think it's a good thing for me because if I had to have someone to replace Overeem, it's Frank Mir. But I have to change a lot in my training now because Frank Mir is south paw and he likes jiu-jitsu, he's a black belt. So I have to change a little bit in my camp. But that's it. I'm a fighter and I will be looking for the knockout. It doesn't matter who my opponent is."

Betting odds on this match up have gone up, which has Dos Santos as a massive favorite ranging from -499 to -550.
