UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos has spoken at length about how winning the divisional belt was a dream come true after growing up in abject poverty. Unfortunately for him the only “feel good” story upcoming opponent Frank Mir is concerned about is the one involving an ending with him as a three-time title-holder even though his career was nearly ended years ago in a serious motorcycle accident.

Mir spoke about his plans for Dos Santos in a preview for their headlining tilt this weekend at UFC 146 where he summed up his intentions in a single sentence, stating, “I’m gonna rain on that parade, steal the belt from him and take it home.”

The 32-year old also reaffirmed his position that Dos Santos is in serious trouble if action hits the ground.

“Stylistically this match-up is just a bad one for him,” explained the 16-5 Mir. “Granted, he’s a little bit better than boxing than I am. That’s fine. But how much better am I at jiu-jitsu than he is? I’m willing to bet that’s gap a lot larger.”
