UFC 146 will showcase the best of what the UFC heavyweight division has to offer as champion Junior Dos Santos puts his belt on the line against former two-time champion Frank Mir.

Originally, Dos Santos was supposed to face off against former Strikeforce Heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem, but when "The Reem" failed a prefight drug test, Frank Mir was promoted to the title fight. 

Some fans were up in arms in the UFC's decision to promote Mir to No.1 contender status as he had been dismantled in his last two title fights and had only shown flashes of brilliance in his last three wins. 

The selective nature of the UFC title ladder has worked for them at times, as they have created numerous memorable moments and have established countless stars; however, it has also has lent itself to dishing out title shots that are highly suspect. 

While Mir's shot may have some fans crying foul, it is nothing compared to the 10 unwarranted title shots presented.
