    UFC 141 Lesnar vs Overeem

    You have the wrestling ability of Brock Lesnar versus the lethal striking of Alistair Overeem. I think it's clear now that Brock Lesnar cannot take a punch and if he can't overpower an opponent then he really doesn't have much to offer. Since Lesnar doesn't really have much of a stand up game it's hard for him to set up any kind of takedown where he is most dangerous. Lesnar is so strong on the ground that he'll be able to keep Overeem on his back if he ever gets to that point. On the other hand Overeem is smart enough to know to keep the fight standing. Unfortunately for Lesnar, Overeem is quick enough and strong enough not to have Lesnar take him down. Too bad for Brock Lesnar, it's like he's being fed to the wolves but it will be fun to see Lesnar get knocked out!

    Looks like the fight was last night:

    Brock Lesnar retires after UFC 141 loss

    LAS VEGAS -- Brock Lesnar took one last kick to his stomach and crumpled at the side of the cage, unable to fight back when Alistair Overeem pounced.

    Lesnar had been finished by a 6-foot-5 Dutch kick boxer in the first round at UFC 141. A few minutes later, the UFC's former heavyweight champion finished his own meteoric mixed martial arts career.

    Lesnar retired from the UFC after Overeem stopped him with one vicious kick to the body at 2:26 of the first round in their heavyweight bout Friday night, leaving the UFC heading into 2012 without its biggest pay-per-view star.

    "This is the last time you'll see me in the octagon," Lesnar said.

    Largely thanks to his fame from a career in pro wrestling, the hulking Lesnar (5-3) played a significant role in expanding the UFC's profile and fan base over the past four years. He beat Randy Couture in 2008 to win the heavyweight title, defending it twice before losing the belt to Cain Velasquez last year.

    But Lesnar has fought just three times in the past 2½ years while dealing with bouts of a lower-intestinal ailment that nearly killed him. The accumulation of pain and rehabilitation finally undid Lesnar, whose famed strength and stubbornness couldn't overcome diverticulitis.

    "I've had a really difficult couple of years with my disease, and I'm going to officially say tonight is the last time," Lesnar said.

    Lesnar's return from a 14-month injury absence was a short, one-sided beating. After taking damage from two knee blows early on, he couldn't recover from a kick to the liver from Overeem (36-11), who made a stellar UFC debut despite getting cut near his right eye by a punch from Lesnar.

    The 34-year-old Lesnar's announcement stunned fans who already realized he faced a difficult matchup in the UFC's traditional end-of-the-year event in its hometown. The matchup was a classic MMA clash of styles, with Lesnar's brute wrestling contrasting sharply with Overeem's vicious striking.

    "I had no idea he would do that, (but) am I surprised? No," UFC President Dana White said. "Brock Lesnar has made a lot of money in his career and has achieved a lot of things. ... He brought a lot of excitement to the heavyweight division. What he accomplished in a short amount of time is amazing, but I get it. It doesn't shock me."

    Overeem is three years younger but much more experienced than Lesnar, hurting the former champion at least twice earlier in the round while Lesnar failed in his attempt at a one-legged takedown.

    "I promised my wife and my kids if I won this fight, I would get a title shot, and that would be my last fight," Lesnar said. "But if I lost tonight ... you've been great."

    Overeem will get the next shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, who watched from a seat near the octagon.

    Overeem is a champion kick boxer who has fought in multiple promotions over the past decade, winning titles in Dream and Strikeforce with nearly unbeatable striking and size. He joined the UFC in September, finally presenting his formidable skills and intimidating physique to the sport's largest audience.

    "My experience in UFC was, it's huge," Overeem said. "I think it's like 100 times bigger than Strikeforce. K-1 (kick boxing) is big, but this is a lot bigger. I was a little bit blown away, still am. I loved every second of it."

    White might have given an immediate title shot to Overeem if the timing had been better, but Dos Santos only claimed Velasquez's belt in early November. Overeem welcomed a debut against Lesnar, even guaranteeing a knockout in the first two rounds.

    "First or second round, I promised," Overeem said.

    Lesnar hadn't fought since losing his heavyweight belt to Velasquez in October 2010, cancelling a bout against Dos Santos last June in Vancouver after another flare-up of diverticulitis. The former NCAA wrestling champion and fake WWE wrestler kept his unparalleled popularity during his recovery, and Lesnar used the time off to modify both his diet and his standup game, attempting to improve his biggest weakness.

    As it turned out, Lesnar couldn't improve enough to contend with the supremely skilled Overeem, who embraced Lesnar afterward.

    Good progress you two! Now why don't you two apply the same logic to hockey and try to come back to the exact same conclusion.

    This was only a one day loss, for the Leafs its been almost 50 years. So if you two know nothing about the UFC then you really don't know fuckall about hockey.

    You're calling me a troublemaker because I said that you don't know much about hockey, don't you say the samething to Rumple all the time? So why you crying old man?

    UFC is about skills, not about being a beast. Brock was a beast and he failed

    Ahhh yes, a New Year yet some things stay the same. Still drunk from celebrating when you wrote that because it makes zero sense?

    Why does a simple little thing like someone saying they do not really follow the UFC all that much set you off? Go over to the NHL thread and say you do not follow hockey if ya want, no one would care and for sure no one would post a comment like you did.

    PS, got any of those laptops left? I ONLY want one if the serial numbers are still intact and in original box. PM me if you do you old lovable lovemaker you. Happy New Year buddy.
