UFC 141: The Real Winners and Losers from Lesnar vs. Overeem

The UFC has been promoting UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem as “the biggest fight of the year” and after two heavyweights weighed in at a combined 529 pounds, they were right.

The event featured Lesnar’s return after over year-long bout with diverticulitis. The former champion had battled the disease before, but finally received surgery to fix it for good. He claimed he was back and he would need to prove it against one of the top heavyweights in the world, Alistair Overeem.

Speaking of Overeem, UFC 141 also featured Octagon debut of the former Strikeforce, Dream and K-1 champion. “The Reem” is perhaps the best striker in the heavyweight division and the contrast between his and Lesnar’s styles made for a very intriguing fight.

In the end, it was Overeem who shocked the world by sending Lesnar into retirement with a crazy knockout win.

But although “The Reem” might have been the big winner from the night, he wasn’t the only winner. In fact, many of the real winners and losers from tonight’s event weren’t even fighting on the card.

Here were the real winners and losers from UFC 141.
