UFC 141 Results: Brock Lesnar, Will He Be Remembered as a Quitter?
Last night, former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar succumbed to strikes from former K-1 World Grand Prix champion Alistair Overeem.
The Golden Glory product lit up Lesnar with knees to the body before finishing off the NCAA Division I wrestler with a kick to the midsection. A few ground-and-pound blows later and Overeem was declared the victor by way of a dominant TKO finish.
Prior to his outing with Overeem, Lesnar was on the mend from a second battle with diverticulitis, which had the hulking heavyweight sidelined for over a year after invasive surgery removed more than 12 inches of his colon.
The procedure followed a TKO loss to Cain Velasquez in October of last year in which the AKA product deftly applied a heavy stream of punches on the feet to eventually yield the stoppage and earn the heavyweight title in the process from Lesnar, who at the time was serving as the promotion's belt holder.
His match with Velasquez came just three months after Lesnar returned to the organization following his initial encounter with the digestive disease, which had him on the mend for a year as well.
Say what you will about Lesnar. Maybe his size and frame is what ultimately carried him to most, if not all of his victories, and maybe he lacked any real technique; but the man has paid his dues.
He jumped into the mixed martial arts world with intentions of becoming a world champion, and during his reign as king he was as dominant as any champion before him. Lesnar is a survivor and a fighter, but he's no quitter.
