A year marked by outstanding growth for MMA ended with the retirement of a fighter largely responsible for the growth of the sport. In the UFC's final event of 2011, Brock Lesnar called it quits after a quick defeat at the hands of former Strikeforce champion Alistair Overeem.
While Lesnar may never step into the Octagon again, the rest of UFC 141's competitors are likely to continue competing under the UFC banner. Lesnar's opponent, Overeem, even earned a title shot with his victory on Friday.
Aside from Lesnar, here are the bouts that the rest of the UFC 141 fighters should be scheduled for next.
