The biggest fight of both decorated wrestlers' respective UFC careers, and perhaps the perfect example of technique and a cool head prevailing against raw power and ferocious drive.
From the word go Lesnar was the modern sport incarnation of his viking ancestors, streaking across the cage in a fury fueled attempt to drive Velasquez to the canvas with his signature double leg dump. Unsuccessful in his take-down attempt, Lesnar surprised his unsuspecting opponent with a flying knee to the ribs.
Lesnar then secured several take-downs that Velasquez would simply bounce right back up from, eventually getting a take-down of his own and raining dominant ground and pound upon 'The Beast Incarnate'. After several heavy shots landed to Lesnar's abdomen and temples, he rose to his feet only to be blasted across the Octagon by Velasquez's merciless uppercut, followed by a crippling knee to Lesnar's sternum and a TKO ground and pound victory for Velasquez.
