LESNAR VS OVEREEM
Ah yes the event that would be sold as the biggest heavyweight fight of all time [that is of course since the last time they said it, and would say again]. Overeem was debuting in the UFC after coming over from Strikeforce [saw his last fight there live in Dallas here in Texas] and he was going against big Brock Lesnar. Also there was the big grudge match between Donald Cerrone against Nate Diaz [can't stand him or his brother.]
1.NAM PHAN VS JIMY HETTES-the first round was all Hettes as he attacked from the beginning displaying excellent accuracy with his strikes. That accuracy also includes his ground strikes which is very impressive. He takes him down, slams him, and beats on him for most of the round, great showing from Jimy. The second round is pretty much the same but like the last Nam is game for it all, he never gives up. Jimy keeps using his Judo to get Nam down. From there you can see that this man is really very good with Jiu-Jitsu, this guy looks much better than a purple belt. The third round is even more impressive from both guys as Jimy dominates once again and Nam shows his heart. In the end Jimy takes a big UD.
2.VLADIMIR MATYUSHENKO VS ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON-this one would see an up and comer in Alex taking on a veteran in Vlad. This fight lasts only a round with Alex using his range very well. Vlad attacks most of the time looking for that right hand. In the end that moving forward attack costs him as he walks right into a stiff jab knocking him to the ground. From there Alex jumps on him and gets the TKO victory.
3.JON FITCH VS JOHNY HENDRICKS-the next fight ended up being the most surprising of the night.Read more ›
Nam Phan and Jimy Hettes opened the night in what would go on to become a pretty one-sided fight. Phan demonstrated in his last fight some very technical boxing in a winning effort against Leonard Garcia while Hettes was coming off a successful debut four months earlier. It was an interesting setup for the fight, being something of a style against style bout with Phan's technical standup going against Hettes and his judo and ground game. Like I said, the bout is pretty one sided with one fighter's style just being too much for the other. There are plenty of points where I thought it would be over but the losing fighter showed a tremendous amount of heart and survived until a unanimous judges decision.
Next was octagon veteran Vladimir Matyushenko taking on rising star Alexander Gustafsson. Most fans will recognize Matyushenko as a fighter who has always been so close to the top of the division losing out only to the best of the best but always proving to be a dangerous fighter with some explosive power in his fists. Then there's Gustafsson. A lot of casual fans won't be able to pick him out from a lineup or even recognize too many of the people who he has left in his path, besides Matt Hamill and Phil Davis, but he's becoming something of the next Jon Jones of the light heavyweight division.Read more ›

COUNTDOWN TO UFC 141
Another thing that erked me were fans of his screaming about how after Lesnar retired from the UFC he should be inducted into the UFC hall of fame. Why should he be inducted? Because he was a big draw and generated a lot of revenue for Zuffa? In no way did or does Lesnar deserve to be apart of the UFC legends roster. Lets see why.....
His debut was against Frank Mir who I'm sorry to say is like a middle man of the heavyweight division, he isn't the worst but he isn't the best. Frank was able to luckily get a hold of one of Brock's legs and get a submission after getting beat up by Brock. Inexperience was Lesnars biggest problem and downfall in his debut.
He than faced Heath Herring who was mediocre and on his way out of the organization. Lesnar with his size and strength bullied Herring around the octagon as he should have and got his first UFC win ultimately getting him a title shot with only 2 fights in the organization. No doubt his star power and a shallow division at the time got him his shot.
He went on to face Randy Couture for the heavyweight belt. Randy being way to old and undersized really had no business being in there with the over sized Lesnar but Couture was a bit of a miracle man and was known for his underdog status.Read more ›
