“The Baddest Man on the Planet”, was defeated by Cain Velasquez. In a shocking turn of events, Velasquez is now the new UFC heavyweight champion.

According to reports, “From the opening bell until referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight last night the undefeated Velasquez dominated former champion Brock Lesnar.”
It was predicted that Lesnar would dominate the fight with a 20-pound weight advantage.

from www.espn.com:

ANAHEIM, Calif. — It might not have been Herb Dean who had to stop the unrelenting fists of Cain Velasquez to Brock Lesnar’s head. Maybe it was Lesnar who told the referee enough was enough.

It was difficult to hear over the roars of the crowd of 14,856 at the Honda Center. Lesnar didn’t show up to the postfight news conference. When UFC president Dana White was asked whether Lesnar verbally submitted, he said, “I don’t know for sure, but from what I saw, he did.” Directly after the fight, Velasquez said that Lesnar had verbally tapped, but he later said he couldn’t hear.

Either way, Velasquez’s performance was certainly dominant enough for more than one person to call for the bell before the first round was over. In a matter of 4 minutes and 12 seconds, Lesnar’s title reign was over and Velasquez became the sport’s first heavyweight champion of Mexican descent.

It was the kind of win that solidified Velasquez as not only the new champion but perhaps the new “baddest man on the planet.” The UFC had bestowed that title on Chuck Liddell and Lesnar, but the sport might soon reap the rewards if Velasquez can hold the moniker longer than his predecessors.

As much of a draw as Lesnar was at the box office and for pay-per-view buys, Velasquez opens the door to a Latino community that still favors boxing but could change alliances to follow a champion such as Velasquez, the Salinas, Calif., native who, at 28, has the potential to be the most dominant the sport has seen.

“I’ve never, ever seen anything like that,” said Tito Ortiz, who has been in the UFC since 1997. “You see Cain Velasquez move, and he looks like a 190-pound guy moving around at 240. He’s the best guy in the world right now. He actually made Brock look really, really slow.”

    Thank you Cain! Finally somebody big enough to withstand Lesnars bullrush (his only skill) and exposed his lack of technical skills.
