After a loss to Alistair Overeem, Brock Lesnar has retired from the UFC….Lesnar has quit and he is done fighting MMA fights….It is over, as Lesnar told a stunned crowd from his knees last night, that he is done…..”It is over and Brock Lesnar is finished with UFC competition”…..
I still can’t believe it….Not shocked that he lost, but shocked that after it was all over, he quit the sport…..Funny as all this goes, but if you look closely at the numbers, Brock Lesnar(Minnesota Golden Gophers[NCAA]/WWE/UFC-MMA)…..He stands at 6’5 and weighs 265…..Brock Stadnik(Western Guilford/South Carolina Gamecocks-NCAA)…..He stands at 6’5 and weighs 270……
From Brock Lesnar’s bout last night in Las Vegas and at www.espn.com…..
LAS VEGAS — Brock Lesnar took one last kick to his stomach and crumpled at the side of the cage, unable to fight back when Alistair Overeem pounced.
Lesnar had been finished by a 6-foot-5 Dutch kick boxer in the first round at UFC 141. A few minutes later, the UFC’s former heavyweight champion finished his own meteoric mixed martial arts career.
Lesnar retired from the UFC after Overeem stopped him with one vicious kick to the body at 2:26 of the first round in their heavyweight bout Friday night, leaving the UFC heading into 2012 without its biggest pay-per-view star.
“This is the last time you’ll see me in the octagon,” Lesnar said.
