Cain Velasquez stops Brock Lesnar in the first round to capture UFC Heavyweight Championship

The hype leading into UFC 121’s main event was focused on Cain Velasquez’s opportunity to be the first Mexican Heavvy Weigth Champion. Well, he not only accomplished that feat, he did it in dominant and impressive fashion, stopping Brock Lesnar in the first round of their Championship bout.

Lesnar came out aggressive, trying to shoot in almost immediately. Velasquez held off the attempt, but Lesnar stayed in close. He landed a couple of knees in the clinch and then completed a takedown. But Velasquez got back to his feet almost immediately.

Lesnar stayed after him, and got a double leg takedown against the cage. Velasquez popped right back to his feet, however, and after an exchange on the feet Velasquez shot in and got the takedown. He landed some hard punches on Lesnar’s back before Lesnar tried to work to his feet. As he got to his feet, he stumbled across the cage and Velasquez pounced.

Velasquez continued his assault on Lesnar against the cage. He landed shots in spots, and made sure to pick his opportunities. He bloodied and battered Lesnar, who could do nothing more but cover up against the cage, and finally Herb Dean stepped in to call a stop to the fight. The win gave the undefeated Velasquez the Championship victory at 4:12 of the first round, and he’ll now face off against Junior Dos Santos sometime in 2011.

For Lesnar, it’s back to the drawing board. But he gave Velasquez credit for being the better man on this night, and said he’d work his way back. As for Velasquez, he’ll celebrate the win with his fans, both latino and otherwise.

  1. Can we get rid of Lesnar now, please?! Just because he’s big and strong, doesn’t mean he’s tough. That was proven when Cain had him balled up in a fetal position after a couple shots, just like Carwin did.

  2. Herb Severn says:

    Well,I thought that when Lesnar first came to the UFC. But I know he had put the time in and has been training hard. Even after his sickness he made a great comeback. He does need to work on his stand up and learn that when he takes someone down to apply the pressure. He is still evolving as a martial artist and will need more time to do so. Thanks for the comment!

  3. What can you say about UFC 121. It was a superb event. Alot of energy and alot of good fights. To bad that almost all my predictions was wrong. An outstanding win for Veasquez against Brock Lesnar. I though that Brock was going to be to big for Cain. But boy was I wrong when Velasquez took Brock down and just bullied Brock around.

    In some Japanese schools, belts go from white to black belt. You get to black by years of training where the dirt eventually turns the white belt black!
