UFC on FOX results: Brock Lesnar steals the show as an analyst

UFC on FOX 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" took place last night (Sat., Nov. 12, 2011) from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, and featured a heavyweight championship fight pitting Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos.

The latter knocked out the former in just 64 seconds, planting him with a big overhand right before finishing the job just seconds later. It was a thrilling, albeit short, conclusion to a heavily hyped match-up in the UFC's debut on network television.

But the real star of the show was wearing a suit and analyzing the bout both pre and post-fight up in the booth alongside Dana White and Curt Menefee -- Brock Lesnar.

From the very first moment he showed up on the FOX set, Lesnar's presence commanded all the attention he so rightfully deserves. The 6'3'' 278-pound behemoth has an effect not unlike gravity. Everything and everyone is naturally drawn to him, like him or not.

All the better was his poise and composure, something White seemed to struggle with. Lesnar was clear and concise while making plenty of solid points and thoughtful analysis of the action. Most importantly, though, and perhaps most impressively, he successfully promoted both himself and his upcoming fight on Dec. 30 against Alistair Overeem at UFC 141 without allowing that to become the focal point of the broadcast.

In short, he stole the show.

Check out the video of White and Lesnar, along with host Curt Menefee, breaking down dos Santos' big win after the jump and see for yourself.
