UFC 141: " Lesnar vs. Overeem" took place last night (Fri., Dec. 30, 2011) from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, featuring Alistair Overeem earning a crack at Junior dos Santos heavyweight title by beating down Brock Lesnar in the first round and sending the big man into retirement.
Remember when "The Reem" promised to send him back to WWE? He made good on it.
And a big fat bonus check for $75,000.
In other action, Johny Hendricks catapulted himself up the welterweight ladder by knocking out perennial top contender Jon Fitch in just 12 seconds while Jim Hettes impressed all with a dominant decision victory over Nam Phan. Finally, Alexander Gustafsson continued his ascension through the 205-pound ranks with a first round stoppage of veteran Vladimir Matyushenko.
