UFC 141 featured a main event between two mammoth men, as Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem locked horns in an attempt to earn a title shot against heavyweight king Junior dos Santos sometime in 2012. At the end of the night, "The Reem" disposed of the "Brockness Monster" with ease. So much so, in fact, that Lesnar retired from MMA.
That's not all.
Nate Diaz and Donald Cerrone provided plenty of thrills both before and during their 155-pound scrap in the co-main event of the evening. The fun kicked off with a story about an incident at a UFC gym, then Diaz knocking off "Cowboy's" hat and shoving him, then finally culminated in the fight itself.
And it was a war.
The two lightweight bangers went back and forth for three rounds until the judges declared the Stockton slugger the victor by way of unanimous decision.
Also on the card, Alexander Gustafsson continued his rise up the light heavyweight ranks with a first round knockout victory over Vladimir Matyushenko, while Johny Hendricks did the same as a welterweight with his 12 second knockout of Jon Fitch.
