Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar proved last night (Aug. 19, 2012) that mixed martial arts (MMA) trumps professional wrestling by defeating Triple H in the main event of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) SummerSlam 2012 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which emanated from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

He's now 1-1 since his return to the squared circle earlier this year and has three mangled wings to his credit.

After a spirited back-and-forth affair, Lesnar locked in a fight-ending Kimura, which not only forced "The Game" to tap out and lose the match, it left him with yet another broken arm. Though it's a testament to the toughness of Triple H for even coming back so soon after his first injury, considering it's the same thing that's sidelined Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for over eight months.

Wimp!

Don't expect Lesnar to appear on television for quite some time, as the WWE exploited his history of diverticulitis during last night's match.
