Brock Lesnar wanted no part of the customary pre-fight touching of the gloves. He decided to leave all the glove-touching to his Mir's face.
The UFC heavyweight champion defended his title with a second-round TKO of Mir at UFC 100. The crowd at Mandalay Bay didn't seem too happy with Lesnar's winning. They booed him like crazy, even during the post-fight interview in the cage with Joe Rogan.
"Yeah, keep going, keep going," he yelled to the crowd, reverting back to his WWE days. "I'm going to go home, I'm going to drink a Coors light. That's a Coors light," he said, pointing to the Bud Light logo in the Octagon, "because Bud Light won't pay me nothing."
Lesnar (4-1) got Mir (12-4) to the ground early in the first round and then lay his montrous 265-pound plus body on him. He landed some heavy shots to Mir's face periodically. Exciting to watch? No. Powerful and dominating? Yes.
To open the second round, Lesnar knocked Mir to the ground, then let him right back up. Mir landed a good shot or two, then while in close quarters up against the Octagon, he attempted a flying knee. Mir landed the shot slightly, but fell to the ground afterward.
That proved to be Mir's downfall.
Lesnar kept Mir pinned to the ground up against the cage and unloaded with that cement block he calls a right hand until referee Herb Dean stopped the fight.
Whatever your opinions are of Lesnar, it's hard to argue his presence in the ring is anything other than overwhelming.
The scene inside Radio City: Stunned and angry and quiet. They don't seem to like Lesnar. Well, some of them at least. In fact, when Lesnar flipped the bird to the crowd at Mandalay Bay, some in the crowd here at Radio City flipped it back.
