Brock Lesnar Vs Cain Velasquez
November 13, 2011 by staff
Brock Lesnar Vs Cain Velasquez, It was supposed to go down as one of the greatest fights in recent history. Cain Velasquez, in his first title defense after claiming the UFC Heavyweight Title from Brock Lesnar, was confident that he would continue his undefeated streak against his challenger, Junior dos Santos. November 12, 2011 will go down in history, however, not for the reasons first believed.
In stunning fashion, dos Santos landed a massive right hand to Velasquez’s left ear, which completely eliminated his equilibrium, flooring him. dos Santos then delivered a ten-punch tirade, calling a stoppage by John McCarthy at 1:04 in the first round.
With all the hype and media coverage leading up to the first UFC event held on the Fox network, the stunning end to the televised, single bout caused more than a few fans to walk away in total awe. The hour-long event, featuring 30 minutes of buildup before the fight, left much to be desired from a production standpoint. From Lesnar’s continued rematch babble to UFC head executive Dana White’s overly-exuberant commentary, the night was filled with expectations of greatness. Although dos Santos delivered just that, the rest of the televised event failed to capture the aura that the hype implied.
For dos Santos, the realization of becoming a champion is something which could propel him to UFC superstar, instantaneously. I wasn’t a fluke victory. In mixed martial arts, all it takes is the right strike at the right time. Junior happened to use it at the precise moment.
After the fight, Velasquez apologized to his family, fans and viewers. There was nothing to be apologetic for. Professional fighters train for every conceivable scenario when working toward a bout. There are, however, situations which cannot be adequately prepared for. This was one such case.
Looking ahead, Junior dos Santos will have some time to enjoy being champion, as he isn’t scheduled to face an opponent until after the conclusion of the Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem fight, scheduled for next month. Regardless of how that bout concludes, dos Santos will have another incredible fight to prepare for. If tonight’s fight is any indication, he will be more than ready for the challenge.
