* UFC 116: Lesnar vs Carwin

The much awaited heavyweight fight has finally come, I was really excited to watch this match. Shane Carwin undefeated and the UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar. First round was all Shane Carwin grounding and pounding Lesnar. Never saw Lesnar being beat up before but Lesnar did survived the first round. Second round came and Lesnar was able to takedown Carwin and mount him then finishing Carwin via arm triangle choke. It was a good fight but I really thought it would be Carwin who would win the bout. Now what's next for Lesnar? Cain Velasquez.
