Brock Lesnar went from being the prototypical pro wrestling 'Heel' to coming back from adversity (in life and in the octagon) to win over the crowd, be humble, and 'turn Face'.
Carwin can look at what he did wrong, work on his cardio issues and make another title run. And to be quite honest, after Lesnars performance saturday night, I truly believe Cain Velasquez (the #1 contender) has the better striking, grappling & cardio to put Brock away.
Chris Leben def. Yoshihiro Akiyama via submission (triangle choke) - Round 3, 4:40 - Akiyama needs to fix his cardio issues. Maybe he needs to drop to 170. I t was very cool to see Leben get hurt and still come at Akiyama like a zombie.
Chris Lytle def. Matt Brown via submission (armbar) - Round 2, 2:02 - This one went down pretty much how I though it would. Great grappling from both guys. Lytle always makes it harder on himself than it needs to be, but in the end, he was the better fighter. George Sotiropoulos def. Kurt Pellegrino via decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) - Again, this is exactly what I thought would happen. Sotiropoulos hustled Pellegrino and 'Batman' had no answers.
Stephan Bonnar def. Krzysztof Soszynski via TKO (strikes) - Round 2, 3:08 - At least Dana White can now justify keeping Bonnar on payroll.Brendan Schuab def. Chris Tuchscherer via TKO (punches) - Round 1, 1:07
Ricardo Romero def. Seth Petruzelli via submission (armbar) - Round 2, 3:05
Kendall Grove def. Goran Reljic via split decision (28-29, 30-27, 29-28)
Gerald Harris def. David Branch via knockout (slam) - Round 3, 2:35 - Harris is steadily improving & should get some main card love hopefully. I want to see more from Branch as well. I'm always excited to see a guy who will try a flying triangle or flying guard, even if that was his undoing against Harris.
Daniel Roberts def. Forrest Petz via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28)
Jon Madsen def. Karlos Vemola via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
