Mir NEEDS guard to survive against someone that big. I was however, encouraged by Mir's head movement standing. He even had Brock backing up for a little while in the 2nd.
    Looked like Mir tried to control Lesnar with Lockdown, and ended up locking down his own hips...

    didn't watch it. just read about it. sounds like he missed a couple take downs early. Then in the second he stumbled off of a spinning backfist. He shot, Jones failed a guillotine, but had him agains the fence and switched to another choke and eventually got the sub. Blew me away. If Jake was going to lose I did NOT think it would be by sub. Jake's sub defense is usually extremely good.

    On a night when he stood alone atop the UFC heavyweight division, Brock Lesnars behavior -- not his destructive, one-sided victory against Frank Mir -- was the subject of post-fight discussion on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

    Lesnar unified the heavyweight championship in only his fifth professional appearance, as he bullied his way to a technical knockout against Mir -- the only man to defeat him -- in the UFC 100 main event. His tirade afterward -- which included a low blow to the UFCs primary sponsor, Bud Light, waving his middle fingers at the audience, taunting Mir and exposing plans for a post-fight sex romp with his wife -- drew the ire of UFC President Dana White.

    The 32-year-old Lesnar claimed he was headed out to drink a Coors Light because Bud Light would not pay him any money. One of the UFCs highest-paid fighters, he made $450,000 in disclosed pay for his TKO victory against hall of famer Randy Couture at UFC 91 in November.

    I was blown away, White said. I dont think in the history of the UFC weve had anybody do that. Its not who we are, and, to be honest, its not who he is. You hang with these guys personally, and you get to know them. If he was a dick, Id tell you right now this guy is a psycho and I dont know what Im going to do with him. Hes not. Hes a smart guy. The sponsorship thing was the craziest thing Ive ever heard in my life.

    Lesnars antics drudged up memories of his days as a World Wrestling Entertainment superstar, when showboating and pushing the envelope of taste were encouraged and profitable. White claimed he confronted the apologetic champion in his dressing room after he left the Octagon.

    Brock went so far over the top, I cant even put it into words, White said. WWE -- thats what it is. We had a talk. We talked like men, and he said he was sorry. He said, Im embarrassed by what I said. I take his word for it this time.

    Yep. Dana is far more appalled over Brock insulting a sponsor than him disrespecting the sport, his opponent, or the fans.

    Anybody who thinks Belcher was robbed is an idiot.

    Go watch the fight without bias. The stand up was pretty equal. Yes, his 2 takedowns are what won him the fight.
