At the time, Lesnar was the biggest name in the game, thanks to his pro-wrestling career and a five fight winning streak in the UFC. The fact he had taken out Randy Couture durign that run didn’t hurt his status either.
But, at UFC 121, Mr. Velasquez proved to be Lesnar’s match, and he took out the massive heavyweight to become champ. You can watch the historic fight below.
Velasquez will look to reclaim the HW title on February 6th when rematches Fabricio Werdum.
