      These guys clashed, Velasquez threw a few strikes, and then collapsed as his knee went out, and it looked like Ngannou basically knocked him out, but apparently it was more a fluke knee injury, as he landed on it awkwardly. Either way, that's a huge win for Francis Ngannou, and I would have to assume after a nearly 3 year layoff for Velasquez, I can't imagine he'll be coming back again after this one. Maybe he's ok, but if his knee actually went out, then that's not good. Congrats to Ngannou though, for a nice quick finish over a guy they said is "arguably the greatest heavyweight of all time". I wouldn't make that argument, but I know he has a lot of fans. It's worth noting, Cain Velasquez headlined the first Fox card, and now the first ESPN card, and he lost both fights, in a combined total of 90 seconds. If that's not bad luck, I don't know what is.

      Browne blasted Velasquez with a hard right hand early in the first round. Cain was chasing Browne, trying to hit him, but Browne did a decent job backing up. Cain hit him with some decent shots though, and then shot for a takedown one minute into the first round, but Browne stuffed it. Browne's strikes aren't looking very crisp tonight, and Velasquez is looking a bit tubby. Velasquez blasted Browne with a surprise spinning heel kick, and then he knocked him down with some punches, and smothered Browne near the cage with 2 full minutes left in the round. Browne tried to get up, and Velasquez cranked his neck for a few seconds. Browne tried to explode back to his feet, but Velasquez continued to bully him against the cage. Browne finally got back to his feet with one minute left in the round. Browne is hurt, and Velasquez is mauling him, with 20 seconds left in the round. Browne was almost saved by the bell, but the ref stopped it with a couple of seconds left in the round, as Velasquez was unloading on him with punches on the ground. Nice win for Velasquez after being out of competition for over a year.

Submission (Guillotine Choke)

      FUCK YES! I basically called this shit... I was telling people that Werdum would knock out Cain with a knee to the chin, and everybody was like "No way bro, that shit is impossible." And I guess I was technically wrong, but Werdum FUCKED CAIN UP on the feet, with punches, elbows, and BRUTAL KNEES. Werdum beat his ass bad enough, to where Cain's corner told him that he needed to take the fight to the ground in the third round (which was the exact opposite of the plan they had going into the fight). So as Werdum spent half of the third round, continuing to destroy Cain with punches & knees, Cain took him to the ground, Werdum locked on the guillotine choke, and Cain tapped out. FUCKING AWESOME WIN, and Werdum MIGHT have a shot at being declared the greatest heavyweight of all time, being the guy that finished Fedor (best ground & pound of all time), by submitting him, while Fedor was trying to ground & pound him. He beat Nogueira (one of the best submission heavyweights of all time), via armbar. And now, Cain Velasquez, the guy that was supposed to outwork Werdum, and destroy him with strikes, Werdum DESTROYED HIM WITH STRIKES, and then finished him via submission. Awesome fight, and congrats to Fabricio Werdum for one of the best fights I've seen in a long time. FUCK YES!!! FABRICIO WERDUM IS THE UNDISPUTED HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!!

      Well, that was one hell of a trilogy. The heavyweight division really needs some more contenders though, because this division is getting VERY thin. With that being said, Cain Velasquez pretty much dominated Junior dos Santos for all 5 rounds, just grinding hard, keep him on the ground & against the fence, throwing punches & knees, etc... Junior landed some HARD elbows, and some really good punches, but in the end, he just can't keep up with Cain's pace. Who can? I have no idea. I'm not a huge fan of Cain Velasquez, but I don't really know who else would have a good chance against him. I'd like to see Barnett fight him, but I know Barnett still probably has a ways to go before he'll get a title shot. Good fight overall though.

      Talk about pointless title shots... I mean, Bigfoot is a good fighter and stuff, but like I complained about after the Hunt vs. Dos Santos fight, I'm sick of seeing the same recycled heavyweight fights. WHERE THE FUCK IS ROY NELSON WHEN YOU NEED HIM!?! SOMEBODY GIVE ROY NELSON A SHOT! We already saw Cain destroyed Bigfoot, and it wasn't THAT long ago. Here we are again, Cain punched him, he fell to the ground, he punched him a bunch of times, and the referee stopped the fight. Is anybody surprised? WHERE IS ROY NELSON!?!

      That was a monumental ass beating, delivered by Cain Velasquez, completely dominating Junior dos Santos all 3 rounds. Cain's striking looked excellent, his wrestling was amazing, his cardio was really good, and overall, he just won every aspect of this fight. He started to slow down somewhere in the third round, but Junior dos Santos had NOTHING to use to defend his belt. Great job Cain, and excellent way to show who the true Heavyweight Champion is.

      This was a pretty badass fight, but it reminded me of some of the lopsided fights from the old school PRIDE days. Silva threw a kick, Velasquez threw his big ass on the ground, and then hit him in the face with elbows & punches for 3+ minutes until eventually the referee was forced to stop the fight. It's been a LONG time since I've seen this much blood spilled in a fight, it was like Silva was a 264 pound can of Tomato Soup, just pouring all over the center of the octagon. Crazy stuff, it definitely looks like Velasquez is ready for another title shot though. Now it's time for the big show though, with the Heavyweight Title Fight between Mir & Dos Santos up next! Winner takes on Velasquez? Maybe?

      Seriously? Did that just happen? Cain threw a few shots, nothing really landed, he attempted a takedown and failed, Dos Santos punched him in the head, Velasquez fell to the ground, and just kind of laid down casually, Dos Santos punched him a few times and they stopped the fight. THIS was the main event on the first UFC event on Fox? And it ends right around the one minute mark, and lacks excitement? I mean, it was a really IMPORTANT fight, but it wasn't very interesting.

      DAYUM! This was a pretty badass title fight. Brock Lesnar started the fight like a bull, throwing giant bombs, taking down Velasquez, just going fucking CRAZY with his wild attacks. Eventually Cain was able to turn the tides, and he got on top of Lesnar, at which point he beat the living fuck out of him for over a minute, until eventually the referee had to stop the fight. CRAZY back & forth fight, and we have a NEW UFC Heavyweight Champion! Pretty brutal fight.

      This fight was nice, quick & clean. The entire fight took place standing, and Nogueira just wasn't able to find his rhythm. Cain's striking looked awesome, and he eventually knocked out Nogueira about halfway through the first round. Cain is calm & brutal. In my personal opinion, Cain is the #1 Heavyweight in the world.

      Cain Velasquez is a beast. He took Rothwell down at will, beat the living shit out of him with HARD punches, and BIG elbows, and he basically made Bed Rothwell look like an amateur. Early in round 2, Velasquez took Rothwell down again, and punched him in the face a lot, and as Rothwell was standing up, the referee stopped the fight. So, yes, the fight was stopped prematurely, but it was pretty clear that Rothwell wasn't going to win this fight, he should have thanked the ref.

      This fight was pretty incredible. I was fully expecting Cheick Kongo to win, and get a title shot, but he got completed dominated in this fight. The first 30 seconds of each round, consisted of Kongo nearly knocking out Velasquez, but the other 4:30 of each round, consisted of Velasquez slamming Kongo all over the octagon, and pounding on his face with his fist. In the end, Velasquez earns the unanimous decision victory.

      Denis Stojnic made his UFC debut in this fight, and basically proved that he is a fat bomb. And what I mean by that is, he's a fat guy, that basically got the shit kicked out of him for over 5 minutes, and kept coming forward, and the entire time, I couldn't help but feel like he was about to knock out Velasquez with some sort of explosive backfist or something. In the end, Cain Velasquez pulled off the victory via TKO, but Stojnic has a chin from hell, and some heavy hands, so I'm looking forward to seeing both of these guys fight again in the future.

      Cain Velasquez is a bad ass, and probably one of the best heavyweights in the UFC at the moment (since none of the great heavyweights are in the UFC anymore, other than Nogueira)... At this point, I would like to see Brock Lesnar fight Cain Velasquez since they're both a couple of huge prospects in the heavyweight division... I would expect Lesnar to destroy Velasquez, and then take on Nogueira for the title, but I'm sort of getting ahead of myself... At the moment, Cain just won, by pinning down O'Brien in the crusifix mount or whatever, and punched him in the face until the referee stopped the fight...

      Finally! I've been hearing a lot of good things about Cain Velasquez, so I'm excited that he's finally made his way into the UFC (even though he's on the undercard)... But yeah, he lived up to expectations I guess... He pretty much came out, punched Morris, took him to the ground, grappled with him for a few minutes, punched him a lot, unleashed some pretty solid ground & pound, nothing too far out of the ordinary, but still impressive... In the end, Velasquez wins by TKO in the first round due to strikes...

      This fight was one hell of a wrestling match, with both guys giving it there all, and pressuring each other through multiple transitions, both showing great wrestling skills. There was also some decent boxing in this fight, but Constant wasn't able ot keep up with Velasquez's pace, leaving him looking like a wounded animal on the ground, as Cain hopped away in victory. Cain Velasquez looks pretty legit.

      I had heard a lot about "some prospect" named Cain Velasquez before this fight, so I was excited to see his pro MMA debut here. He took Fujarczyk down at the start of the fight, got the side mount, transitioned into the mounted crucifix, Fujarczyk tried to buck out of it, but there was no escaping Cain's wrestling. Cain spent about a minute and 30 seconds, punching Fujarczyk in the face, until the referee eventually was forced to stop the fight. Nice MMA debut by Cain Velasquez.
