UFC 121: Cain Velazquez Vs. Brock Lesner

After constantly having to prove himself, it is great to see Cain Velasquez finally getting what he desereves. HARD WORK PAYS OFF..

*Tonight was not only a BIG win for Cain Velasquez, but for an enitre race, Velasquez coming in as the underdog became the first Mexican (-American) Heavyweight champion of the UFC.

Imposing his will right from the beginning of the fight, Cain Velasquez had incredible accuracy. Landing nearly every one of his strikes on Brock Lesner.

 Lesner struggled to fight back, seeking takedowns hoping to turn around the fight in his favor, but surely it was not enough. Velasquez was relentless with his attack and ultimately broke down Lesner and used great ground-and-pound, making his face into a bloody scene.
