    Can't even take him seriously in Wrestlemania. He should go back to hiding at his ranch and milking goats.

    Had a nice little MMA career though. In the end though he never had a shot against Overeem. He has no striking ability so all Reem had to do was just stay low and pick his spots.

    And he was never going to be a contender again. Better for him to go back to WWE and be a big star instead of drown away in the mid-card in the UFC.

    I mentioned this in the 1st thread for this fight, I thought Overeem was a bad matchup for Brock in his comeback from his illness. Perhaps a rematch vs Mir would have been better. Brock didn't just come back from the flu, his illness was no joke and I'm sure it's sapped a bit out of him. Regardless, Overeem is a beast of beasts. Can't wait to see him take on JDS.

    No doubt. What he dealt with was life threatening actually.

    This is the truth. He should have have been given a warmup fight but even if he won against mid tier opponents... in the end it wouldn't have mattered because the ultimate result in the end would be the same. Sucks that he had to face arguably the best Heavyweight in the game the last few years but it's what everybody wanted to see and I thank the UFC for giving it to us. He was entertaining win or lose and was/will be the all time greatest draw in UFC history.

    It was fun while it lasted.

    Brock didn't look like a fighter.

    I agree with all of this post but I disagree with the bold. Right now he is but the sport is growing and I think it will and can grow just fine without Brock. And will find another big draw (Jon Jones?) Brock has only fought like twice in two years because of his illness but the sport has still grown.

    Lesnar had a stomach surgergy and Overeem took advantage of that by kicking it. I guess he was scared to do pure boxing cuz he nuked him after he was bleeding.

    Another disappointing heavyweight fight. Well, at least Big Show vs Shaq and Undertaker vs Brock at WM should be good.

    Didn't think it was boring at all. Expected Overeem to get an explosive knockout (tko anyway) and he delivered. Diaz vs Cerrone was a great fight also really impressed by both Diaz bros, I'm a fan of both of those guys now. Hendricks crazy knockout, Hettes and Gustaffson enter everyone's radar, DHK throwing crane kick after crane kick... Not sure what you're expecting from MMA if you didn't think last night was a good night of fights.
