UFC 141: Brock Lesnar's Last Relevant Fight in the UFC

The only reason to tune into the main event at UFC 141 is to witness the end of Brock Lesnar. Brock was a financial investment gone array, a man with limited fighting skills made up of power, size, athleticism, and nothing behind all that god given ability. Brock was a former participant in what amounts to choreographed ballet on steroids where men in tights and Speedos sweat on each other in a ring for two hours on basic cable. He was use to air punches, not real ones. He was billed as the next dominant force in the UFC and instead fell flat like a piano falling from the Empire State building. The idea that this man still carries as a relevant heavyweight is beyond my comprehension. Brock Lesnar is no more relevant to the world of male mma than Gina Carano is to women's mma, but at least Gina has more professional fights under her belt, even if she like Lesnar got badly exposed by her last opponent.

But can you really blame him? After all he cashes in over 400,000 plus bonuses and sponsorship money so while the fan boys who followed him over from the WWE stand firm in their allegiance to a myth, Lesnar himself laughs all the way to the bank because we as reasonable mma fans were duped into believing he could actually be a good fighter. When in reality he's the worst heavyweight in the UFC right now. Diverticulitis aside, the man isn't worth a 5th ranking on any credible mma website. If I were a betting man with money to spend I would bet that of the current former heavyweights in the UFC Brock Lesnar is the least likely to become champion ever again. What once looked like an intimidating force of nature has been solved by Cain Velasquez. The jig is up and we now know Brock Lesnar doesn't like to get hit. Unfortunately he's facing a guy who does nothing but hit his opponents in the face and knock them out.

Alistair Overeem is the complete opposite of Brock Lesnar. He's an accomplished master of his craft who went through the riggers of the mixed martial arts world to gain his respect. While Lesnar's legion and many in the mma media defended the idea of Brock Lesnar being a mixed martial artist, Overeem faced questions and criticism despite being the only fighter to hold two heavyweight titles from two different promotions plus being crowned K-1 champion all in one time frame. It's true Overeem has more to prove than Lesnar because conventional wisdom still reigns over intelligence. People still believe Brock is relevant and has some legit skills to beat anyone in his division.

So when not if Alistair Overeem dismantles the myth of Brock Lesnar hopefully we can all move on from this bad joke and focus more on serious contenders. Here's the cold hard truth: Brock Lesnar was never a serious champion, he was a PR campaign for the UFC with short term gain and long term face in palm reaction behind close doors by Dana White because this campaign crashed and burned like Donald Trump's presidential tease. This was the first and only time the UFC welcomes a professional wrestler with open arms without first said wrestler having at least ten fights under his belt before fighting for the title against a guy in his mid 40s. Like I said this fight isn't serious and quite frankly I'm looking way beyond this one and looking forward to a real competitive clash between Junior Dos Santos and Alistair Overeem which will be a real war between two guys who know what to do on the ground yet see no reason to take the fight there. You can expect an early knock out in that fight. And believe me that fight will happen because Brock Lesnar won't win another meaningful match in the UFC.

But for the undercard is this fight predictable and not worth the 60 bucks.
