Brock Lesnar vs. Mark Hunt

R1: We're treated to the cliche "feel-out period" for the first 90 seconds of the contest. Lesnar surprisingly lands two outside low kicks. Hunt chops out his lead leg with a low kick. Lesnar coils up and slingshots across the cage in pursuit of a double leg, getting deep on Hunt's hips. Hunt gets away with a fence grab while defending but ends up with his back on the cage and a wide base.

Lesnar switches from a double to a high-crotch to finish the takedown, landing in side mount. Lesnar cradles the far-side leg, then tries to isolate the far-side arm. Hunt senses it and rolls into turtle, leaving himself open for a few clubbing lefts from Lesnar. Now it's a spearing knee to the ribs from Lesnar in side control. Lesnar amplifies his attack with more punches and it allows Hunt to escape back to his feet but Lesnar chases him down and plants him on his back again. 10-9 Lesnar.

R2: Hunt walks Lesnar into a corner with a low level and an uppercut cocked. Hunt darts forward to glance with a right upstairs. Now a half-blocked lead hook from Hunt. Lesnar twice finds himself cornered and shoots a defensive takedown, and both are easily sidestepped by Hunt. Another glancing right hand to the head from Hunt.

Lesnar tries to duck under the next punch but Hunt spins out of range. Hunt is looking to sight in his left hook but allowing Lesnar to circle out without cutting him off. Lesnar shoots a takedown and Hunt stuffs it with an under-hook. 10-9 Hunt.

R3: Lesnar, again backed into a corner, shoots a double leg, but this time he turns the corner and yanks Hunt's hips off the cage to finish it. Full mount for Lesnar with short lefts to the face. Hunt goes onto his right hip but Lesnar's base is way too heavy. Lesnar lands a volley of lefts to the face.

Full mount with double grapevines for Lesnar, and he starts thudding endless right hands to the head of Hunt. Though Hunt does his best to block or deflect most of the shots, Lesnar just bases down and unleashes more heavy rights. Lesnar goes back to half guard to land a few left forearms. 10-8 Lesnar. I have it 29-27 Lesnar.

  • Brock Lesnar defeats Mark Hunt by unanimous decision (29-27 x3)
