UFC 81: Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir

Mir came in first. Lesnar got a lot of booes coming out. Kurt Angle and The Undertaker were shown in the audience. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was shown to a big response from the crowd. Rena “Sable” Mero, Lesnar’s wife, was also shown.

Round 1 Lesnar immediately took Mir to the ground and started punching Mir. Referee Steve Mazzagatti broke them up and took a point away from Lesnar for punching Mir in the back of the head. Lesnar took Mir down again and started pounding away at Mir, but Mir got Lesnar in a knee bar and submitted Lesnar.

Winner: Frank Mir via submission in Round 1

Lesnar won the crowd over with his interview after the fight. Lesnar gave props to Mir, and said that he’ll be back. Lesnar looked very impressive in the fight until he got caught by Mir, and looked like he was going to put Mir away early. He really was pounding Mir into the mat until the referee broke them up for Lesnar hitting Mir in the back of the head. With a little more work in training to avoid submissions, Lesnar could become a top contender.
