Brock was awsome! he pounded him with about 40 punches total but you could tell he doesn't know how to finish guys off yet.

This is the best thing to ever happen to Lesnar because he will now be motivated and train in different areas to become a complete and total beast!!!

I fear for the life of his next opponent.

You can tell Lesnar has talent.

Not only is he strong and freakishly quick for his size, but you can tell he is comfortable on the ground. He is definitely uncomfortable standing, which is why he kept spearing Frank Mir to the ground. He just needs to refine his skills and stand-up abilities. But he has potential that is for sure.

I think fighting Mir first was a bad idea. A former HW champion whose submission abilities would expose Lesnar too easily. Personally, i think they should have put him up against a guy like Cheick Kongo or Jardine.

Exactly, he looked so confused when he stood up and just stood there giving Mir a chance to bait him in. I have to give some credit to Mir because he took a beating and pulled off one of the smoothest finishes I've seen in a long time.

It will be interesting to see who he fights next.

Yea for NOG! Just like his fight with Sapp, he took a beating then submitted the bigger man. Sylvia is a boring piece. I'm glad to see him get caught.

I was so surprised with Lesnar's performance. A little more training and he might turn out to be quite a star.

No mention so far of the controversial "stop" during the Lesnar/Mir fight?? What the hell was that??? I always thought you got a warning for hitting the back of the head. Also, Mir was turning his head when he hit him. Brock was in a position to absolutely destroy Mir at that point. I still call bs.

Best fight of the night for sure was the preliminary fight between Tim Boetsch and David Heath. What a debut by Boetsch. This guy looks like he could be a real serious contender!

Total control now. Tooling along the main drag on a Saturday night in Vegas. Two good old boys in a fire-apple red convertible. Stoned. Ripped. Twisted. Good people.

I agree Johnny. Big John would have given a verbal warning, Mazagatti just stepped in deducted a point right off the bat. No need for that. I'd hate to be the next fighter to face Brock.

I have no problem with giving him a warning, but stopping the fight like THAT, with ZERO warning??? Come on.... seemed just a tad f'ed up to me.

yeah, that annoyed me as well

The replay showed Lesnar hit him once on the back of the head and only because Mir turned his head into it. Lesnar actually got in another punch right after that and it was legal, I really think Maz should have let him keep going. Lesnar had Mir in a really bad spot during that flurry, as Mir looked a little dazed and was slightly perched up and very vulnerable.

but boy was that fight entertaining, it's a shame it ended so quickly

Tim Boetsch definitely looks scary. That was a beating and a half, guys gotta have some strength to throw a guy down like that, not to mention pound on his face.

Lesnar looks good! I was surprised, I agree with the person who said what a weird first fight to pick. Mir is really good - I actually think a him and mino fight would be very good as one has a great guard and the other is an animal on top.

I also am glad Tim Sylvia lost - man he looks good for a bit than just gets gassed and stands there. But he's too big to be dominated so they all turn into boring fights, I feel for the guy he tries, but he just runs out of steam too quickly which leads to boring fights.

I do want to see Lesnar again because he put a pounding on Mir and looks to have a damn exciting style. Oh Yeah.. the guy Lytle pounded.. LOL poor guy trying to clinch the referee.

Tis possible. He had a sweet victory over the highly touted Sokoudjou back in December after going to the judges in his first three UFC bouts. Tito hasn't looked very good in his last two after drawing (controversially) with Rashad Evans as well as being pummelled by Chuck. Gonna be a good fight.

So friggin psyched for this one. Nothing like watching Spider in the octagon!!

My predictions and who I actually want to win:
Silva vs Henderson - I'd like to see Dan win, just cause he's such a nice guy, but don't see it happening.
Herring vs Kongo - Kongo is my favourite Heavyweight.
Sakara vs Leben - I love the brawlers, this should be fun.
Okami vs Tanner - Too much experience from Tanner.
Wilson vs Fitch - This guy's the real deal in the Welterweight division, 7 straight wins!
O'Brien vs Arlovski - It would be nice to see Arlovski return to top notch form.
Fiorvanti vs Cummo - This may be the most entertaining fight of the night, GO NERD!!!
Hazellett vs Koschek - I HATE Koschek, but he's gonna murder this guy.
Bielkheden vs Sanchez - Diego has lost two straight, he should destroy him.
Halverson vs Gurgel - The one I care least about, so....
