UFC 141 Results/Recap/Gate/Attendance/Salaries/Medicals

UFC 141…UFC 141! Overeem delivers, Lesnar retires. Nate Diaz put’s an a&& whooping on Donald Cerrone. Johnny Hendricks KO’s perennial contender John Fitch. When I say KO, I mean, like Ice Cube did D’bo in Friday. He was out. In fact, he didn’t know what happened, he even tried to takedown the ref before he found out what happened. That kind of KO! Alexander Gustafsson TKO’s Vlady Matyushenko! Say what you will about Vlady, he’s a tough a hell fighter with a great chin. That kid is something special. Jimmy Hettes puts it down for 3 brutal rounds, showing us 2 things. 1. Jimmy Hettes is fantastic. 2. Nam Phan is on tough motherF23Ker.

Jimmy Hettes is the future of the sport. He’s the prototype of fighters to come. Young, skilled and athletic with more years of training all aspects of MMA. MMA gyms and training are here to stay. The days of being great in one discipline and finding great success in the cage are fading fast.

If you missed the last card of 2011, you missed a good card. Below are all of the stuff you’ve come to love. Enjoy.
