After rattling off four wins in a row, with two knockouts and a submission, Brock Lesnar ended up suffering the second loss of his career this Saturday at UFC 121 in California. The result, by way of a first-round knockout from Cain, cost Lesnar his heavyweight belt.
The mood in the octagon was peaceful and professional. Brock’s trainers – among them black belt Rodrigo Comprido – congratulated Velasquez and team.
After watching the belt fastened around the waist of the man who just beat him, Lesnar humbly recognized the loss and offered no excuses.
“I expected no less. He’s a great fighter. I had a good training camp, but Cain was better tonight,” said the monster-sized fighter in the octagon, interviewed by Joe Rogan.
Lesnar, who even cracked a smile, guaranteed he will train hard to get back on his feet.
“That’s what a champion does,” he said in finishing.
