Lesnar pummels Mir @ UFC 100

In only his fifth professional MMA match, former WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar was able to avenge his only defeat by knocking out Frank Mir in the second round of Saturday night's much hyped UFC 100 from Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Lesnar successfully defended his Heavyweight belt by obliterating Mir from the onset. While the night provided great drama with Dan Henderson and Brock Lesnar surprising all with impressive victories. Many expected Mir to submit Lesnar but the former wrestler controlled this battle from start to finish. Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves provided little by means of excitement as do much of GSP's fights lately. Joe Rogan even suggested he move up to 185 or fight next time with one arm tied behind his back.
However the highlight of the night was undoubtedly Lesnar's post match interview with Rogan. Lesnar apparently still has the WWE mentality show-man aspect who is obviously playing the heel for UFC. His classic quips regarding Coors Light, and his wife Sable made for great live television, albeit Pay-Per-View. Fans would be hard pressed to find their $45 spent more wisely on this night.
