UFC Brock Lesnar Alistair Overeem 141

If you happened to skip Friday night’s “UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem” extravaganza, or if you were one of the 25,000 Xbox users that received free access to the pay-per-view broadcast only to see the stream experience significant glitches, FOXSports.com has provided a video recap of the event for your viewing pleasure.

Brock Lesnar’s Octagon return was 14 months in the making and Alistair Overeem’s big league debut was several years overdue, but their heavyweight top contender scrap only lasted a couple of minutes.

Overeem unleashed several knees to the sternum and a vicious kick to the liver that marked the beginning of the end for Lesnar. Speaking of endings, Lesnar announced his retirement from mixed martial arts after posting his second straight loss.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosted last night’s festivities.
