Velasquez thumps Lesnar, takes title

“I trained for a five-round fight,” Velasquez said. “I’m always ready for that. You can’t expect an early stoppage.”

 

Velasquez weathered an early attack from the hulking former World Wrestling Entertainment superstar, kept his composure and picked his spots with power, precision and resolve. Lesnar took down the challenger twice in the first two minutes, and Velasquez answered the challenge seamlessly on both occasions. Velasquez scored with his own takedown 2:48 into the period, took a dominant position in back of the champion and pummeled him with punches and hammerfists. From there, it was all downhill for Lesnar.

 

“We expected him to come out, go hard in and go for the takedown,” Velasquez said. “We were ready for that. We worked on positions, on worst-case scenarios.”

 

Lesnar twice returned to his feet, only to be met with more strikes nfl jersey from the American Kickboxing Academy standout. A two-punch combination dropped the champion near the cage, and Velasquez pounced. Lesnar fought valiantly to defend himself but ate too many punches, forcing Herb Dean to step in on his behalf. He rose to his feet beaten, battered and bloodied.

 

“I expected nothing less,” Lesnar said. “I knew there was a great challenge in front of me. He’s a great fighter. What can I say? He was better than me tonight.”

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Jake Shields out-grappled Martin Kampmann on the ground and survived his strikes on the feet, as he earned a split decision in his Octagon debut. Two of the three mlb jerseys judges sided with Shields by 30-27 and 29-28 scores; a third saw it 29-28 for Kampmann. 

Shields took down and mounted the Xtreme Couture Mixed Martial Arts standout in each of the first two rounds but tired noticeably as the fight advanced, perhaps hindered by the weight cut to 170 pounds. Seemingly in position to spring the upset, Kampmann — who popped Shields with a pair of knees from the clinch earlier in the fight — got caught playing to his opponent’s strength in the third. Ultimately, Shields trapped the Dane in a body triangle and threatened him with a rear-naked choke as the bout came to a close.

 

A Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt under Cesar Gracie, Shields has won  15 consecutive fights. The 31-year-old Californian has not tasted defeat in nearly six nfl jersey  years and will likely find himself on a short list for potential contenders to welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre’s throne.
