Brock Lesnar Announces Retirement Following Loss to Overeem


Last night following a TKO loss to Alistair Overeem in the first round of the main event at 141, Brock Lesnar announced his retirement.

Prior to the fight with Overeem, Lesnar had been out of action for over a year with a back and forth battle with diverticulitus. Whether or not it was ring rust, we may never know.

“I’ve had a really difficult couple years with my disease,” said Lesnar. “And I’m officially going to say this is the last time you’ll see me in the octagon.”

Lesnar who made his way over to MMA in 2008 following a career in the WWE went 5-3 with 4 of those wins in the UFC.
