UFC 116 Results - Brock Lesnar Survives Shane Carwin

New, comments

It didn’t look good for UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the first round when Shane Carwin dropped him with a flurry of punches and pounded him on the ground for most the round.

But Lesnar came back in the second round and choked out a tired Carwin with an arm triangle choke.

Carwin looked utterly dominant over Lesnar in the first, making the champ curl up in the fetal position for minutes at a time. But he clearly faded by the end of the round and had very little left for Lesnar in the second round.

Lesnar now becomes the uncontested #1 heavyweight in the world.
