    Frank Mir makes Brock Lesnar tap in a minute and thirty seconds at UFC 81

    LAS VEGAS Brock Lesnar was everything he was purported to be in his UFC debut.

    Unfortunately for the former WWE star, Frank Mir was, too. Mir, the ex-UFC heavyweight champ whose career was nearly derailed by a 2004 motorcyle accident, survived an early pounding to submit Lesnar at 1:30 of the first round Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

    Lesnar, a college wrestling national champion, easily took Mir down twice in the early going and was pounding away with fists and elbows to the grounded Mir. But Mir worked for submissions and eventually worked into a knee bar that forced Lesnar to tap out.
    Mir had failed twice to get an arm bar on Lesnar, whose massive arms made it difficult.

    "His legs were leaner, so I went for those," Mir said.

    Lesnar took Mir down only 10 seconds into the fight and it looked for a second as if the bout might end early. Lesnar was in Mir's guard and pounding away, but punched Mir in the back of the head, a foul that cost him a point.

    As soon as the bout resumed, Lesnar took him down again and began to repeat the pummeling.

    "It feels spectacular, because I had Brock Lesnar dropping elbows on my head and I still pulled through that and got a submission," Mir said.

    The end came as Mir failed to get an arm bar on Lesnar. Lesnar tried to move away and Mir snatched his ankle and quickly slapped on the knee bar. Lesnar had to tap very quickly.
    In only his second mixed martial arts bout, Lesnar took on the challenge of one of the top fighters in the world. He said he would continue to fight.

    "I came out trying to pressure Frank (because) I questioned his heart," Lesnar said. "I was just trying to get a bunch of shots in there and I left my leg out there. He's a top-notch jiu-jitsu guy and he got me tonight. He's the better fighter."

    As a side note, before the fight the following information was reported:

    According to Dave Meltzer of Yahoo! Sports, Brock Lesnar will pocket $450,000 if he wins his UFC debut tonight. That figure includes $250,00 just to show up and a $200,000 bonus if he wins. Lesnar has the chance to earn even more than that with "locker room" bonuses if his fight is exciting. The $250,000 base pay is more guaranteed money than any other fighter on the card. Considering Lesnar has just one professional mixed martial arts fight to his credit, it says a lot about how much Dana White is banking on him.

    Same here. However, I would like to see Lesnar continue to improve and stay in the game.

    Me too. I haven't kept up with the hype around this guy, but I think the humility in this quote speaks volumes...

    "I came out trying to pressure Frank (because) I questioned his heart," Lesnar said. "I was just trying to get a bunch of shots in there and I left my leg out there. He's a top-notch jiu-jitsu guy and he got me tonight. He's the better fighter."
    "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

    I agree that if he starts small and works up he will be very good. He has an outstanding wrestling background

    Mir took a beating, but in the end he pulled it off by fighting smarter.
    Here is the fight for those that missed it.

    Thanks for the link, I wasn't able to catch the fight.

    I'm glad Mir won. I respect (fake) wrestling but I've never been a fan. I stick with the real stuff...

    I didn't mind paying 39$ but anything more than that I won't buy it. I will stick with elitexc. As for Brock I think they need to keep him around and let him get some more experience, and he will be a force to reckon with in time.

    elitexc is ok, but I really prefer WEC. I dig the lighter weight guys who finish fights, no decisions. Uriah Faber is a beast, little sawed of cali dude.
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.
