UFC 121 Fighter Salaries And Medical Updates

UFC 121 Fighter Salaries And Medical Updates The UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez fighter salaries were released on Tuesday by officials at the California State Athletic Commission. The main event featured Cain Velasquez finishing off Brock Lesnar in the opening round to capture the UFC heavyweight championship. Even though Brock lost the fight he is still a winner in the salary department. The event took place on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., before 14,856 fans. The following figures are based on the fighter salary information that promoters are required by law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners’ bonuses.

Brock Lesnar Healed And Ready To Return To UFC

Brock Lesnar Healed And Ready To Return To UFC As recently as early January, Brock Lesnar was convinced he needed surgery to deal with a case of diverticulitis – a condition that essentially left a hole in his intestine and put his career as Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title holder in jeopardy. He might be out a year. Or it might be two. Or it might be forever. Instead, a series of doctor’s visits and tests have revealed what both Lesnar and UFC president Dana White described as a “miracle.” The big guy is healed and ready to return to the Octagon this summer, probably against the winner of the fight between Frank Mir and Shane Carwin in March. “Let’s be clear, I’m still the heavyweight champion,” Lesnar growled, in trademark fashion, on ESPN on Wednesday morning. There couldn’t be better news for the UFC and fans of mixed martial arts. Lesnar isn’t just apparently well again (although really, who knows if there could be a setback or another episode), but his return to

UFC's Brock Lesnar In For A Fight

UFC's Brock Lesnar In For A Fight And It's Not In The Octagon This lets you know that no one is invisible. Even the toughest guys in the world. My best goes out To Brock and wish him a speedy recovery.I for one want to see him fight again. His life was now about family, training and humble hard work. It was the antithesis of his days making millions in the cutthroat, 300-days-on-the-road, close-down-the-nightclubs-fast-lane of the WWE. That was an existence he grew to detest, so much so that five years ago he walked away from a multi-million dollar contract with no job. Then an interesting thing happened. By moving to real fighting, he found the real Brock Lesnar. “This is who I am,” he said. “I’m a fighter.” Now Lesnar is in for the biggest fight of his life; dealing with a serious illness – at this point just described as “bacterial infection in his intestinal tract.” He had “minor surgery” in Bismarck, N.D. Tuesday, according to UFC president Dana White. “Not 100 (percen

UFC's Brock Lesnar Postpones Fight

UFC's Brock Lesnar Postpones Fight This is bad news for the UFC. With Brock Lesnar being such a huge draw to the gate and PPV this puts a little monkey wrench into the mix. But looks like Dana's got it taken care of. He has moved up the Tito Ortiz vs. Forrest Griffin fight to the Nov. 21 main event slot for UFC 106 I know that the numbers will not be the same but it's Tito come back to the UFC after all that he has been through(Dana BS, back surgery) and it will be nice to see The Huntington Badboy fight again. Some might call him a douche but I for one am a Tito fan and hope he kicks the shit out of Forrest. Brock Lesnar, the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s massive heavyweight titleholder, was forced to withdraw Monday from his highly anticipated Nov. 21 title defense in Las Vegas against Shane Carwin. Carwin, via his Twitter feed , said the fight will be rescheduled for UFC 108 on Jan. 2. UFC president Dana White confirmed the news to Yahoo! Sports. White said Lesnar
