The Ultimate Fighting Championship heads to Anaheim, California for the fourth time on Saturday night Oct. 23 with UFC 121: “Lesnar vs. Velasquez” an action packed card with an anticipated heavyweight title fight featuring the UFC’s biggest star Brock Lesnar (UFC heavyweight champ) and the widely popular Mexican-American undefeated challenger Cain Velasquez.
The fight is intriguing for many reasons, will Brock be able to handle the speed and workrate of the smaller fighter Velasquez and will Cain be able to handle the size and power of the former WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar? If Cain wins he will make history being the very first Mexican heavyweight champion in combat sport history. There has never been a Mexican heavyweight champion in either Boxing or Mixed Martial Arts.
