Brock Lesnar's Victory Over Shane Carwin Is Still One Of The Greatest Comebacks In UFC History

Brock Lesnar's Victory Over Shane Carwin Is Still One Of The Greatest Comebacks In UFC History

Brock Lesnar's stunning victory against Shane Carwin is still one of the greatest comebacks in UFC history.

Lesnar survived a brutal onslaught in the first round to defeat Carwin by submission to defend his UFC heavyweight title.

Carwin entered the fight unbeaten and had finished all 12 of his previous opponents in the first round (which included a demolition of Frank Mir for the interim UFC heavyweight title) and came close to doing the same to Lesnar.

He started the fight in aggressive fashion as he tagged Lesnar early with a vicious uppercut which immediately backed the defending champion.

Carwin then rushed Lesnar against the fence and landed a knee before dropping him to the floor. He unleashed a beating on Lesnar who defended himself to stop referee Josh Rosenthal from halting the contest.
