Brock Lesnar Battles Back to Beat Shane Carwin

Brock Lesnar added another notch to his brief, but impressive UFC resume' Saturday night in Las Vegas by surviving a brutal attack from Shane Carwin that almost ended the fight in the first round.

"He's a beast," a somewhat contrite Lesnar said in the post-fight news conference.

But Lesnar is no slouch himself and proved that with a phoenix-like rise.  He survived over 40 Carwin punches while on his back and managed to show enough movement to avoid having the fight stopped.

"I have to thank the referee for allowing it to continue," Lesnar said.  "I wasn't hurt.  After awhile, I could feel his punches less and less.  I knew then that the worst was done."

It was and Lesnar came roaring back in round two.  He circled Carwin and went into a full mount, ending the bout with an arm triangle choke to become the undisputed UFC Heavyweight Champion.

"I knew I lost the first round," he said.  "But then there's still four rounds gto go."

Lesnar is now 5-1 and headed for a showdown with number one contender Cain Velasquez.  First, though, he'll have to heal.  The early assault left him with stitches on his face.

"I'm very impressed and blown away by what he's done in such a short period of time," said UFC president Dana White.

Even with a one-year layoff, Brock Lesnar proved he was just a little better than Shane Carwin and clearly the UFC's most marketable superstar.
