Cain Velasquez Ascends UFC Throne With Beatdown of Lesnar

Cain Velasquez just got a lot richer.  The new UFC heavyweight champ was determined, decisive and ultimately victorious in his crushing defeat of Brock Lesnar Saturday night at UFC 121 in southern California.

In many respects, it was an historic night.

After Lesnar attacked early, Velasquez went to work and barely four minutes into the first round, he had Lesnar on his backside.  A relentless barrage of punches from the smaller challenger left Lesnar with a deep and ugly cut under one eye and the title belt securely in the hands of the UFC's first Hispanic champion.

"To all the Latinos...we did it!" Velasquez exclaimed to the crowd afterward.

Next up for Velasquez, who like Lesnar is a former Division I college wrestler, will likely be Junior dos Santos and the winner may get Lesnar again.

Velasquez is young, athletic and has just defeated the UFC's brightest and biggest star.  His huge fan base is already scarfing up the limited number of items on eBay (see what's available here).

Lesnar, once deemed invincible, took a heavy dose of punching from Shane Carwin in his last bout, but Carwin didn't have the stamina to finish him off.  This time, Velasquez was up to the challenge and not about the mis out on a chance to become the UFC's new poster boy.  Now 9-0 (7-0 in UFC), Cain proved able.
