Alistair Overeem made his UFC debut a memorable one, needing less then one round to KO former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.  Overeem landed a kick to the liver that knocked Lesnar down and then landed numerous punches before the fight was stopped.  After the fight, Lesnar announced his retirement from the octagon.

Also on the main card, Nate Diaz pummeled Donald Cerrone for 15 minutes to win their fight by unanimous decision.  Johny Hendricks scored the biggest upset of the night when he KO'd top 10 fighter Jon Fitch 12 seconds into their welterweight fight.  Alexander Gustafsson showed why he is one of the best young lightweights in the world when he knocked out Vladmir Matyushenko in the first round of their fight and Jimy Hettes opened the PPV with a dominating win over Nam Phan
