Following his first round technical knockout loss to Alistair Overeem at UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem,” former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar announced his retirement from the UFC and mixed-martial-arts.

Lesnar came up on the short-end of a one-sided beatdown to the new UFC heavyweight number one contender Overeem, dropping the bout in the first round following an onslaught of knees and kicks to the body.

During his post-fight interview with pay-per-view commentator Joe Rogan, Lesnar announced his retirement from fighting inside the Octagon. Lesnar revealed that had he won, his last fight would have been for the heavyweight title against Junior Dos Santos. Instead, things worked out that Lesnar is calling his loss to Overeem on Friday night his final Octagon appearance.

Time will tell.
