Lesnar had been consumed by a 6-foot-5 Dutch kick boxer in the first round at UFC 141.

Lesnar deserted from the UFC after Overeem blocked him with one vicious kick to the body at 2:26 of the first round in their heavyweight bout Fri. night, leaving the UFC heading into 2012 without its biggest pay-per-view star.

“This is the final time you may see me in the cage,” Lesnar expounded. NFL scores

Principally thanks to his fame from a job in professional wrestling, the hulking Lesnar (5-3) had a big role in enlarging the UFC’s profile and fan base over the past 4 years. He beat Randy Couture in 2008 to win the heavyweight title, protecting it twice previous to losing the belt to Cain Velasquez last year.

But, Lesnar has fought just 3 times in the past two years while handling bouts of a lower-intestinal ailment that just about snuffed him out.

Lesnar’s return from a 14-month injury absence was a short, one-sided thrashing. After taking injury from 2 knee blows earlier on, he could not get over a kick to the liver from Overeem ( 36-11 ), who made a stellar UFC debut notwithstanding getting cut near his right eye by a punch from Lesnar.

The 34-year-old Lesnar’s statement surprised fans who already realized he faced a tough matchup in the UFC’s standard end-of-the-year event in its hometown.

“I had no clue he would do that, (but) am I shocked? No,” UFC President Dana White said. “Brock Lesnar has made a lot of money in his profession and has executed a lot of things. He brought a lot of activity to the heavyweight division. What he accomplished in a short amount of time is astounding, but I am getting it. It does not shock me.”

Overeem is three years younger but much more expert than Lesnar, wounding the previous champ at least twice earlier in the round while Lesnar failed in his attempt at one-legged takedown.

“I guaranteed my other half and my children if I won this fight, I might get a title shot, and that’d be my last fight,” Lesnar declared. “But if I lost tonight … You’ve been great.”

Overeem will get the subsequent shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, who observed from a seat near the cage.

Overeem is a champ kick fighter who has fought in multiple promotions during the last decade, winning titles in Dream and Strikeforce with nearly matchless striking and size. He joined the UFC in Sep, eventually presenting his formidable skills and frightening physique to the sport’s biggest fan.

“My experience in UFC was, it’s huge,” Overeem recounted. “I think it’s like one hundred times bigger than Strikeforce. K-1 (kick boxing) is big, but this is a lot bigger. I used to be a little bit blown away, am still. I loved every second of it.”

White could have given an immediate title shot to Overeem if the timing had been superior, but Dos Santos only claimed Velasquez’s belt in early November. Overeem welcomed a debut against Lesnar, even guaranteeing a knockout in the first 2 rounds.

“First or 2nd round, I guaranteed,” Overeem expounded.

Lesnar hadn’t fought since losing his heavyweight belt to Velasquez in October 2010, cancelling a bout against Dos Santos last June in Vancouver after another flare-up of diverticulitis. The former NCAA wrestling champ and fake WWE fighter kept his unparalleled acclaim during his recovery, and Lesnar utilized the time off to change both his diet and his standup game, attempting to improve his largest weakness.

As it seemed, Lesnar could not improve sufficient to contend with the supremely skilled Overeem, who embraced Lesnar afterwards.
