Alistair Overeem had quite an eventful night for his first appearance in the UFC. He used his legs and knees to do damage to Brock Lesnar’s body and needed just 2:26 to finish the former champ.

Overeem garnered himself a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos with the victory and also sent Lesnar into retirement.

“My hat’s off to Alistair Overeem,” Lesnar told Joe Rogan after the fight. “I’ve had a difficult couple of years with my disease and I’m going to officially say tonight was the last time you’re going to see me in the Octagon.”

Lesnar went on to say that he promised his wife and kids that if he won against Overeem he would get a title shot and that would be his last fight. Overeem made quick business of Lesnar, and now Lesnar has called it a career.

Overeem will now fight Junior Dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight belt, in search of his 4th championship belt. He has already won the DREAM, Strikeforce and K-1 titles.
