Lesnar stopped Frank Mir with a merciless flurry of punches July 11 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, defending his title in the final bout of UFC 100 on a landmark weekend recognizing the best in this proliferating sport.

Lesnar (4-1) stole the show with what happened after his relentless series of right hands into the face of Mir, who handed Lesnar his only loss nearly 18 months ago.

Mir had won their first encounter with a kneebar, and he tried another one in the opening minute of the rematch. The attempt was thwarted by Lesnar, who then spent much of the round smothering Mir from half guard and pounding on him.

Mir wore a smile out for the second period, though. He clipped Lesnar with a short left hand and followed with a knee and a jumping knee. It was his best and only offense. What happened next was especially violent. Lesnar took Mir down, pinned him against the cage and pummeled his face until referee Herb Dean shoved his way in to stop the fight at 1 minute, 48 seconds.

2010 Calendar featuring Nicole McClain

Get your hammer and nail ready to hang Dave Nestler's 2010 calendar featuring a select few of his models from his nototrious pinip paintings. Keep your eye on the months as I am featured in the calendar for the Bored of Education painting, in a teaser shot of the painting on the cover (bottom left corner with the paintbrush in my hand), and a bio pic on the back of the calendar.

Brock Lesnar and Nicole McClain | Arnold Classic

Brock Lesnar and Nicole McClain for DYMATIZE
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has carved out a historic corner for UFC 100. Despite the fact that more than 100 UFC shows have gone in the books, the symbolic century mark transforms this July event from usual summer sizzle show to organizational milestone. The Mandalay Bay Events Center plays host to the card Saturday in Las Vegas.

Brock Lesnar, whom I had the pleasure of working, shooting, and chatting with (and his wife - a deer hunter herself no less) is a former professional wrestler and national collegiate wrestler. Brock first saw Octagon action when Frank Mir submitted him in the first round at UFC 81. With a chance at redemption and an opportunity to claim the UFC's undisputed heavyweight title, Lesnar's shocking size, strength and athleticism look to overcome Mir's experience and technique.

At the Arnold Classic, I watched and heard Frank Mir state Brock didn't have a chance and Mir couldn't wait to crush him. On the other hand, Brock was calm, passive and soft spoken - and overwhelming huge. He was a pleasure to meet, work with and I can only hope he enjoyed my company as much as I enjoyed the company of him and his lovely wife.

With a win for Brock, a trilogy is in order; a third fight could propel both to superstardom, as it did with Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture's three-fight saga. However, Mir has come into his own, mentally and physically, after a nearly career-ending 2004 motorcycle accident. Stopping Lesnar again would dispel any referee-related controversies (Steve Mazzagatti cited the Minnesotan for a hit to the back of the head) left over from the first bout.

This exciting clash could help heavyweights capture the imagination of all fight fans, as only their massive frames and larger-than-life personalities can. I will be working the Bacardi "Win Your Way to the Front" pre-fight party to offer diehard fans a chance to win the best seat in the house with complimentary food and Bacardi beverages.
