During his three-year run in the UFC, Brock Lesnar was by far the most marketable and most-watched athlete on the entire roster.
Coming from the world of professional wrestling, Lesnar already had a built in fan base on the first day he arrived in the promotion. But no one could have predicted that only four fights into his career he would defeat Randy Couture and become heavyweight champion.

It was recently announced that Fabricio Werdum's first title defense would be a rematch with the man he took the belt from, Cain Velasquez.
And despite dominating Cain Velasquez and submitting him, UFC champion Fabricio Werdum opened as a slight underdog in the sports books.
According to BestFightOdds.com, Fabricio Werdum opened as the underdog at +124 and Velasquez as the favorite at -130.
Donald Cerrone's march to a UFC lightweight title shot is something to behold. Since losing to now-champion Rafael dos Anjos at UFC Fight Night 27 in 2013, Cerrone has pushed through eight top contenders (including one former divisional champ).

Court McGee will finally return to the Octagon in December.
Sidelined due to several injuries and surgeries, the winner of the 11th season of The Ultimate Fighter is scheduled to take on TUF Brazil 3 runner-up Marcio Alexandre Jr. at UFC 194.
Maybe none of it was meant to be. How could you think anything else when looking at the past?
Both times Sean Loeffler had an opportunity to make it big in MMA, bad luck struck him and it struck him hard. Loeffler has a good life -- a successful gym business, a beautiful daughter and he owns his own home in California.
