Universal Championship — Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Braun Strowman vs. Kane
I will discuss this fight in detail as Brock is my favorite fighter. He has not only been at the top in WWE but also in UFC. His last fight against Mark Hunt was a clear indication of his growth as one of the best mixed martial artists in his weight division.
Let me cut the chase and tell you what happened in the fight
Braun kept on giving Brock hard time but an F5 from Brock on the Commentator’s table was a game changer move. Braun stamina was appreciated by the commentators as for a 385 pounder to fight for that long counts a lot. Brock was cunning and waited for the right time to make his move. Later Braun was burried under the announce table by Brock. Later Strowman hit Brock with consecutive running power slams. In the mean time, Kane takes advantage and hits Strowman out with a chair bang. As Kane prepares Brock Lesnar for Tombstone Piledriver, Brock smartly reverses it and hit an F5 winning the match
WWE Royal Rumble Main highlight:
Ronda Rousey makes her formal debut in WWE and will be performing full time for WWE. She has already signed the contract with WWE.
Ronda was one of my favorite female fighters in UFC and she defended the Bantamweight title a number of times in UFC. Her last fight against Nunes was disappointing and she left UFC. I hope that Ronda comes back to MMA again and conquer the art again. A fighter remains a fighter for life. It’s something inside of you, which you cannot build with training or experience. There should be a fighter in you and I am sure that Ronda will soon be able to discover the new fighter in her and come back to MMA. Wish her the best!
