Lesnar actually did pretty well, he showed a LOT of potential.

Lesnar looked good, made a mistake and got caught in a kneebar - not the first guy to have that happen against a submission fighter the caliber of Mir. If he had not gotten so anxious to pound Mir out and stayed safe I don't think Mir would have had a chance the way Lesnar was just over powering him, hopefully next time Lesnar keeps his head about him a bit better and gets a win, he is certainly going to be fun to watch. Sylvia looked good, sprawled well, was easily winning the stand up, but Nog is what he is and pulled out another one. Still, Tim looked better and more aggressive than he has in a while. Lytle's fight was the best, 33 seconds of fury, that was awesome.

Agreed, that was pretty much exactly what I was expecting. Lesnar to take things to the ground and overpower him, only to be caught with a submission. Lesnar's striking was a bit sloppy too on the ground. It was a decent showing for him though, it proved he has the potential.
