At UFC 91 in 2008, Lesnar and Couture started their fight reversing each others’ moves. As the fight went into the second round, Lesnar started to dominate a little more. Although Couture inflicted a cut on Lesnar’s eye, it wasn’t enough for him. As the clocked inched closer towards the three-minute mark, Lesnar’s right hand floored Couture. He immediately landed a few hammer fists before the referee stopped the fight.  At 3:07 seconds of the second round, Lesnar won via TKO.

2. Brock Lesnar vs Heath Herring

Still in the early days of his UFC career, Lesnar got an opportunity to fight in his hometown, Minnesota. Named as UFC seek and destroy, Lesnar sought and destroyed his opponent inside the target Center at UFC 87. He dominated Heath Herring for the majority of the three rounds that they fought. This made the judges’ job easier as Lesnar won by unanimous decision.

3. Lesnar vs Mark Hunt

By 2016, Lesnar has already made a name as one of the most dominant fighters. Many were already expecting him to do what he did to Mark Hunt at UFC 200. He defeated Mark Hunt by unanimous decision, 29-27, 29-27, 29-27.

However, Lesnar was later stripped off the win after failing a drug test.
