UFC 116 Highlights - 7/3/2010

First of all, congratulations to Brock Lesnar on his win!

Highlights Source:

At last night's UFC 116 PPV in Las Vegas, Nev., after retaining his UFC Heavyweight Championship against the undefeated Shane Carwin (now 12-1), Brock Lesnar was congratulated at Octagon-side by "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Bill Goldberg.

During the PPV the announcers pointed out "The Rock" Dwayne Johnson and Austin, who were not sitting together. Goldberg was not pointed out, although given that Goldberg was Lesnar's last opponent in WWE ring, it would have been a cool trivia note to mention.

UFC lead announcer Mike Goldberg, who was up for the lead announcing job on Raw and almost defected from UFC to MMA a few years ago, called Austin "Cold Stone" instead of "Stone Cold."

He got it right later in the night on a second mention.

When Lesnar celebrated his victory in the crowd, WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross and former ECW owner Paul Heyman were also shown on-camera sitting ringside near Austin and Goldberg.

At the end of the PPV, UFC cameras showed Lesnar in his locker room embracing The Rock as part of his post-fight celebration.

- Dave Batista was there in attendance for the match as well.
