Going into UFC 121 Brock Lesnar appeared to be the “baddest man on the planet” but apparently Cain Velasquez wasn’t quite so convinced. After pummeling Brock into oblivion, in the process walking away with the UFC Heavyweight gold wrapped around his waist, Cain Velasquez propelled himself, along with his Dethrone Royalty signature series into the top spot in under five wild minutes inside the Octagon. There’s no question Brock will be back with a vengeance, but for the meantime it’s Cain Velasquez’s time to rule in the UFC Heavyweight division.
Amidst all the excitement leading up to UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez over the past month, this week was equally stacked with the arrival of a few new signature tees, EA Sports MMA finally hitting store shelves and enough MMA related video content floating around cyberspace to keep us all entertained. Let’s check out a few top picks from the from past seven days or so.
Silver Star x Diego Sanchez UFC 121 Walkout Shirt:
Diego Sanchez undoubtedly made a statement this past weekend with one of the most impressive and dominating performances of his career since dropping his “Nightmare” nickname and re-focusing his training and overall lifestyle, with an emphasis on God, his family and apparently wreaking pure havoc on the UFC Welterweight division. Sanchez is back, better than ever, and his new Silver Star “Family First” signature tee, which was worn for his walkout at UFC 121, pretty much sums it all up.

Dethrone Royalty T-shirts:
No question, Dethrone Royalty took top prize at UFC 121 for walkout shirt of the night worn by Cain Velasquez. If you haven’t had a good look at his signature gear, check out the Dethrone Royalty Cain Velasquez UFC 121 Fight Gear Recap. Although Cain’s signature shirts are currently all the rage, I’ve got to give praise once again this week to some of the other new arrivals from the Dethrone collection including the “Drips” and “Apocalypse” tees (shown below). A combination of simple styling mixed with crisp graphics, Dethrone’s latest line is on point. To check out the latest additions to the range including the two styles below, click here.
EA Sports MMA Video Vignettes:
Despite taking what seemed to be forever for this game to finally get released, EA Sports MMA appears to be well worth the wait. Both the graphics and game-play are great, plus the roster of playable characters is pretty impressive as well. Adding a bit of fuel to the fire prior to the game hitting store shelves this past week, former Pro Wrestling promoter Paul Heyman joined forces with the EA Sports MMA team on creating this entertaining set of promotional video clips including the likes of Frank Shamrock, Gilbert Melendez and Fabricio Werdum.
