Monday Morning Scrap: UFC 107: 'Penn vs. Sanchez' weekend in review

Fans of mixed martial arts were once again treated to an action-packed weekend chock full of fights thanks to The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) putting forth a bevy of top stars in the heat of battle for its final event of the 2009 fight campaign.

UFC 107: "Penn vs. Sanchez" went down last Saturday night (Dec. 12) from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee and featured a main event of BJ "The Prodigy" Penn vs. Diego "Nightmare" Sanchez for the 155-pound title. Heavyweight stalwart Frank Mir answered the call of Cheick Kongo in the night's co-main event.

When the smoke cleared, was anyone really that upset about not having Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson as headliners?

Also making his return to the Octagon was two-time lightweight  number one contender Kenny Florian as he tried to put termites into the career of Clay "The Carpenter" Guida.

In cased you missed any or all of it — or just want to keep the discussion alive — below are links to all the major storylines coming out of Saturday's blockbuster pay-per-view.

Let’s get to it.
