Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view last Saturday night (Sept. 24, 2011) with UFC 135: "Jones vs. Rampage," featuring Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones defending his 205-pound crown for the very first time with a fourth round submission victory over Quinton Jackson.

But that's not all.

Former welterweight title contender Josh Koscheck shook off a few jabs to his surgically-repaired eye socket to swing away on Matt Hughes, knocking him out in the first round and potentially sending the Hall of Famer to off into the sunset.

And what else is there to say about the incredible performance turned in by Nate Diaz?

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 borne from Saturday night's event in Denver, Colorado.
