Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was back on pay-per-view this past Friday night (Dec. 30, 2011) with UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem," featuring Alistair Overeem earning his shot at Junior dos Santos and his heavyweight title by sending Brock Lesnar into retirement with a first round technical knockout stoppage.

Nate Diaz also impressed with his three-round unanimous decision win over Donald Cerrone in a 15-minute war of attrition that resulted in everyone going home happy. That's probably because the "Fight of the Night" bonus they earned netted them a cool $75,000.

And that's not even mentioning Johny Hendricks, who put himself on the welterweight map with a 12-second knockout of Jon Fitch.

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 Friday night's event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
