Happy New Year!

For those mixed martial arts (MMA) fans who spent their Friday night pre-gaming for the inevitable drink-tank that consumes a majority of the male population of New Year's Eve, you missed a pretty historic pay-per-view (PPV) event that closed out Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) 2011 fight campaign.

Brock Lesnar retired from active competition, Alistair Overeem made a successful UFC debut and Jon Fitch got KTFO by a guy with a bushy beard.

Nate Diaz also turned in a career performance against Donald Cerrone and shattered a CompuStrike record in the process. Oh, and if you never heard of Jim Hettes, you will.

Just ask Nam Phan.

UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem" went out with a bang, and hopefully you did too (literally and figuratively). Here's what happened at the Friday night fights from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Check it all out (plus a few bonus links on Fedor Emelianenko) after the jump.
