Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view this past Saturday night (Jan. 28, 2012) with UFC 143 "Diaz vs. Condit," featuring "The Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit busting his hump to earn a unanimous decision victory over Nick Diaz and the interim UFC welterweight championship.

And a date with Georges St. Pierre later this year.

Fabricio Werdum impressed in his three-round beatdown of Roy Nelson, showcasing a far more diverse game than we've come to expect from the Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace.

And what's there to say about Josh Koscheck's performance against Mike Pierce? No, really, what's there to say?

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 Las Vegas.

In we go.
