Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to cable television airwaves this past Saturday (April 14, 2012) with UFC on FUEL TV 2: "Gustafsson Silva," featuring Alexander Gustafsson continuing his rapid rise up the light heavyweight ladder by soundly defeating the returning Thiago Silva.

The next Jon Jones? We shall see.

Brian Stann got back on the hog despite extensive trouble at home with one of the sickest knockouts you'll see this year. That's because he put Alessio Sakara out with short shots from guard inside the first round.

And what's there to say about Siyar Bahadurzada and his 42 second destruction of Paulo Thiago?

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 Sweden.

In we go.
