Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view this past Saturday night (May 26, 2012) with UFC 146: "Dos Santos vs. Mir," featuring the very first successful title defense of Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos, who planted Frank Mir en route to a technical knockout victory.

Could we be looking at another dominant reign from a Brazilian striker?

Cain Velasquez might have something to say about that, especially considering he earned himself a rematch against "Cigano" by utterly dismantling Antonio Silva in the co-main event of the evening. Strikeforce? More like Strikefarce, amirite?

And what's there to say about Roy Nelson and his knockout of Dave Herman? Or Stefan Struve and his submission of Lavar Johnson?

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.
