Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to FX this past Friday night (June 1, 2012) with The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 Finale: "Ellenberger vs. Kampmann," featuring Martin Kampmann catapulting himself near the front of the welterweight line by becoming the first man to stop Jake Ellenberger via strikes.

Watch out Carlos Condit. Or Georges St. Pierre. Or Johny Hendricks. Whatever.

Michael Chiesa completed the most heartwarming story TUF has seen in years, as he made his father proud by winning season 15 via rear-naked choke submission over Al Iaquinta in the finals.

And what's there to say about Justin Lawrence and his knockout of John Cofer?

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.

In we go.
