Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the Versus cable television network last night (Aug. 14) for its fifth installment of the "Live" series with UFC on Versus 5: "Hardy vs. Lytle," featuring an action-packed main event throwdown between Dan Hardy and Chris Lytle.

"Lights Out" submitted "The Outlaw" in a thrilling war of attrition and retires from active competition on top.

But that's not all, of course, as a couple other stars also left their mark on the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

That includes former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) lightweight champion Ben Henderson, who knocked Jim Miller from his 155-pound perch with a dominant performance in the night's co-main event.

Speaking of WEC imports, Donald Cerrone continues to make a mockery of the lightweight division since his Octagon debut earlier this year, flattening Charles Oliveira with a fight-ending body blow.

And yes, the televised fight card got started with a "Bang" courtesy of Duane Ludwig.

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 stemming from Sunday night's event in "Brew City."
