Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to pay-per-view last Saturday night (Aug. 6, 2011) with UFC 133: "Evans vs. Ortiz 2," featuring Rashad Evans successfully making his return to action after over a year away from the cage by ending the Cinderella story of "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy," Tito Ortiz.

But that's not all.

Middleweight sluggers Vitor Belfort and Yoshihiro Akiyama met in the center of the cage, as promised, and delivered a stunning knockout finish, via "The Phenom" crumpling "Sexyama," again, as promised.

And what else is there to say about the performance of Brian Ebersole (other than his opponent Dennis Hallman's choice of cage attire and unfortunate wardrobe malfunction)?

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 we go.
