UFC on Fox 5: "Henderson vs. Diaz" blew the roof off the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, last night (Sat., Dec. 8, 2012) featuring a main event of Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson doing Nate Diaz dirty for five full rounds.

A good old fashion passionate 25-minute ass whooping.

The co-headlining attraction saw Alexander Gustafsson put his name at the top of the 205-pound contender heap by turning in a strong performance against Mauricio Rua in a unanimous decision victory.

The other two main card bouts saw Rory MacDonald destroy B.J. Penn so badly UFC President Dana White hopes to see "The Prodigy" retire while Matt Brown knocked out Mike Swick to end his inspirational comeback story.

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 Seattle.
