UFC 183 results, recap, and wrap up: Anderson Silva returns, sends Nick Diaz to third straight loss

Wrapping up the UFC 183 weekend with quick links to all the major storylines.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) closed out a wild and wacky month of January by staging UFC 183: "Silva vs. Diaz," the promotion's latest and greatest pay-per-view (PPV) offering from inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Jan. 31, 2015.

And let's not pretend it went off without a hitch.

Aside from two competitors missing weight by a mile (more on that here), the featherweight showdown between Jim Hettes and Diego Brandao was canceled after "The Kid" was hospitalized prior to the event. Both fighters were paid their "show" money.

As for the rest of the card?

It was a hot-and-cold event from top-to-bottom, but the main story coming out of UFC 183 -- of course -- is the return of the surgically-repaired Anderson Silva, who spent 25 minutes banging it out with welterweight import and former Strikeforce champion Nick Diaz.

Missed some or all of the show? Too hung over from Super Bowl 49 to remember what happened?
