The UFC's return to Japan proved to be a successful and monumental event.
Once the premiere destination for mixed martial arts events, Japan represented a homecoming of sorts to the spiritual motherland of martial arts and MMA.
The contests did not disappoint as a variety of martial arts techniques were on display.
There were wrestling slams, judo throws, jiu-jitsu submission grappling, muay thai strikes, boxing punches, and just about every bit of imagination and ingenuity you could hope to fit in between.
The live Japanese crowd and audiences tuning in worldwide were treated to a spectrum of the wonderful world of mixed martial arts in a memorable event.
