UFC on Fox 5: What's Next for the Winners and Losers?
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on Fox 5 was billed as the best card on network TV in MMA history, and for the most part it delivered in every way possible.

Many of the undercard fights were either fun to watch or fun to see how they ended. The opening fight that took a whopping 20 minutes to build up to ended with a huge KO from Matt Brown, which is always a great way to start off a card.

The BJ Penn-Rory MacDonald fight was tough to watch, but I still couldn't help but watch just to see Penn truly revert to being nothing more than a punching bag for the Canadian. Alexander Gustafsson and Mauricio Rua had a very entertaining first round, but then the rest of the fight went much of the way everyone had predicted.

In the main event Benson Henderson proved why he's the best in the world at 155 pounds. It's always a dangerous situation for a title fight to go all five rounds on network TV, but Nate Diaz did enough to warrant fans' continued interest as he showcased his BJJ skills despite being dominated.

The event was very entertaining to watch and discuss while on Twitter, but where do the fighters go from here? Let's look into the MMA crystal ball to see what's next for the winners and losers from the UFC on Fox 5 card.
