Although betting odds made UFC 156 look like one of the more one-sided main cards in ages, the underdogs came out swinging on Saturday.
From the preliminary bouts all the way to the main event, just about every fight had its memorable moments, with several former Strikeforce fighters putting their stamp on the UFC in emphatic fashion.
And while Bobby Green, Tyron Woodley, Isaac Vallie-Flagg and Antonio Silva all walked away with big wins, even the overmatched Frankie Edgar was admirable in defeat, taking the fight to featherweight champion Jose Aldo in his usual "comeback" style.
It's been a while since a UFC card was that surprising, and it serves as a brilliant reminder of why MMA is such an unpredictable sport. Read along as we recap a dozen of the most memorable moments to come out of UFC 156 from Las Vegas.
