Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

As the host of the most anticipated football matchup of the season, Super Bowl weekend is the annual pinnacle of American sports. Since 2004, the UFC has taken advantage of the competitive fever that sweeps the nation by providing fans with an epic fight card on Super Bowl Eve.

On Saturday night, the UFC treated fans to a night of huge matchups at UFC 156. In one of the most anticipated fights in recent memory, pound-for-pound great Jose Aldo defended his championship in the main event against former UFC lightweight kingpin Frankie Edgar. 

The highlight of the evening came when Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva upset Alistair Overeem with an incredible knockout in a featured contest.
