Prior to that, fans witnessed some great fights. Frankie Edgar, Tim Kennedy, Mark Munoz and Cub Swanson all found their hands raised at the end of their fights.
For those men, it's pretty clear as to what's next; moving up the UFC ladder to face stiffer competition.
But what about the guys who came out on the losing end? What's next for fighters like Charles Oliveira, who arguably could be considered a winner based on his performance, or Roger Gracie, who looked like he belonged on a regional show rather than in the Octagon?
With a card featuring many fights in the same weight class, the "what's next" question is fairly simple after UFC 162.
