UFC 168 began amid a swirl of rumor and excitement. What would happen in the two hotly anticipated rematches topping the card? What about Brock Lesnar? What about UFC Fight Pass?
At the end of the night, all of it had dissipated. A solid fight card culminated in a main event pitting Anderson Silva against Chris Weidman for the middleweight belt. The fight began with promise, but ended with a gasp of horror when Silva suffered a very bad leg fracture on a freak occurrence.
Silva's fighting future, and maybe any sort of athletic pursuit, is now in doubt. It could be a terrible way for the 38-year-old Brazilian, who is the greatest MMA fighter ever, to end his fight career.
And still, it was only one of five fights on the main card Saturday night in Las Vegas. What happened elsewhere on the card? The stat lines only tell you so much. Here are grades for every main card fighter at UFC 168.
