After the bizarre finale to UFC 168, the MMA community is still struggling to overcome the horrific end to the evening's main event bout between middleweight champion Chris Weidman and former kingpin Anderson Silva.
Weidman lifted his leg, turned his knee and checked the kick heard around the world.
Georges St-Pierre voluntarily retired weeks ago, whereas Silva might be forced to do the same in light of his crippling leg fracture.
MMA's new guard has much work ahead of it in 2014.
There is an upside, though. The rest of the evening was rather terrific.
Travis Browne continued his destructive run, as did Ronda Rousey. In fact, the entire main card was devoid of a single decision.
Let's take a moment to examine whose stock went up, whose went down and what the consequences of this monumental fight card are likely to be.
