Saturday night is usually reserved for a game of puck in Chicago, but the Blackhawks gave way to the Octagon for UFC on Fox 10. The defending Stanley Cup champions were nowhere to be found, replaced by another sport heavy on action that could satiate the fans of the Windy City.
One tradition that's alive and well in hockey is the "Three Stars" at the end of the night. Win or lose, once the final buzzer goes three players who participated in the game will be called back to the ice for a little victory lap and a salute to the fans.
It's a great ritual, one that embraces sportsmanship after chaos in a way that's often seen in MMA. It's also one that's kind of adaptable to a card of caged combat.
With that in mind, here at the three stars of the evening for Chicago's UFC on Fox 10.
