Main card (all heavyweight) results:
- Stefan Struve d. Lavar Johnson, submission (Round 1)
- Stipe Miocic d. Shane Del Rosario, TKO (Round 2)
- Roy Nelson d. Dave Herman, KO (Round 1)
- Cain Velasquez d. Bigfoot Silva, TKO (Round 1)
- Junior Dos Santos (c) d. Frank Mir to retain the UFC Heavyweight Championship, TKO (Round 2)

Since all the fights ended so early, we got most of the prelims on the PPV:
- featherweight: Mike Brown d. Daniel Pineda (unanimous decision)
- light heavyweight: Glover Texeira d. Kyle Kingsbury, submission (Round 1)
- lightweight: Paul Sass d. Jacob Volkmann, submission (Round 1)
- lightweight: Dan Hardy d. Duane Ludwig, TKO (Round 1)
- lightweight: Jamie Varner d. Edson Barbosa, TKO (Round 1)

I wasn't going to order this show, but it may be one of the best impulse purchases I've ever made. This show ruled! I've seen cards with better fights, but this was possibly the show with the most fun fights that I've ever seen. Short, fast, high-action fights all over the place. Bigfoot got turned into a bloody mess making Cain look like a monster, Dan Hardy finally won one, Mike Brown won his retirement match, and oh yeah, Brock Lesnar showed up for Dos Santos/Mir. Meltzer said that Brock met with Dana and it didn't go well, but I haven't listened to the audio shows yet so I don't know anything beyond that.

Another great clutch display from the Irishman. Hard to believe that this was a guy who, a few years ago, was known for always coming in second and never closing in the deal in any tournaments, let alone in majors.
