UFC on FX 8 may have been short on stars, but the few that were in the arena on Saturday night made their presence felt with style.

Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza put on an absolute clinic, lulling Chris Camozzi into unconsciousness within a matter of seconds after locking in a first-round arm triangle for his UFC debut. And then came Vitor Belfort. An underdog once again, the old lion saved his best trick for last, unleashing a devastating spinning heel kick that toppled Strikeforce's other middleweight standout, Luke Rockhold, midway through the main event's opening frame.

It was as spectacular of a knockout as they come, one that may have opened the door for Belfort to seize the UFC middleweight championship rematch that's eluded him for so long. And all along the way, Belfort's supporters and critics within the MMA community were there to weigh on the carnage.
