In a night that personified the visceral splendor that is mixed martial arts, it seemed inevitable Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar would deliver its crowning moment. And they didn't disappoint.

Henderson and Edgar traded blows for five rounds in the main event of UFC 144, capping the year's most electrifying night of fights in aptly spectacular fashion. Ultimately the judges awarded Henderson the unanimous decision victory (49-46, 48-47, 49-46) and with it the UFC lightweight strap, despite a valiant effort from the fallen champion.

Though once again the result was as razor-thin as they come, and while Henderson reveled in the afterglow of his greatest professional triumph, a slew of fellow fighters flooded the digital plains with their scorecards of the controversial title tilt.
