After a six-week sabbatical that promotion officials would probably like to forget, the UFC was welcomed back into action on Saturday night by the delirious roars of Swedish fight fans packing Stockholm's sold-out Ericsson Globe Arena to witness UFC on FUEL 2.

With a card sporting six submission finishes and two very, very violent knockouts, one would be hard-pressed to say the Nordic debut was anything but a success. Yet budding hometown hero Alexander Gustafsson still found a way to send the crowd off right, outclassing Thiago Silva over three rounds to take a clear-cut judges' decision and cement his place in the upper-echelon of the UFC's light heavyweight division.

As always, as the spectacle unfolded, a flood of professional fighters from across the world chirped in via Twitter to offer their thoughts on the event.
