If this wasn't the best night in the short history of the UFC on FOX franchise, I don't know what is. Certainly the first event had bigger stakes, but from top to bottom tonight's fight card at the Staples Center in Los Angeles delivered in every way.

Redemption wasn't meant to be for Brandon Vera, but he turned in a more than honorable performance. Lyoto Machida dispatched with Ryan Bader and earned a title shot in the process. Joe Lauzon and Jamie Varner put on an incredible performance in a back and forth war. And Mike Swick battled back from illness and a tough DaMarques Johnson to get his UFC career on track again.

It's not clear what kind of ratings the night will earn, but what we do know is there was enthusiasm shared by all kinds of MMA luminaries through the sensational night of action. Here are some of their Tweets during the evening's festivities.
