UFC 169 is in the books, and we were treated to an awesome night of fights, on the main card at least. Jose Aldo remains the undisputed king at 145 with his dominating decision win over Ricardo Lamas, Alistair Overeem got his much needed win against Frank Mir and Abel Trujillo scored a comeback KO over Jamie Varner.
The main event of the evening was the 135lb. title fight between Urijah Faber and Renan Barao, which ended after Barao rocked Faber early on and Herb Dean stepped in to halt the action. Faber protested the stoppage, and in hindsight it could have gone on longer; but would it have ended differently?
With such a stacked main card, there were plenty of talking points. Check out what Dana White, Chuck Liddell, Tim Kennedy, UFConFox, Joe Lauzon, Zombie Prophet, Ariel Helwani, and yours truly had to say about the evenings festivities:

Jose Aldo is having a sale on leg kicks, Lamas is getting painted— rory kernaghan (@Rorylowkick) February 2, 2014
I am mentally preparing myself for the train wreck that will be Lamas' leg in 25 minutes. #UFC169— Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA) February 2, 2014
Horrible stop— Chuck Liddell (@ChuckLiddell) February 2, 2014
Barao was looking up at Dean as if to say why aren't you stopping this but the punches didn't look like they were landing at all.— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) February 2, 2014
Urijah was hurt but that was a bad stoppage. #UFC169— Joe Lauzon (@JoeLauzon) February 2, 2014
