UFC 156's Best photographs

UFC 156
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

So UFC 156 is done and dusted. February the 2nd saw Las Vegas host the return of UFC. With a strong line up on the cards there was plenty of potential title eliminator fights. As the world watched on various media outlets from Facebook to FX, UFC was as entertaining as ever for it's enduring fans.

The headline event saw Jose Aldo overcome Frankie Edgar via a unanimous decision. Whilst the shock of the night came with Antonio "Big Foot" Silva pulling of an incredible performance to defeat Alistair Overeem in the 3rd round by TKO.

As I'm sure you'll agree, I couldn't not put a ring girl in. Having looked through the images from the night, Brittaney Palmer caught my eye the most.. Anyway, my other favourite picture has to be the slight comedy that comes on slide number 6. Although, Bobby Green in number 3 does look rather 'Epic'. Credit to Gary A. Vasquez for the photos (from USA TODAY Sports), some great shots as usual from one of the USA's top photographers.

With the world's media and photographers ring side, I've collated some of the best pics of the night. Take a look.
