The UFC returns Saturday night and Twitter was all over things, as UFC Fight Night 42 took place from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Benson Henderson put an exclamation point on the night, scoring a fourth round submission victory over Rustam Khabilov. The former UFC lightweight champion connected with a shot early in the round, locking up a quick rear-naked choke and finishing things off.

The co-main event left social media abuzz, as Diego Sanchez was awarded a split decision victory over Ross Pearson. Even Kenny Florian, providing commentary, apologized to Pearson after the result was announced.

John Dodson likely earned a future UFC flyweight title shot by earning a finish over John Moraga. The doctor stopped the fight due to a broken nose after Dodson landed a knee to the face.

Jason High lost to Rafael dos Anjos when the referee called a stop to the action upon dos Anjos going on the attack. High, who shoved the referee after the decision, apologized for his actions.

On the prelims, Scott Jorgensen and Danny Martinez engaged in an incredible brawl. The second round was hailed by many as the “round of the year” candidate.

Below are some of the more noteworthy tweets sent out during the night:
