UFC 161 looked to be a great card on paper when it was announced months back, we had Renen Barao defending his title, Little Nog battling Shogun, Henderson vs Machida and more!

Coming into Saturday the main question besides what would the outcome of the main event between GSP and Nick Diaz was could the card possibly live up to the two months of hype?
