From top to bottom, it was the most stacked Fox card yet.

Likely scheduled by network brass to bridge the gap between NFL’s conference championship weekend and the Super Bowl, UFC on Fox 6 succeeded in filing the void with an effort that will likely trump the one on display at Sunday's annual AFC versus NFC Pro Bowl.

With brutal finishes and lightning-quick submissions providing fodder for the masses, here’s how the MMA community reacted to the happenings on Twitter:

Watching UFC...Help me understand, in a sport where the best man wins and rules seems limited, why wouldn't Nick Newell get a chance?

Does this even count as violence? Not even John McCain would have been offended by this fight.

— Jonathan Snowden (@mmaencyclopedia) January 27, 2013

Demetrious Johnson is the best 5 round fighter MMA has ever seen.

Got hit in the POP ROCKS

— Dana White (@danawhite) January 27, 2013

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the cage that makes the small dogs looks so small.

Errr, not sure John McCarthy was a great ref choice here. And that's not a shot at his officiating ability....

Tired, slow, beat up / silver lining on this cloud / TNA is worked. #ufconfox

You can almost hear Rampage's free-agent value plummeting.

Body kick knockout / a brand new highlight reel knee / what's he gotta do? #ufconfox

They're drug testing tonight, right? I have a feeling Cerrone's urine sample is going to have a pink tint after that live shot.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) January 27, 2013

Pettis =AMAZING!!!! Ok I'm sold

— Dana White (@danawhite) January 27, 2013

Koch just walked back to his locker room. It looks the Koch Head alien from his tattoo has taken up residence in his eye socket. Oof.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 27, 2013

calm down yall it's just blood, everyone drinks it

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) January 27, 2013

I suspect FOX isn't in love with that blood, but I sure am.

Unlike many fighters, T.J. Grant has actually earned the right to tattoo something ridiculous on his forearms.

— Dann Stupp (@MMAjunkieDann) January 27, 2013

Eric Koch looks like a blank create-a-fighter that nobody had any time to customize

With Chael's John Holmes reference, and now Guida's mustache, feel like we're in the sordid '70s.

— Chuck Mindenhall (@ChuckMindenhall) January 27, 2013

I'll admit it; just looking at Guida makes me wish I had a net or a tranquilizer gun.

— ♥Yael Grauer♥ (@yaelwrites) January 26, 2013

Officer down.

— TJ De Santis (@TJDeSantis) January 26, 2013

i wonder if they will let Russow fight with his shirt on?
