UFC 166: Velasquez vs Junior Dos Santos Aftermath/Hangover/Results

Cain proved he has the durability, pressure, and skills to claim he is the best heavyweight in the UFC and likely the world for that matter.
Cormier looked dynamic as he likely has begun slimming down to fight at LHW.
Melendez battered Diego Sanchez to prove he's still one of the best LW's in the world.
Gonzaga proved he will still put you to sleep with his banana-peelin' hands if you get caught.
Dodson showed he's still one of the best flyweights to not wear the belt in his division.
Lombard keeps his job with a quick KO of the backsliding Marquardt.
Boetsch begins the slow ascent back to a title shot, perhaps.
KJ Noons beat a guy who hasn't won in a couple years but once was a title contender.

Not exactly a year end blockbuster insanity card, but it is what it is. The heavyweight fight was as good as good have been expected and a decisive stamp on the trilogy. Imagine if JDS had gotten a quick KO, we'd be in 4th fight territory.
