UFC 130's main events were less than thrilling, but the undercard delivered. Which fighters stood out?

No. 1 star -- Travis Browne: Coming off of an unsatisfying draw with Cheick Kongo, Browne was determined to not leave this one in the hands of the judges. Instead, he threw a superman punch that sent the 6-foot-11 Struve flying, and sent Browne home with an extra $70,000 in his pocket.

No. 2 star -- Brian Stann: Leave it up to a Marine to perform on Memorial Day weekend. Fighting a game Jorge Santiago, "The All-American" Stann dominated the bout and ended it with a KO near the end of the second-round.

No 3 star -- Tim Boetsch: In his first bout at middleweight, Boetsch showed that dropping an extra 20 lbs. didn't slow him down at all. He controlled Kendall Grove for every minute of the fight, using takedowns and ground-and-pound to earn a unanimous decision, and a spot as someone to watch in the middleweight division.
