UFC 163 was one weird card. There were boring fights, long gaps between bouts, and a controversial decision. Still, there were fighters who stood out.

No. 1 star -- Anthony Perosh: In his last fight, Perosh was knocked out in seven seconds. He must have learned from the experience, because at UFC 163 he knocked out Vinny Magalhaes in just 14 seconds. Perosh won the $50,000 Knockout of the Night bonus.

No. 2 star -- Amanda Nunes: Fighting in Brazil, Nunes wanted to show her home crowd what she was capable of. She took out Sheila Gaff in just 2:08, with an overwhelming barrage of punches. A rematch with Alexis Davis would be a good next steps for her.

No. 3 star -- Sergio Moraes: Have you ever seen someone so happy to win a fight? Moraes won with a triangle choke over Neil Magny in the first round. Something that will make him smile even more is the $50,000 bonus he won for Submission of the Night.
