What's the most violent card you can remember?

For as much as the UFC and MMA in general has moved into mainstream media, it is still a sport built on violent acts against other people. Just like with any contact sport, there are occasionally some extremely gruesome injuries. What I want to know is what is the most violent card ever in both UFC and MMA history, or at least what everyone else thinks. For me, I would have to say it would have to be either UFC fight for the troops 1 or UFC 140. Fight for the troops had two of the most gruesome injuries I've ever seen when Razak Al-Hassan forgot how to tap and Steve Cantwell snapped his arm. Then there was the now infamous Corey Hill-Dale Hart fight in which Hills leg snapped like a twig and wrapped his fibia around Hart's about 2 minutes into the fight. That image still haunts me to this day. It also had some great knockouts, Koschecks over Yoshiyuki Yoshido comes to mind. UFC 140 though, was ridiculous. From Chan Sung Jung steamrolling hominick in 6 seconds to Dennis Hallman beating up John Makdessi in what looked like a high school ass kicking the card had tons of knockouts and violent finishes. Igor Prokassakodsakodasjoivic essentially sent Krystof skhskhskhsinski into retirement with some Brutal GnP, Constantious Phillippou killed Jarred Hamman in the Octagon (Go rewatch the fight, it is unbelievably brutal and Hamman survives to take a beating for far too long. It is like a car accident that keeps going.) and Lil Nog beat the HELL out of Tito's ribs en route to a TKO. Then of course, there was Mir-Nog 2. Je-sus Christ. I think everyone watching that fight let out a cringe at the exact same time when Nog's arm snapped. Not only was it almost sickening to watch, but the camera was at the perfect angle right in front of them that you could see the full snap of the arm. Just when things couldn't get any crazier, Machida finds a way to steal a round from Jon Jones before Jones decided to murder-choke him into dreamland in the second. That image of Machida just dropping cold to the mat, with that empty look in his eyes as Jones steps over him so nonchalantly as was instantly iconic. All in all, Fight for the troops is a close number 2 (Who could forget Ben Saunders launching a barrage of knees on Brandon Woulf?!) but UFC 140 had a 75% finish rate, two of the nastiest submissions in MMA history, some serious crazy knockouts, and stands out for me as the most violent card I can remember watching. What other good ones am I forgetting?
