Fight of the Night went to headliners Franklin and Wanderlei Silva.

Despite nearly being knocked out late in the second round, Franklin hung on to earn a unanimous decision.

Vinicius earned Knockout of the Night for his come-from-behind stoppage of Wagner Campos. "Vina" survived several submission attempts from Campos before using knees and punches to end the fight in the third frame.

Damm received Submission of the Night for his first-round victory over Anistavio Medeiros. After dropping Medeiros with punches, Damm was able to sink in the fight-ending rear naked choke with little resistance.

For their efforts, each bonused fighter received $65,000.
