Four fighters attended The Ultimate Fighter Live Finale post-fight press conference: Martin Kampmann, Jake Ellenberger, Michael Chiesa and Al Iaquinta.

Two fighters received Knockout of the Night bonuses: Kampmann and Justin Lawrence. Kampmann survived an early knockdown from opponent Jake Ellenberger to finish Ellenberger with knees in the second round. Lawrence knocked John Cofer out cold with the headkick in the third round of an exciting bout. For their trouble, Lawrence and Cofer also earned Fight of the Night.

TUF Live winner Michael Chiesa was awarded Submission of the Night for his first-round technical submission of fellow finalist - and Team Faber member - Al Iaquinta. Chiesa took back Iaquinta's back, and sunk in a rear naked choke that put Ianquinta to sleep. The win capped off an emotional run for Chiesa, who lost his father shortly after moving into the TUF house.

All bonused fighters received $40,000 (Lawrence took home $80,000 for his two bonuses).
