Canadian bantamweight Mitch Gagnon won Submission of the Night for his win over Dustin Kimura. After engaging in a fierce first few minutes of the opening round, Gagnon survived a vicious kidney shot, then sprawled Kimura's takedown attempt, and used a guillotine choke to finish his challenger before the bell. 

Interim bantamweight champion Barao took home Knockout of the Night after his second-round KO of heavy-handed Eddie Wineland. After a fast-and-furious first round, Barao landed a spinning back kick early in the second round and finished the fight via ground-and-pound. 

Fight of the Night went to Jones and Gustafsson for their ultra-exciting title fight. The two light heavyweights engaged in a back-and-forth war which saw Jones walk away with unanimous decision and a new UFC record for most light heavyweight title defenses.

"Who doesn't want to see that rematch?" said a non-committal Dana White right before reminding reporters that Glover Teixeira could also be next in line. 

Each bonused fighter received $50,000 for their efforts.
