Seven fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 156 post-fight press conference - Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Antonio Silva, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Demian Maia, Joseph Benavidez, and Tyron Woodley.

Aldo and Edgar received Fight of the Night for their headlining title fight. The two featherweights engaged in a standup battle that saw Aldo take the early rounds, with Edgar gaining ground in the final two frames. Aldo ultimately retained his title with a unanimous decision victory.

Silva earned Knockout of the Night for his come-from-behind stoppage of top contender Alistair Overeem. After losing the first two rounds, "Bigfoot" tagged Overeem with big punches in the third that clearly hurt Overeem. As Overeem crumpled to the mat, referee Herb Dean stepped in to stop the fight.

STRIKEFORCE® veteran Bobby Green took home Submission of the Night for his third-round victory over Jacob Volkmann. After weathering an early storm from Volkmann, Green found his rhythm, out-striking Volkmann in the second and third rounds before sinking in the fight-ending choke.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts.
