Seven fighters attended the UFC® on FX post-fight press conference - Ross Pearson, Norman Parke, Robert Whittaker, Hector Lombard, Chad Mendes, Cody Donovan and Benny Alloway.
Alloway earned Knockout of the Night for his first-round finish of castmate Manuel Rodriguez. After an odd series of events that saw the bout temporarily halted after a low blow by Alloway, "Benny Blanco" caught Rodriguez with a perfectly-timed kick to the jaw. After a few follow-up strikes on the ground, the ref stepped in to stop the fight.
Donovan and opponent Nick Penner took home Fight of the Night for their card-opening bout. The light heavyweights engaged in an exciting, back-and-forth brawl that newcomer Donovan won via TKO late in the first round.
With no bouts ending via submission, no Submission of the Night bonus was awarded.
All bonused fighters received $40,000 for their efforts.
