Eight fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 153 post-fight press conference: Jon Fitch, Glover Teixeira, Demian Maia, Rony Jason, Phil Davis, Anderson Silva, Erick Silva, and Minotauro Nogueira.

Fitch and Silva earned Fight of the Night for their exciting, back-and-forth brawl. Fitch was able to impose his will in the first round, roughing up Silva on the ground and against the cage. Silva threatened with submissions in the second frame, but was unable to put Fitch away. Fitch returned the favor in the final round, and was awarded the unanimous decision.

Jason received Knockout of the Night for his stoppage of fellow TUF alum Sam Sicilia. Both fighters traded blows throughout the fight, with Jason eventually dropping Sicilia before finishing up with ground strikes.

In a night that saw four victories by submission, Nogueira was awarded Submission of the Night for his second-round tapout of Dave Herman. "Big Nog" used his boxing to get the fight to the ground, where he locked on an armbar that eventually forced Herman to tap.

Each bonused fighter received $70,000 for their efforts.
