Former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin and former PRIDE light-heavyweight champion Wanderlei Silva took part in a back and forth battle and were presented with the much-deserved Fight of the Night award. In the end, though, it was Franklin who won the fight with scores of 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28.
The Knockout of the Night went to Mike "Quick" Swick, who dismantled fellow "The Ultimate Fighter" alum Ben Saunders with a flurry of punches. Once his opponent was grounded, Swick put an end to Saunders' night with repeated left punches.
There were three submissions total, all in the undercard, and it was a D'arce choke applied by Terry Etim on Justin Buchholz that won Submission of the Night.
The post-fight bonuses were also $60,000 at the previous UFC pay-per-view event, UFC 98 "Evans vs. Machida" on May 23.
