The lightweight scrap that opened the televised portion of "The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale" was awarded by the UFC the Fight of the Night.
As part of the beginning of his reinvention, Junie Browning outstruck David Kaplan and eventually put Kaplan on the mat to finish with an armbar. Browning's much improved performance was enough for the UFC to declare his fight the Fight of the Night.
Anthony "Rumble" Johnson won the Knockout of the Night for his Cro Crop-esque head kick knockout against Kevin Burns.
IFL veteran Krzysztof Soszynski won the Submission of the Night for his second-round kimura on Shane Primm.
Browning, Kaplan, Johnson and Soszynski each earned a $25,000 bonus for winning these UFC post-fight awards.
