Seven fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 161 post-fight press conference - Rashad Evans, Dan Henderson, Roy Nelson, Stipe Miocic, James Krause, Alexis Davis, and Shawn Jordan.

Jordan earned Knockout of the Night for his main card-opening win over Pat Barry. "The Savage" lived up to his moniker, blitzing Barry early in the first round to force a quick stoppage. The victory was the only knockout on the card.

Krause had quite the UFC® debut, taking home both Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night bonuses for his three-round brawl with Sam Stout. After cutting Stout in the first round, Krause was able to secure a fight-ending guillotine choke late in the third frame.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts, with Krause receiving a total of $100,000.
