Five fighters joined UFC president Dana White at the UFC Fight Night Cincinnati post-fight press conference: Daron Cruickshank, Chris Cariaso, Costas Philippou, Soa Palelei, and Matt Brown.

Matt Brown and Erick Silva took home Fight of the Night for their main-event brawl. The pair went back and forth in the opening round before Brown took over in the second and eventually earned a TKO in the third round. Following the epic performance, White confirmed that Brown would get one of the top contenders in his next bout. 

Silva, who showed off an impressive jaw in the loss, was transported to the hospital immediately following the fight for a possible concussion and broken jaw. 

Bantamweight Johnny Eduardo and headliner Brown each earned Performance of the Night for their respective wins. Eduardo showed off an impressive mix of power and speed, finishing veteran Eddie Wineland with a vicious overhand right in the first round. 

Each winner was awarded $50,000.
