UFC 140 Post-Fight Press Conference Notes

Highlights from the UFC 140 post-fight press conference, held at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON.
Six fighters attended the UFC 140 post-fight press conference alongside company president Dana White: reigning light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, his opponent Lyoto Machida, and main card winners Frank Mir, Rogerio Nogueira, Chan Sung Jung and Brian Ebersole.

The event's Fight of the Night bonuses went to headliners Jones and Machida. Jones stopped Machida in the second, but was rocked by the former champ in the first, seemingly the first time in his young career that Jones has been in danger. White reminded the media that Jones is the first light heavyweight since Chuck Liddell to defend his belt and said he has no doubt that "Jon Jones is the real deal."

The award for Submission of the Night went to Mir. White dubbed the brutal armbar of Minotauro Nogueira the "Submission of the Century." KO of the Night went to Jung, aka the Korean Zombie, for tying the official UFC record for fastest knockout. Jung's fight against Canadian favorite Mark Hominick ended in just seven seconds.

Each bonused fighter received $75,000.

At the press conference, White also announced the introduction of the UFC's 125-pound flyweight division, beginning with the March 3 event.
