White continued the positive tone by announcing the post-fight awards soon after. Gustafsson and opponent Jimi Manuwa were awarded Fight of the Night, with "The Mauler" also taking home Performance of the Night for finishing the fight by knockout. 

Welterweight Gunnar Nelson was also awarded Performance of the Night for his 24-second submission of UFC newcomer Omari Akhmedov. Nelson, who improved to 12-0, has won six of his last seven fights by submission.
