Eight fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® on FOX post-fight press conference - Benson Henderson, Gilbert Melendez, Daniel CormierJosh Thomson, Matt Brown, TJ Dillashaw, Chad Mendes, and Joseph Benavidez.

Brown and opponent Jordan Mein earned Fight of the Night for their main card-opening battle. After an exciting, back-and-forth first round, Brown landed a series of knees and punches that dropped his young opponent, forcing the referee to step in and wave off the fight.

In a night that saw a record-tying eight knockout victories, a double Knockout of the Night bonus was awarded to Thomson and Yoel Romero. Romero, a Strikeforce® import making his Octagon debut, earned a first-round stoppage of Clifford Starks via flying knee in the opening bout. Thomson, a former Strikeforce® champ returning to the UFC® after an eight-year absence, handed Nate Diaz his first knockout loss with a second-round head kick finish.

With no submission victories occurring at UFC® on FOX, no Submission of the Night bonuses were handed out.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts.

At the press conference's conclusion, White announced that the winner of the UFC® 160 bout between Gray Maynard and TJ Grant will get the next shot at Henderson's lightweight title.
