UFC RIO: Post-fight press conference

Highlights from the UFC Rio post-fight press conference
Dana White appeared at the post-fight press conference along with the night's big winners - all Brazilians - middleweight champion Anderson Silva, Shogun Rua and Minotauro Nogueira. Forrest Griffin - who Dana said was expecting his first child to be born in the US any second - also attended after his first-round loss to Rua.

Post-fight bonuses of $100,000 each were announced; Knockout of the Night went to Minotauro Nogueira for his upset of up-and-comer Brendan Schaub, while Edson Barboza and Ross Pearson earned the same amount for their main card Fight of the Night. Despite Brazil's long history of submission prowess (the phrase "finaliza," meaning "submission," trended on Twitter around UFC Rio), there were no tapouts on the card and thus no Submission of the Night bonus.
