Fight of the Night went to headliners Franklin and Wanderlei Silva.

Despite nearly being knocked out late in the second round, Franklin hung on to earn a unanimous decision.

Damm received Submission of the Night for his first-round victory over Anistavio Medeiros. After dropping Medeiros with punches, Damm was able to sink in the fight-ending rear naked choke with little resistance.

For their efforts, each bonused fighter received $65,000.
