Dan Henderson and Shogun Rua earned Fight of the Night honors for their five-round instant classic. Additionally, Wanderlei Silva and Cung Le were awarded Fight of the Night bonuses for their battle that ended in the second.

Twenty-year-old Michael McDonald took home Knockout of the Night for his laser-precise finish of newcomer Alex Soto, a fight that lasted less than a minute. Submission of the Night went to Urijah Faber, who choked out Brian Bowles in the second after punishing him on the feet.
