Fighters in attendance included all of the bonus winners as well as the stars of the co-main event, Cezar "Mutante" Ferreira and Daniel Sarafian (Ferreira won the bout via split decision) and Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante, who TKOd Igor Pokrajac via knees in the first round.

Main event fighter Dan Henderson did not attend as he was transported to the hospital for routine evaluation.

During the press conference, White confirmed that barring injury or other unpredictable event, Belfort's next fight will be a title shot against the winner of Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva, which takes place at UFC 168 next month.
