It was a finisher's row in Fortaleza as UFC on FUEL TV 10 winners Fabricio Werdum, Leonardo Santos, Thiago Silva, and Erick Silva followed up their submission and TKO wins by attending the post-fight press conference. TUF Brasil finalist William "Patolino" Macario also attended. The press conference was hosted by Marshall Zelaznik, the UFC's managing director of international development.
