Brown and opponent Jordan Mein earned Fight of the Night for their main card-opening battle. After an exciting, back-and-forth first round, Brown landed a series of knees and punches that dropped his young opponent, forcing the referee to step in and wave off the fight.

Romero, a Strikeforce® import making his Octagon debut, earned a first-round stoppage of Clifford Starks via flying knee in the opening bout. Thomson, a former Strikeforce® champ returning to the UFC® after an eight-year absence, handed Nate Diaz his first knockout loss with a second-round head kick finish.

With no submission victories occurring at UFC® on FOX, no Submission of the Night bonuses were handed out.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts.

At the press conference's conclusion, White announced that the winner of the UFC® 160 bout between Gray Maynard and TJ Grant will get the next shot at Henderson's lightweight title.
