168 Presser and Bonus and Recap

Read on for news and notes from the UFC 168 post-fight press conference...
UFC president Dana White presided over the UFC 168 post-fight press conference and announced the night's bonuses:

Bantamweights Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate took home Fight of the Night honors, and Rousey also earned an extra check for Submission of the Night for her third-round finish. Heavyweight Travis Browne won Knockout of the Night after using elbows to knock out Josh Barnett in a minute flat.

Rousey, Tate and Browne attended the conference along with four additional victors on the card: defending middleweight champion Chris Weidman, lightweight Jim Miller, featherweight Dustin Poirier and middleweight Uriah Hall.

Other announcements and exchanges of note:

-Rousey will next headline UFC 170 against fellow Olympic medalist Sara McMann. That event takes place February 22 in Las Vegas; Rashad Evans vs. Daniel Cormier -- originally announced as the headliner -- will now be featured in the co-main event.

-Former champion Anderson Silva was transported to the hospital to undergo immediate surgery on his leg, which snapped in the main event when Weidman checked a kick.

-White praised Strikeforce import Bobby Voelker for taking on all comers -- including a short-notice fight over the summer against current welterweight title contender Robbie Lawler -- and always moving forward. "He's 0-3 right now [in the UFC], he's not going anywhere," said White. "We don't cut guys like that."

-UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort also attended the press conference -- in the crowd. He took the microphone to thank Weidman for accepting his challenge to compete for the middleweight belt.

-Rousey, Hall and Browne got giggly during a tangent-turned-tawdry involving exercise equipment in Rousey's home.
