Fight of the Night went to the main event fighters, Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit.  The two went the distance in a bloody battle to unify the welterweight championship.  St-Pierre controlled Condit with his superior grappling to garner a unanimous decision.  Condit had his moment in the third round, when he landed a high kick that dropped St-Pierre, but was unable to finish the champion.

The Knockout of the Night award came in the co-main event between Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann.  Hendricks solidified his status as the top contender in the welterweight division by dispatching of Kampmann in just 46 seconds with a devastating left hand.
