UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry Press Conference

Highlights from the UFC Live: Kongo vs. Barry press conference
It was a card fraught with changes, including a main event revised three times, but in the end the fighters pulled off one of the best events in recent memory.

Hear from the men of the main (Cheick Kongo and Pat Barry) and co-main (Rick Story and Charlie Brenneman) events, plus Dana White and main card winners Matt Brown and Matt Mitrione at the post-fight press conference.

Dana White announced four well-deserved $50,000 bonuses. Joe Lauzon received Submission of the Night honors for his under-two-minutes win over Curt Warburton. Cheick Kongo scored Knockout of the Night after coming back from what appeared to be two flash knockouts to deliver what Joe Rogan described as "one of the craziest stoppages I have ever seen."

Nik Lentz and Charles Oliveira took home Fight of the Night for their dynamic seven minutes in the Octagon. Oliveira was awarded the victory, but an inadvertent illegal knee started the chain of events that led to Lentz' second-round tapout, and many expect the decision to be overturned by the commission.
