  • $50k Fight of the Night bonuses went to Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Rose Namajunas
  • $50k Performance of the Night bonuses went to Tyron Woodley and Jake Ellenberger
  • Dave Sholler said Jedrzejczyk vs. Kowalkiewicz for the strawweight title is not a guarantee, but it is the type of fight they would make somewhere like Poland
  • Tyron Woodley joined the presser late after the other fighters had left
  • Woodley preferred Nick Diaz or Georges St-Pierre as future opponents over Stephen Thompson

Jake Ellenberger on how he felt after the fight:

You don’t forget the feelings after fights that don’t go well and you lose. That kinda really sat with me in preparation too because that really set the tone leading up to this fight, like my coaches have a lot of confidence in me and the training, I guess I put more of my heart and soul in preparation and it paid off.

and on the kick that landed to finish the fight:

We trained that kick quite a bit with a good friend of mine. We trained this kick specifically for a southpaw for quite a while. That was planned.

Karolina Kowalkiewicz on why she thinks she can beat Joanna Jedrzejczyk:

Joanna is very good fighter, I respect her very much. She is the best in the world, maybe I am not the best but I can beat the best.

and why the champion said that Kowalkiewicz was not ready for her yet:

I don’t know why. I think she’s scared, stuff like that.

Robbie Lawler on whether his many wars caught up with him tonight:

No I think it’s just a guy who took advantage of a big punch and rocked me and jumped on and finished the job. I’m not gonna speculate and I felt great going into the fight.

and whether there was any hesitancy fighting another American Top Team fighter:

Not at all. I’m a mean individual and this is what I do for a living so I would have had no problem doing the same to him.

on whether he feels he deserves a rematch:

Obviously I think if I went back in there I’d get a win. Deserve and actually getting are two different things, but yeah I feel like I deserve something but we’ll see if I get.

New welterweight champion Tyron Woodley on who he wants to fight next:

I wanna make some money, goal one is to be the welterweight champion of the world, I’ve put in too much time, I’m away from my family too much time. I think Nick Diaz comes off suspension in two days, I would love to fight him on (UFC) 202.
