UFC president Dana White tweeted the winners of the UFC Fight Night 25 Fight Night Awards after the conclusion of the event in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The awards were:
- Knock Out of the Night: Jake Ellenberger
- Submission of the Night: T.J. Waldburger
- Fight of the Night: Lance Benoist vs. Matt Riddle
All awards were $55,000.
Ellenberger viciously finished ex-Strikeforce and Pro-Elite champ Jake Shields in fifty seconds in the event's headliner. Waldburger caught UFC Mike Stupf with a triangle choke after chaining through about a dozen serious submission attempts in the course of the two round fight. Benoist and RIddle had the rare experience of putting on a great barnburner of a fight that absolutely demanded Fight of the Night honors and still getting booed by the crowd. At least Benoist and the decision were booed heavily.
