Post fight presser notes + Who got the bonuses?

WATCH THE FULL PRESSER HERE!



UFC.com has released a few highlights-videos from the presser, here are the links:

- Anderson Silva

- Shogun Rua and Forrest Griffin

- Big Nog

- Highlight of the entire presser


Presser notes:

- FOTN: Barboza vs Pearson. KOTN: Big Nog. SOTN: None. (Each bonus is 100.000$)

- Dana says it was the greatest crowd ever, he may come back to Rio every weekend from now on

- Forrest says the next logical step for Anderson is to fight two guys at a time

- Dana believes GSP and Anderson are both moving into positions were their superfight makes sense

- Big Nog says he was very nervous leading up to the fight. He ignored the crowd on the way out to the ring

- Silva says he wants to fight his own clone next

- Forrest says if he has to come back to Brazil again he wants to be given Pepto Bismol

- Forrest doesn't blame the fact that he didn't want to be in Brazil (Pregnant wife) on the loss

- Forrest has to leave quickly because his wife is on the verge of going into labor! Dana says thanks for taking the fight and sends him on his way

- Dana says Jon Jones is top 3 P4P and Shogun is back in the mix

- Anderson is asked about Sonnen, he acts scared (jokingly) and laughs it off

- Dana says Okami is at the hospital. He is not getting cut and is still one of the best 185'ers in the world (Yes, someone asked if Okami was getting cut)

- Dana says there is no chance of a seperate Brazil promotion, they are close to opening an office there though

- When a reporter from FOX Sports asks a question, Dana starts with "I love you man"

Cheers mate. Haha Forrest.

I'm kind of sick of Dana hinting toward Anderson vs GSP happening. I don't think it's ever going to happen. And he says the same thing after each guy wins a fight.

I've yet to see Palhares vs Miller but Pearson Barboza was meh!? It was amazing, the stand up was so technical, was really awesome to watch.

How did this turn into an Aldo/P4P thread - please keep it in the other thread where it started... This thread is for discussing the press conference - hence the title

Sadly, no - it wasn't shown last night for some weird reason.

So I did my best to make some notes from what people were saying on twitter
