The official results are as follows:
- Georges St. Pierre (170) vs. Matt Hughes (170) (UFC interim welterweight title)
- Chuck Liddell (204) vs. Wanderlei Silva (205)
- Soa Palelei (262) vs. Eddie Sanchez (239)

- Jordan Radev (185) vs. Dean Lister (186)
- Roan Carneiro (170) vs. Tony DeSouza (170)
- Doug Evans (155) vs. Mark Bocek (155)
Chuck Liddell tried to add some last second hype to his fight with an intense staredown with Silva, followed by a middle finger and on-stage scuffle. For those interested in the drama, this may be an enjoyable watch on replay. In other related news, Matt Hughes is definitely not the crowd favorite.
