Today's UFC Fight Night: 34 took place in Singapore and did not air on any U.S. television station but we've still got you covered with card results and video of the post-event press conference. Results are below and highlights of the post-event presser, including "of the night" awards, after that.

The card's Hawaiians were big winners today in Singapore as Doane took home $50,000 for "Submission of the night," and Holloway also got a bonus check for fifty grand for KO of the night. Doane said he planned to buy a dog with his bonus.
Either he's planning to purchase a very expensive canine or he'll just use a portion of the $50,000 to buy a new best friend.
Saffiedine did not attend the press conference because medical staff was still tending to him after his war with Lim. For his part, Lim attended the presser but was almost carried to it by his cornermen.
Addressing the assembled media with a badly swollen left eye, Lim said that his corner almost threw in the towel on his behalf in the fourth round because of the punishment he was taking from Saffiedine's leg kicks. Luckily, they didn't and the South Korean was able to not just survive but mount his own flurry in the final round that nearly put Saffiedine out.
Saffiedine and Lim each earned $50,000 bonus checks for "Fight of the night."
