ufc_live"UFC Live: Vera vs. Jones" was attended by 6,443 fans at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado, for a total live gate of $568,125. Reported fighter salaries, combined with four $50,000 bonuses, led to a total fighter payroll of $915,000, a figure that does not include undisclosed "locker room" bonuses.

While no "Fight of the Night" bonus was dispersed, three fighters earned "Knockout of the Night" honors. In the evening's main event, Jon Jones earned his bonus after landing a crushing elbow to the side of Brandon Vera's head immediately causing the fighter to cover up and resulting in three broken bones. Junior Dos Santos also earned the award following his win over Gabriel Gonzaga where he dropped the fighter with a left hand and followed him to the mat, raining down blows until the referee stepped in. Finally, John Howard earned the third bonus after his ground-and-pound destruction of Daniel Roberts that left his opponent stiff on the mat with his eyes rolled back into his head.

"Submission of the Night" went to Clay Guida following his arm-triangle choke victory over Shannon Gugerty in the second round.
