UFC on Fuel 10 was not short on finishes. All but 2 of the 12 fights ended in a KO, TKO, or submission, and the UFC has announced the post-event bonus winners for this evening.
Silvas sweep the #FUELTV10 bonuses: Fight of the Night - Thiago Silva vs. Rafael Feijao. Sub of the Night - Erick . KO - Thiago. $50K— UFC (@ufc) June 9, 2013
A very good night's work for Thiago Silva, but of course he only keeps the money if he can actually pass his drug test this time.
Some notes to pass along regarding tonight's bonus winners:
- Should Thiago pass his drug test, this will stand as his first FOTN and KOTN awards. He took home a SOTN against Stanislav Nedkov, but failed that drug test thus nullifying the result.
- Feijao joins Miesha Tate as the only other Strikeforce fighter this year to take home FOTN honors in a UFC debut. Unfortunately for both of them, they were knocked out in the process.
- This is Erick Silva's 2nd SOTN award, with his other one coming against Charlie Brenneman. He also won FOTN vs. Jon Fitch, so he's picked up bonus money in his last 3 fights.
There were 8 submissions and 2 knockouts tonight. Do you agree with the selections?
