Saturday nights fights are now tied for the most knockouts in a UFC event with eight, four fighters brought home some extra casht for their performances. Matt Brown, Jordan Mein, Yoel Romero, and Josh Thomson each earned bonuses for their work at UFC on FOX 7.
Brown and Mein, walked away with “Fight of the Night” honors and extra $50,000 paychecks. After a tremendous body hook from Mein, Matt Brown regained his composure and offered his own elbows to the body to win the fight.
“Knockout of the Night” bonuses went to Josh Thomson and Yoel Romero for their exceptional use of leg strikes. Romero hit Clifford Starks with a flying knee before finishing him off with ground strikes to a TKO stoppage. Thomson, returning to the UFC after almost nine years landed a devastating kick to the head of Nate Diaz. He would follow it up with punches until the referee finaly stoped it. Both men would also earn an extra $50,000.
