  "That was not the fight of the night" It's weird that you guys keep saying matter how many times I read the link, or what websites I check, they all say Jlau and Sots were FOTN and got an extra 80k.

They should all thank Matt Hughes for the additional 5 grand they got. Glad to see BJ showing so much respect to Hughes in the post fight interview on

 Good for Joe, a fun fight to watch. Personally, I thought that the Simpson/Munoz and Brown/Foster fights were both exciting and FOTN caliber, but don't see a problem with Joe/George getting it since it was such action packed.... I am a fan of seeing decisions get the FOTN for some reason, I think to really reward both guys for showing up and putting it out there (I realize neither Brown/Foster or Lauzon/Sots were decisions).

^ Lytle I think.And I agree, no way Joe should get 80k after gassing 3 minutes in, Dana should have just handed out two Sub of the nights.
