Just a great card all around (despite the disappointment of Bader-Page).  Pretty much everyone on the card deserves a bonus.  Boetsch should def. be getting some sort of kickback, though.

He will.Here's hoping zuffa adds a "Comeback of the Night" bonus, as well as a "Beatdown of the night".

how is it lucky to try to kick someone in the head and then to do it?  Even Joe was extremely classy after and made a thread on the ug taking full repsonsibility for the loss and made no excuses.  That's like saying a nerdy kid studied for 3 years for the spellling B and then got lucky.   He didn't get lucky, he practiced a technique, and used it in a fight.

 Wow, considering the comeback, I kinda think Pettis robbed Boetsch of his KO of the night bonus. IMO, I was way more impressed by Boetsch's KO, than Anthony's.  Pettis threw a great kick and got lucky at he beginning of the fight (lucky that Joe thought it was going low, blocked, and ate it, not that it wasn't a beautiful kick).  Boetsch, on the other hand, get's fucking dominated for 2 rounds, comes back via a viscous uppercut KO (from an awkword position), he deserved KO of the night (IMHO).

 BLAF had to recognize this.  He was a big part of making the card up until page/bader incredible.

Dude, I'll be a little pissed if Boetsch doesn't get some type of financial recognition after his performance tonight.His fight elicited the greatest outburst of emotion all night long. Dude is the epitome of perseverance.
