GSP/Koscheck FOTN was voted by fans and it was a one time thing.

I was a happy girl until the prelims started.  It says a lot about how a card turned out when all the bonuses go to the prelim guys. I love Scotty, but I agree that the Shank/Martinez was FON. But  I agree with Yves getting  the KON.  Every time Jeremy, throws a punch, you can feel the power.  I love both guys but congrats to Yves, the smoothest cat in el mundo.

Sadly BJ, Shogun and Diaz fan.  Not a great night for me.   It hurt to watch.

Totaly in agreement on YVES EDWARDS getting KO of the night. Cruikshanks was great also but .........YVES was against JEREMY STEPHENS a much more proven and high profile opponent who has fought some monsters and never been KO'ed.Got to give Jorgensen credit for going for it and getting the sub but other better fights for FOTN. Dana must want to really reward Jorgensen for some reason, really likes him.

Hey, they gave GSP/Condit FOTN which was about the most one-sided, GnP beat down session as you could imagine, aside from the one knockdown scored by Condit. GSP also has FOTN awards against Fitch and Koscheck which some of the judges scoring those fights 50-44 and 50-43, so one-sided domination FOTN awards aren't out of the ordinary. I think Cruickshank/Martinez or Bendo/Diaz should have gotten FOTN last night. Maybe not Penn/Rory because that pace of the 3rd round really slowed, but I think its important to weigh the fact that one fighter takes an enormous amount of punishment yet doesn't mentaly give up and still continues to try to engage.

Lol, are you for serious right now?  They definitely made the right call.  The fact that you're even mentioning Penn/Rory, Bendo/Diaz, or Cruickshank/Martinez is absurd.  I mean, MAYBE Shogun/Gus had a little more back and forth but it is called "Fight of the Night", not "most dominant one-sided victory of the night".  Jorgensen Albert was really the only back and forth match (albeit for one round) so an easy FOTN honors IMO.   I do agree with you that Kruickshank should've got KOTN but to be fair he had Martinez so rocked at that point it was just a matter of landing the next shot, Yves (IMO) showed more skill with his KO finish over Stephens.

figured shogun/gus would be FOTN2xbonuses for Scotty, not mad about it. Good to see the undercard fighters making extra money
