Hunt & Silva earn 'Fight of the Night' and win bonuses

 

Tonight's main event between Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva may be one of the best heavyweight fights ever to go to a decision. Silva opened the fight strong, winning the first two rounds, but Hunt rallied back with a strong third round and the last two were close. 

UFC President Dana White, who has been known to award situations were both fighters fight like warriors, announced that Silva and Hunt would receive the $50,000 'Fight of the Night' bonus.

If that weren't enough, White also said that both fighters would receive their win bonus, depsite the bout being declared a majority draw:

Both Hunt and Silva win FON and both get their win bonus and I might buy them both their own private ISLANDS!!!! Sickest HW fight ever!!!

White continued to praise the two heavyweights on Twitter for an excellent performance:

I agree that I have NEVER been so happy with a draw in my life! I am happy it was a draw. Winner of that fight is US the fans!!!

We see the smaller guys struggle in the 5 round fights and these guys were 265 pounds plus. It amazing they were still fighting in the 5th after all the damage they did to each other .

Your opinion sucks because it is wrong. I have to admit having a bit of bias in favor of Hunt, but he isn't a mindless brawler. Will he eat two shots to deliver one? Yes. Does he carry a fucking STINGER in each hand? Yes. Is his boxing one of the greatest treats to watch in MMA right now? YES. YES IT IS.You are like the OPPOSITE of a Noob fan who only wants to see mindless brawls with lots of blood. You are like an MMA snob who looks down his nose at such people and then turn around and think that anything that isn't a GSP fight or any fight where both fighters turn into bloody, exhausted heaps must not have been technical at all or contained any skill or REAL martial arts. You are so wrong.
