Koscheck does not deserve fight of the night. Punching bag of the night maybe but he did nothing to earn fight of the night.

If Kos were a man he would give that bonus to Riddle. He actually put up a fight in his loss.

the Fight of the Night was decided by a fan vote. Dana said in press conference 'he'd take care of' Pierson and Riddle, which he thought was FOTN.

You're an ass.   They're probably going to do over a million buys tonight mostly due to Kos hyping & building up the fight like a madman.  He deserves more than 100K bonus and I hope he gets it.

i liked the riddle/pierson fight too but come on... some of the 'boxing' in that fight was embarrassing for a FOTN...

the GSP/Kos fight made my heart skip a beat a couple times so that should get it for sure

Koschek showed a lot of heart. He was looking for the one big punch the whole fight, trying to set it up, and dangerous to the end - and with an eye injury to boot.

GSP was the better fighter, but Koschek made it a real fight. Get in the cage with GSP yourself if you think its easy.

Toughman fight of the night. That fight was ridiculous. Fiddle punching air like a rockem sockem robot, and only you youth and chin and gas tank keeping him in there.

 I don't know about that. Typically only one fighter wins the bonus and the UFC still awarded $100,000 total, it was just split between two fighters.

It's a diplomatic way of spreading the bonus when more than one guy deserves it and I hope they do it more often in the future. Half of $100,000 or $80,000 is still a substantial amount.

Miller subbed a dangerous BJJ purple belt

Bocek subbed a dangerous BJJ black belt

Nothing against Miller and it was a slick sub but Bocke should have gotten the full $100 K on his own.

Matt Riddle threw 1000+ punches, none of them were even close. He looked stupid in there and I am glad he didn't get a bonus.
