The free TV main event card at UFC on FOX 5 was phenomenal - easily worthy of a PPV. And in a testament to the excellence of the entire card, all the $65,000 performance bonuses were awarded to the undercard!

Fight of the Night:
Scott Jorgensen and John Albert ($65,000/each)

Submission of the Night:
Scott Jorgensen ($65,000)

Knockout of the Night:
Yves Edwards ($65,000)

Some of the worst OTN picks of all time.

Of course you have to give SOTN to Jorgensen as he had the only sub. win on the whole card but FOTN too? I know it might seem special that Albert tapped at 4:59 of the 1st round but I don't see how the tap earns a FOTN award for a 1 round fight that was somewhat exciting with the sub. attempts and scrambles but nothing amazing.

Bendo/Diaz, Cruickshank/Martinez, Shogun/Gus, even Penn/Rory are all more worthy of FOTN than Jorgensen/Albert.

And Cruickshank really should have gotten KOTN. Not only was it a legitimate KO while Edwards/Stephens was more of a TKO, but a brutal well-timed head kick should weigh more than clipping some guy with a flash knockdown and finishing with strikes on the ground.

Goderson Silva - WHAT THE FUCK?

Daron Cruickshank should have got FOTN and KOTN.

How martinez never threatened him it was a good watch because of cruickshank jorgensen and Albert had so many back and forth moments that's why it got FOTN Phone Post

That's good, because the main card kind of sucked.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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