Rousey/Tate was NOT fight of the night, IMO. They are trying way to hard to push women's MMA.

You think they are pushing hard now, with Anderson and GSP gone the UFC will do a endless stream of Ronda shoved down out throat. It was bad now but it is going to get even worse.

Giving her one of these bonuses is questionable with this card of great fights but to give her Sub of the night over Miller tapping a black belt with a harder to pull off move is ridiculous. This clearly shows the UFC's desire to push her and pad her stats. OTN bonuses mean nothing more than a way for Dana and co. To give money to their favorites.
