After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Brad Pickett (Pictured), Damacio Page, John Maguire and Siyar Bahadurzada each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday at “UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva.”
Pickett and Page put on quite the show in their thrilling back-and-forth battle. Although both will leave Sweden with ‘Fight of the Night’ honors, Pickett will also take home a submission victory.
It took Bahadurzada all of 42 seconds to collect his bonus check. The welterweight easily put Paulo Thiago to sleep in the opening round of their shootout with a short right hand.
Although there were six tap outs on the night, Maguire’s nifty armbar on DaMarques Johnson earned him ‘Submission of the Night.’
UFC on FUEL TV 2 took place inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
