After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Erick Silva (Pictured), Mike Pyle, Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen each an additional $40,000 for their special performances Friday night at “UFC on FX: Johnson vs. McCall II.”
Silva continued his ascent up the welterweight totem pole by quickly disposing of Charlie Brenneman with a rear-naked choke in the opening round of the card’s co-featured attraction. The win earned the Brazilian ‘Submission of the Night’ honors.
Speaking of 1stRound finishes, Pyle had Josh Neer planking on the canvas after connecting with a short, yet devastating, right hand. Pyle pocketed $40k for ‘Knockout of the Night.’
Wineland was up for the KO bonus after flooring Scott Jorgensen in their bantamweight affair. Thankfully for Wineland, he and “Young Guns” earned ‘Fight of the Night’ for their battle.
‘UFC on FX 3‘ took place inside BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida.

Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen ($40,000/each)
