After a spectacular night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded John Albert and Yves Edwards each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz.” Scott Jorgensen (Pictured) double-dipped and took home two bonus checks.
There was only one submission on the card, so Jorgensen’s rear-naked choke on Albert was a no-brainer to score “Submission of the Night” honors.
Jorgensen and Albert also won ‘Fight of the Night’ for their scrap.
Edwards made quick work of Jeremy Stephens to pocket his ‘Knockout of the Night’ check. A thunderous right hook in the opening frame had Stephens on the canvas.
UFC on FOX 5 took place inside Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
Fight of the Night:
Scott Jorgensen and John Albert ($65,000/each)
Submission of the Night:
Scott Jorgensen ($65,000)
