After a freebie night of MMA action, the UFC awarded Vitor Belfort (pictured), Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Lucas Martins and Jeremy Larsen each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold.”
Belfort not only ruined Luke Rockhold’s big league debut by knocking him unconscious with a highlight reel head kick, but he also pocketed an extra $50k for “Knockout of the Night” with the posterization.
Speaking of Octagon premieres, Jacare made quick work of Chris Camozzi in his first fight since Strikeforce’s collapse. Jacare won “Submission of the Night” for his arm triangle choke.
Martins rallied to KO Larsen in the opening scrap of the evening. The lightweights took home “Fight of the Night” honors.
UFC on FX 8 took place inside Jaragua Arena in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil.
