After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Junior dos Santos (pictured), Mark Hunt, Glover Teixeira and TJ Grant each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot II.”
Dos Santos and Mark Hunt took home “Fight of the Night” for their thrilling shootout. Dos Santos ultimately ended things in the final round with an impromptu spinning heel kick.
“Cigano” was also set to score “Knockout of the Night” for the highlight reel strike, but Mike Tyson talked White into giving that honor to Grant. Grant upset former lightweight top contender Gray Maynard in the opening round of their affair with a violent barrage of strikes.
Teixeira’s first round guillotine choke on James Te Huna was the only submission on the card, so it was a no-brainer who took home “Submission of the Night.”
UFC 160 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fight of the Night:
Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt ($50,000/each)
Submission of the Night:
Glover Teixeira ($50,000)
Knockout of the Night:
TJ Grant ($50,000)
