Jeremy Stephens (pictured) got really happy Saturday at UFC Fight Night 32, and then the featherweight probably got really sad.
After putting Rony “Jason” Mariano to sleep with a vicious head kick, which got Jason so mad afterward that he punched a wall and had to go to the hospital because he sliced his arm up (true story, click HERE), Stephens likely believed his 40 second highlight reel KO was enough to score an extra $50,000 for “Knockout of the Night” honors.
Five fights later and Stephens watched his bonus check dissipate into the Brazilian night when Vitor Belfort unleashed a head kick of his own on Dan Henderson in the show’s featured attraction to jack his bonus.
Oh well. Easy come, easy go. Easy for me to say, I didn’t lose out on $50K.
UFC Fight Night 32 took place inside Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil.
