After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Brian Foster, Cole Miller, Charles Oliveira, Kyle Kingsbury and Jared Hamman each an additional $40,000 for their special performances at “UFC Fight Night 22.”
Although the Holiday Season is still a couple months away, Octagon brass were in a giving mood Wednesday night as they handed out two Submission of the Night awards. Considering six of the 10 bouts on the card resulted in unanimous decisions, spectacular finishes should be rewarded.
The event took place inside the Frank Erwin Special Events Center on the campus of The University of Texas.
Tonight’s Spike TV broadcast featured a middleweight scrap between top contenders Nate Marquardt and Rousimar Palhares. Additionally, “The Ultimate Fighter 8″ winner Efrain Escudero met highly regarded Charles Oliveira in an exciting lightweight affair.
