After a mundane night of free MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Karlos Vemola, Dennis Siver, Pascal Krauss and Mark Scanlon each an extra $60,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami.”
Vemola made quick work of Seth Petruzelli en route to taking home “Knockout of the Night” honors. He unleashed some vicious ground and pound to earn an impressive 1stRound TKO victory over the veteran.
Siver displayed much improved striking against Andre Winner in their lightweight contest. However, he ultimately used his hands to help set up a rear-naked choke to earn “Submission of the Night.”
Krauss and Scanlon were a pair of undefeated Octagon rookies entering Saturday’s event. Although Krauss leaves with a lopsided (30-27, All Three Judges) unanimous decision win, the extra $60K should help ease Scanlon’s pain.
UFC 122 took place Saturday inside the Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany.
Fight of the Night:
Pascal Krauss and Mark Scanlon ($60,000/each)
Submission of the Night:
Dennis Siver ($60,000)
Knockout of the Night:
Karlos Vemola ($60,000)
