Following last night’s UFC Fight Night 60 event in Colorado the recipients of the evenings $50,000 bonus awards were announced.
The ‘Fight Of The Night’ award went to the main event battle between Ben Henderson and Brandon Thatch. This was an entertaining, competitive clash that left everyone impressed with the former lightweight champion’s courage together with his championship caliber skills and experience as he took on a clearly bigger Thatch at short notice for his welterweight debut nd not only won, but managed to finish inside the distance by a fourth round rear-naked choke tap-out.
Neil Magny picked up a ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonus as he notched up his sixth win in a row inside the Octagon with an increasingly dominant display against Kiichi Kunimoto before stopping him by submission in the final round.
Ray Borg earned the other ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonus for his assured showcase of grappling that complelely shut down Chris Kelades leading to a third round stoppage via a Kimura submission.
