I disagree. Violence and technique together is always the best type of knockout.

Did anybody else feel like it looked like Miocic was going to punch a hole through De Fries when the referee called it? That fight should have been called earlier.

The dude covered up and the ref stopped it. Rocha couldn't cover up because he was out cold. Budge is spot on, they gave it to Miocic because he was on the main card and possibly because he's in a heavier weight class imo.

Diego deserves an extra bonus for helping keep the arena vampire free.

its more to keep the demons from entering his dreams to turn them to nightmares. We have Wesley Snipes to fend off vampires

Scott Jorgensen didnt win KOTN by KTFO Ken Stone from guard, and that was even more viscous than Brookins, so I am fine with Miocic getting the bonus. Im sure he got a locker room bonus anyways

This is true, it is of note though that there were 4 kos the night Jorgensen scored that KO, and KOTN went to not only the main event, but also the winner of that season of TUF. I think it just demonstrates the UFC focusing on star power and size over what is deserving. Considering it is a subjective (or monetary view from the UFCs point) point of view, I suppose there isn't a correct answer. Just something about it sits a little off for me.
