myandroid713 RT @DigitalRoyalty UFC President @DanaWhite is allowing fans to decide "Fight of the Night". An unprecedented move. Link

8 minutes ago via Touiteur

Retweeted by danawhite and 4 others



Dana White will offer a $100,000 bonus to be split between the two fighters who participate in tonight's Fight of the Night. And for the first time ever, he's letting the fans choose it.

Starting at 10 pm ET/7 pm PT, fans around the world can vote at www.UFCVote.com via computer, iPhone/iPad or Android phone -- you can change your mind throughout the night, but only your final vote will be counted.

At the end of the broadcast, votes will be tallied and Dana will announce the winning bout at the Post Fight Press Conference, which can be viewed live at UFCLive.com.


Link Again

YEAH!!!

I think this could be a cool idea but it means people will only vote on the live fights. If people miss an epic 3 round war during the prelims and they don't have time to show it on the broadcast it would be an injustice.

it sounds like a decent idea but i hope it doesnt become a popularity contestand the fans give it to GSP/Kos even if it isnt a FOTN caliber performance

"thank you for voting"

I tried the page 4 times, apparently the FOTN was picked before the event even ended..........................

Yeah for some reason the voting ended at the same time as the event.

Not sure what rocket scientist thought that would be good, only people online watching streams are gonna have the time to go to a voting site in between rounds

Fans voted St. Pierre vs Koscheck as the FOTN. Dana said that he thought the fans blew it, so they don't get to vote ever again. lol I think it should have been Riddle vs Pierson.

GSP vs Koscheck was a one sided beating. To get fight of the night both fighters should putting on an exciting preformance.

I thought Koscheck showed a lot of heart to keep fighting and he was trying to land his big punch even until the final moments of the fight. Kos never quit. And GSP put on a virtuoso performance that was near perfection.

Pierson/Riddle was ok. I thought it was kind of sloppy compared to GSP's surgical performance. Also, what was Riddle thinking?
I didn't like watching Riddle wander into punches, anyone can allow themslves to be hit. It didn't impress me. I suppose his ability to take a punch could be impressive.
Pierson impressed me. His first round showing was very nice.
