I thought Hardy/Swick would get FOTN for sure.

Anyone know where i can see Siver's finish ?

I figured that FOTN would go to Swick and Hardy. It was a much better fight IMO

I can't believe they gave FOTN to Bisping and Kang.

Things always seem to go Bisbing's way overseas. Hardy and Swick no question.

I'd like to see it too. It must be huge if it beat out the Andre Winner KO.

Siver didn't KO Kelly, he got a TKO after Kelly just collapsed because of broken ribs. Winner should have gotten KOTN.

I havent seen all of the fights yet but I didnt think Hardy vs Swick was that great of a fight. It had moments of pure excitement but a lot of the fight was a non active clinch match. I thought Brown vs Wilks was better then hardy/swick.

The reason i think kang/bisping won fotn was the turn-around that happened.

Does anyone have a know where I can see the rest of the Prelims/Undercard?

wilks and brown definetely deserved fotn imo. Silvers ko must have been amazing cuz i thought for sur gustafsen(mispelled) or winner would get it both were amazing.
Does dennis silver remind anyone else of brock larson. a guy that has tons of sub wins and is so powerful that for the first rd and a half they are extremely dangerous but after that there exaughsted from cuttin so much

yeah, Kang/Bisping deserved FOTN more than Swick/Hardy for sure.

FOTN is supposed to be for an exciting, closely contested or back-and-forth match. Hardy beat Swick pretty convincingly, and like someone else said, a lot of the fight was spent clinched against the cage with little action.

I'd say that Wilks/Brown deserved it the most though. Really fast paced, back and forth fight, both guys were constantly putting the other guy in danger, landing shots, throwing on subs, and surviving in some pretty tight situations. Kang/Bisping was probably the second most deserving, each guy dominated a round, and Bisping made a big comeback from being basically knocked out in the first.

I really think in a situation like this, they should be giving the bonuses to the lesser known (and paid) fighters to help them out.
