Come on, that FOTN bonus must have been given to placate a precarious situation with all the eye poking or something. I would even call the SOTN award a little flaky. I though Groves triangle was more impressive given that he was getting pwnt before hand. As much as I didn't care for the fight myself, I thought Tito-Forrest was a more appropriate choice for FOTN.



I agree I think KOS vs AJ was far from FOTN and Tito vs Forrest was much more deserving and I don't care for either fighter very much. I also agree with the triangle Grove pulled off was very good. But if anyone deserved SOTN it was Sotiropoulos. He went from a armcrush to armbar nicely and pulled it off against a guy who is a BJJ black belt.

No arguements with Sot's sub. It was also nice. I would have been happy if either got it over Koscheck.

fotn: griffin/ortiz it was a great fight that could have gone either way. No way did kos/johnson deserve it there is to much controversy and to many breaks in between the fight.
sotn: Either sotoropilus(spelled wrong) both amazing subs.
kotn: Saunders- marcus davis had never been koed before and has fought some really hard hitters. I understand the award going to nog tho knocking off a possibly top 5 contender in the first rd.

Posted by machodog76 I think Nog deserved the KO of the night.
If by Nog, you actually mean Ben Saunders, I agree.

If Davis was a title contender I would agree,but he isn't and Nog's dominant perfomance against a higher ranked opponent seemed more impressive to me.
