i hate how so many fights are getting FOTN when its under a round...especially when a very entertaining 3 round fight was on the same card. Easton/Papizan is FOTN

Neer or Khabib imo deserve SOTN

Denis hellbows = KOTN

Should've been Denis, Neer, Easton and Papizan



Exactly what I said in the spoiler thread. I'm shocked that Easton/Papazian didn't get FOTN. Surprised Neer didn't get SOTN, but I thought maybe they would give it to Miller.

-edit-

I will say though, that it's probably likely that a lot of guys got discretionary bonuses on this card that we just haven't heard about. If Easton/Papazian didn't get anything it would be a serious shafting.

45K should be a nice security blanket for Morecraft when they more than likely cut him tomorrow.

Pretty much a given seeing as how he was KOed in 3 of his 4 UFC fights.

I'd have given the Eastman fight FOTN myself, but I can't really argue with Barry/Morecraft. It may have been less than a round, but I was on the edge of my seat while watching, so hey, let's just hope Dana and Lorenzo bonus the hell out of Eastman and papazian anyways.

The SOTN should have went to Neer. I mean, c'mon, everyone gets Melvin in a RNC for crying out loud.

KOTN I'm cool with, but I'd have been cool giving it to Barry as well.

Tough choice, matter of opinion in all 3 cases. I hope they all get taken care of finacially

Neer earned submission of the night.

Miller's was less impressive and more expected.


I agree with Barry/Morecraft for FOTN. That was very back and forth and exciting. The comeback finish was also pretty cool.

I honestly didn't enjoy Easton/Papazain that much.



i agree 100%.

I'm with you on this. Sometimes when people want it to be a FOTN due to the names involved, they give it to them even if it's a one rounder. This annoys me as much as the special treatment they dole out to heavier fighters, but like someone said earlier, they do have to eat more.

My thoughts exactly....I don't mean it negative at all, but maybe Miller got sub. of the night due to some other circumstances?

I think it has more to do with being in the main event or even coming back after getting rocked a little than his nephew.

SERIOUSLY? We were obviously watching different fights as that was easily the most exciting fight of the night. From the moment they came out they were in each other's face swinging rock-em sock-em robot style, and the beauty was the combinations and technique were there, it wasn't just an all out brawl. That was an awesome fight and should have absolutely been FOTN.

I agree with those that think it should have been Neer for SOTN (anytime you put a grizzled vet like Ludwig to sleep you deserve it), Denis for KOOTN (when was the last time you seen someone get KO'd due to standing elbow strikes, within 25 seconds of the 1st round no less) and Easton-Papazian for FOTN.

Just a difference of opinion.

Easton/Papazain was decent fight but I don't think either guy was ever in trouble of getting finished. It also went to decision.

I prefer fights that get finished.

Barry/Morecraft was back and forth AND had a finish.
