Junior dos Santos picked up one of the nicest knockouts you'll ever see, but the influence of Mike Tyson led the UFC to give the knockout of the night bonus to someone else.

I like the less well paid dudes getting more, but not like that. The ko of the night should go to the ko of the night - which was undoubtedly Junior.

Grant's KO was awesome, and if Tyson say's jump you say how high Mr. Tyson?

I also don't see why Tyson's opinion is relevant.

Yep. I was watching with a few casuals and they were saying "why is he allowed up there'? During the weigh ins. Dana and his buddies need to step the fuck back. The UFC is bigger than them now

I love how in the UFC's mind joking about rape = being cut from the company.

Yet they have no problems whatsoever with allowing a convicted rapist to determine who gets bonus checks.

Tyson should be hanging round boxing events soaking up the admiration instead surely. Dana seems to have a thing for the guy.

I personally don't like him as a person. Or as a rapist.

Tyson is the man I love seeing him involved with the UFC. Sure he was accused of rape but its not like the court system hasn't sucked before, especially with someone who is in the limelight like that. If you are someone who initially thinks rapist when you hear the name Mike Tyson skip forward to 4:00 this video and educate yourself on the realities of scandalous bitches.

^^this, And this again.

The UFC really needs to sort its image out. They currently seem to believe the use of PEDs and having a convicted rapist as their mascot are acceptable.

I agree to an extent but I prefer to see the OTN bonuses go to different guys instead of one guy getting 2 checks. I don't mind it as much when it is the lower tier guys getting 2 bonuses but guys like JDS already make big bank.

Grant was an underdog and was facing an opponent whom has never lost inside 3 rounds. Juniors KO was pretty awesome but he is the number 2 in the world facing someone who in some rankings isn't even ranked.

All of that said I do also believe Tyson's word shouldnt be final...
