Updating OTN will be easy. There were so many fighters to choose from that could have gotten a bonus. This was one of my favourite fight cards in the last few years.

I agree that there where several choices and Beal was an automatic bonus but Rockhold should've gotten a bonus for that slick TD reversel into a reverse triangle and kimura at the same time. That was my favorite Submission Of The Night.

Yeah it's hard to hate on Beal getting KOTN, er, "Performance of the Night". That was a fucking Sagat, Street Fighter 2 flying tiger knee KO. Although Castillo's KO of Brenneman was so clean and violent, I wouldn't argue that over Beal either.

I would have to pick Jones-Teixeira as FOTN though. I hate main events getting it when they don't deserve it, just because it's the main event. And I love seeing the guys on the lower scale of pay getting those bonuses. But Jones and Glover fought like maniacs in there.

A fantastic event all around though, really hard to nitpick a night of fights like that. Every single sub had a shot at Performance of the Night, too.

Good to see a lot of subs tonight. Rockhold's sweep off the takedown then locking up the reverse triangle was fucking beautiful ! Great fights all round.

Glover was looking dangerous early on too.

I agree 100% with the bonuses this time. That's rare.

And rumble for upset of the night.

Also, I'm pretty happy to see all these subs for a change. Just an excellent night of fights all the way around.

I disagree with the Beal bonus, while it was spectacular as all hell, both guys were sloppy and swinging for the fences, after the first round, I am pretty sure the whole world knew someone was gonna leave themselves exposed and open for a finish..I personally think POTN bonuses should have gone to Castillo and Rockhold, the way he dominated Boetsch from the get-go was very worthy of a OTN bonus, but I'mone million percent positive uncle dana gave him a locker room bonus. As for FOTN: IVF and Gomi edges Glover and Jones.
