For the third time in his UFC career, 24-year old British sensation Terry Etim procured “Submission of the Night” honors courtesy of a second-round guillotine choke victory over Shannon Gugerty at UFC 105. The win was the fourteenth of Etim’s career and his fifth inside the eight-sided cage.
Joining Etim in pocketing an extra €26,810 – or $40,000 to those of us in America – was fellow undercard fighter Dennis Siver. Siver earned “Knockout of the Night” after finishing Wolfslair product Paul Kelly with a series of strikes after initially hurting him with a perfectly placed spinning kick to the midsection.
Kelly’s teammate Michael Bisping fared better in both the result of his UFC 105 bout and in terms of taking home additional pay, as the former Ultimate Fighter champion’s two-round, back and forth affair with Denis Kang was named “Fight of the Night”. The win brought Bisping’s record to 18-2 and could be considered one of the most important of his career after suffering a devastating knockout to Dan Henderson in his previous Octagon appearance.
