This past Saturday night is one Australian George Sotiropoulos is unlikely to ever forget. Not only did the slick grappler take home a unanimous decision win over highly ranked lightweight Joe Stevenson in front of his countrymen at UFC 110, Sotiropoulos also did his part in helping earn “Fight of the Night” honors along the way. As a result he and Stevenson both netted an additional $50,000 for their efforts. Also procuring $50,000 bonuses at the event were undefeated heavyweight Cain Velasquez and Ultimate Fighter Season 4 finalist Chris Lytle.
Velasquez, who can no longer be discounted as a legitimate contender after finishing Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira in the first round of their headlining bout, won “Knockout of the Night” courtesy of some devastating ground-and-pound after a crisp combo left the iconic Brazilian reeling. Meanwhile, Lytle’s stomach-turning kneebar of Brian Foster was named “Submission of the Night”.
