It was a wild night in Brazil at UFC on Fuel 10 with BJJ bringing home wins in a ton of tilts. Among the numerous candidates, Erick Silva secured Submission of the Night honors thanks to a beautiful Armbar of Jason High. The distinction earned Silva an additional $50,000 on top of his regularly contracted rate.
Meanwhile, Knockout of the Night was awarded to light heavyweight Thiago Silva after the controversial competitor put Rafael Cavalcante on the canvas with a few well-placed shots in the opening round of their rumble. The finish was Silva’s twelfth strike-based stoppage and improved his record to 15-3. He too won $50,000 as a result.
Silva-Cavalcante was named Knockout of the Night as well. Similarly, each landed an extra $50,000 for their respective performances.
