Matt Brown, Jordan Mein, Josh Thomson and Yoel Romero Collect UFC on FOX 7 Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Josh Thomson made his Octagon return a memorable and profitable one tonight in San Jose, California, as the veteran fighter earned “Knockout of the Night” honors for his memorable stoppage win over Nate Diaz.
Thomson staggered Diaz with a well timed right head kick, and then finished off the dangerous lightweight with a series of punches from above. Thomson earned an additional $50,000 for the highlight reel victory.
Since UFC on FOX 7 produced no submission wins, Yoel Romero also earned a KO bonus, for his flying knee finish of middleweight Clifford Starks.
“Fight of the Night” and an extra 50 grand each went to welterweights Matt Brown and Jordan Mein. After a punishing and thrilling opening round, which saw each man nearly finish the other, Brown put away the rising prospect with a series of elbows and punches in round two.
UFC on FOX 7 was hosted by San Jose’s HP Pavilion.
