Mills, Etim, Pickett and Barao Pick Up UFC 138 Bonuses
Three British fighters collected bonus checks following yesterday’s UFC 138 event in Birmingham, England, as the country’s Terry Etim, Che Mills and Brad Pickett were all given respective awards.
Etim was awarded “Submission of the Night”, and an additional $70,000, for his guillotine choke submission of Edward Faaloloto, which took the lightweight just 17 seconds to pull off.
“Knock-out of the Night” honors went to Mills, for his first round stoppage of welterweight Chris Cope, which saw Mills utilize knees and punches to finish the fight and collect an additional $70,000.
And “Fight of the Night” honors, and two more checks for $70,000, went to Pickett and rising bantamweight Renan Barao. Both men came out firing and engaged in several violent striking exchanges, before the Brazilian Barao caught Pickett with a flying knee and finished off the vet with a rear-naked-choke.
