Mir, Jung, Jones and Machida Collect UFC 140 Awards
Main event competitors Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida collected “Fight of the Night” honors at last night’s UFC 140 card in Toronto, for their bout that saw the challenger briefly threaten the light-heavyweight champ Jones, only to get choked out in round two. They each received an additional $75,000 for their efforts.
Not surprisingly, Chang Sung Jung’s record tying, seven second stoppage of Mark Hominick was awarded “Knock-Out” of the night. “The Korean Zombie” also collected an extra $75,000.
And “Submission of the Night” went to former champion Frank Mir, for the fight ending Kimura he executed on Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, which reportedly broke the legendary fighter’s arm.
