Pyle, Silva, Wineland and Jorgensen Pick Up UFC on FX 3 Bonuses
By FCF Staff
As many observers and fans expected, the bantamweight bout between Eddie Wineland and Scott Jorgensen didn’t disappoint at Friday’s UFC on FX 3 card, and the two received “Fight of the Night” honors for their memorable slugfest.
Both Wineland and Jorgensen collected an additional $40,000 for the bout, which saw Wineland finish the fight in round two with a pounding right hand and follow up strikes.
A powerful right hand also earned Mike Pyle an extra 40 grand, as the veteran earned “Knockout of the Night” for his first round stoppage of Josh Neer.
Pyle floored Neer with a short right hand to the jaw, as the opening round neared its end, to secure his 23rd pro win.
And “Submission of the Night” went to rising welterweight Erick Silva, who tapped out wrestler Charlie Brenneman with a first round, rear-naked-choke.
The UFC on FX 3 card was hosted by Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Bank Atlantic Center.
