By FCF Staff
The headliner at UFC 165 was one of the promotion’s best bouts in recent memory, and not surprisingly, Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson were awarded “Fight of the Night” honors for their efforts.
Jones went on to score a unanimous decision win over Gustafsson, who pushed the light-heavyweight champ to his limits throughout the main event. Each man collected an extra $50K for picking up “FOTN “.
“Knockout of the Night” went to Renan Barao, who defend his interim bantamweight championship by stopping Eddie Wineland with a spinning back kick and follow up punches. After the fight Wineland relayed at the post fight presser that he disagreed with the stoppage.
“Submission of the Night” and an extra $50,000 went to bantamweight Mitch Gagnon, who choked Dustin Kimura unconscious with a first round, guillotine choke.
UFC 165 was hosted by Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
