UFC FN 30: Machida, Musoke, Craig and Barnatt Pick up Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Lyoto Machida not only scored an impressive stoppage victory over middleweight contender Mark Munoz at UFC FN 30, but the former light-heavyweight champ picked up “Knockout of the Night” as well.
Machida blasted Munoz with a left kick to the head a few minutes into their main event bout, which sent the latter crashing to the mat and prompted the referee’s intervention. Machida earned an extra $50,000 for the win.
“Submission of the Night” and an extra 50K went to Nico Musoke, who caught Alessio Sakara with a lightning fast armbar, after the two traded heavy punches early on.
“Fight of the Night” went to middleweights Luke Barnatt and Andrew Craig for their entertaining bout, which saw Barnatt win the fight via a second round, rear-naked-choke.
UFC FN 30 went down at the Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England.
