By FCF Staff
UFC FN 43 proved to be a big night for Nate Marquardt, as the veteran scored a submission win in his middleweight return, and picked up a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
Marquardt tapped out James Te Huna with a first round, armbar, and was awarded an extra $50,000 for the “POTN”.
The other “POTN” went to Charles Oliveira, who submitted fellow BJJ black belt Hatsu Hioki with a modified anaconda choke.
“Fight of the Night”, and an extra $50K each, went to light-heavyweights Gian Villante and Sean O’Connell. The memorable bout went to Villante via split decision.
UFC FN 43 was hosted by Auckland, New Zealand’s Vector Arena.
