UFC on FOX 18: Ben Rothwell Among Bonus Winners
By FCF Staff
For handing Josh Barnett his first submission loss in MMA competition (not due to injury), Ben Rothwell earned an extra $50,000 tonight at UFC on FOX 18.
Rothwell tapped Barnett out with a guillotine choke in round two, and after the bout, called the technique a “go-go choke”. The move earned him a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
The other POTN went to Anthony Johnson, for finishing Ryan Bader with ground-and-pound strikes in the opening round.
“Fight of the Night” went to Iuri Alacantra and Jimmie Rivera for their entertaining scrap, which saw the latter win the fight via unanimous decision.
