UFC on FX 8: Belfort, Souza, Larsen And Martins Pick Up Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Not surprisingly, Vitor Belfort was handed “Knockout of the Night” and an extra $50,000 for his thrilling finish of Luke Rockhold at UFC on FX 8 in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil. The 36 year-old vet sent Rockhold crashing to the canvas with a spinning heel kick to the head, and then brought about the stoppage with several more punches from above.
“Submission of the Night” and 50K went to another of Brazil’s top middleweights, as Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza picked up the honor for his first round win over Chris Camozzi. After taking Camozzi to the mat, the highly decorated jiu-jitsu competitor beautifully worked his way into a fight ending arm-triangle-choke.
“Fight of the Night” was awarded to lightweights Jeremy Larsen and Lucas Martins for their bruising preliminary bout. Martins finished Larsen with a thumping right hand only moments into round three.
