Wanderlei Silva, Brian Stann, And Mark Hunt Pick Up UFC On FUEL TV 8 Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Wanderlei Silva’s first trip back to Japan since 2006 proved to be a successful and lucrative one, as the former PRIDE champ earned “Knockout of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” honors for his stoppage win over Brian Stann.
UFC President Dana White announced after tonight’s UFC on FUEL event that Silva and Stann had collected “FOTN” for their entertaining bout, which ended with Silva knocking out Stann in round two. Each man picked up an $50,000 for their efforts.
Silva, however, earned “KOTN” and another extra 50 grand for the victory, which came after he floored Stann with a brutal right hand.
Since there was no submission at the card, White announced that he was awarding Mark Hunt a “KOTN” award as well, for his third round stoppage of Stefan Struve. The former K-1 champ and feared striker dropped Struve with a thumping left hook in round three.
The UFC on FUEL TV 8 card was hosted by the Saitama Super Arena.
