As those watching may have expected, the UFC deemed Diego Sanchez-versus-Paulo Thiago the fight of the night this Saturday in California. Well-deserved were the seventy-thousand-dollar bonuses that went to each of the participants in the fight where Diego took the unanimous-decision nod.
Now knockout of the night went to Cain Velasquez. Besides putting away Brock Lesnar in only 4:12 min, in a fight scheduled to last five rounds, the TKO yielded Cain the heavyweight belt.
The submission-of-the-night award went to Daniel Roberts, who made Mike Guymon tap to an arm-triangle after just 1:13 min of fighting.
