This Saturday’s UFC 125 in Las Vegas marked the first event from the promotion in 2011. There was plenty of action on tap and the traditional “best of the night” bonuses were handed out, this time worth sixty thousand dollars each.
The headliner, with Frankie Edgar defending his belt against Gray Maynard, ended in a draw. Even so it was deemed the best fight of the night. According to the rules, the belt stays with Edgar, but the bonus went to both participants.
The best submission of the night was Clay Guida’s, for his guillotine choke on Takanori Gomi. The knockout-of-the-night award went to Jeremy Stephens for his knockout of Marcus Davis.
