Besides hanging on to his middleweight belt and unbeaten record in the UFC, now at 12 fights, Anderson Silva has further reason to celebrate after beating Chael Sonnen this Saturday, in California. Of the bonuses handed out after the event, this time worth 60 thousand dollars, the Spider took two, for a total of 120K.
Besides the submission of the night award, for his armbar from the triangle at 3:10 min of the fifth round, the Brazilian took the fight of the night prize, which Sonnen won as well.
A second best submission prize went to Matt Hughes, who choked Ricardo Cachorrão out with a, arm-triangle choke.
Now the knockout of the night award went to Stefan Struve, who overcame Christian Morecraft in the preliminary card.
