UFC on FUEL TV 8: Silva vs. Stann is in the books and it was an unbelievable ending to a solid night of fights in Japan. Immediately following the conclusion of the event, UFC president Dana White announced the winners of the Fight Night bonuses. White strayed from the usual Fight of the Night, Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night honors and instead just handed out Fight of the Night and Knockout awards.
It was a no-brainer that main event participants Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann earned Fight of the Night honors for their wild brawl that ended with a violent knockout from Silva.
The fight ending combination also earned Silva a share of the Knockout of the Night bonus that was given to both Silva and co-main event participant Mark Hunt, who stopped Stefan Struve in the third-round. Hunt’s shot was so powerful that Struve suffered a broken jaw as a result.
Each bonus resulted in an additional $50,000 for the fighters.
It was a successful return to Japan for the UFC.
