Ian McCall made waves at Friday night’s Tachi Palace Fights 10, as “Uncle Creepy” took home both the promotion’s flyweight title and the evening’s second-largest fight purse.

McCall walked away with $8,000 for his third-round submission of former champion Darrell Montague, who was awarded $4,000 in defeat. McCall caught Montague in a rear-naked choke to lift the title from his foe at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif.

The evening’s heftiest paycheck went to former flyweight king Ulysses Gomez (Pictured), who netted $10,000 for his second-round submission of Drew Bittner ($1,500). Another top flyweight, Brazilian Jussier da Silva, took home $7,000 after cruising to a unanimous decision over Japanese veteran Mamoru Yamaguchi ($4,000).

In featherweight action, Eddie Yagin claimed the promotion’s vacant 145-pound title when he finished former Bellator champion Joe Soto with a guillotine choke just 2:00 into their bout. Yagin was awarded $6,000 for his victory, and Soto’s pay was the same in defeat.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu wiz Giva Santana also earned $6,000 for his 29-second win over former WEC light heavyweight titleholder Doug Marshall, who matched his pupil McCall’s payday at $8,000. Santana grounded his opponent quickly and took Marshall’s back as he tried to arise, sinking in a rear-naked choke that put “The Rhino” to sleep.
