Brad Pickett at UFC on Fuel TV 2UFC president Dana White was very proud of the fight card leading up to UFC on Fuel TV 5 on Saturday in Nottinham, England.

As his fighters delivered at Capital FM Arena, White delivered with his checkbook – to the tune of $40,000 each – for the athletes that won the UFC on Fuel TV 5 fighter bonuses.

Robert Peralta probably thought for a while that he may have wrapped up the Knockout of the Night, but those hopes were most certainly dashed when Brad Pickett laid Georges St-Pierre teammate Yves Jabouin out cold.

Jabouin had been looking good in the fight, landing several hard shots of his own, but when Pickett struck, one well-timed uppercut was all it took to lay out Jabouin and collect the $40,000 bonus.

With several to choose from, the Submission of the Night wasn’t so clear-cut.

Heading into UFC on Fuel TV 5, Paul Sass was a favorite to earn the submission bonus, but it was his opponent, Matt Wiman, that turned the tables. Not only did Wiman end Sass’ undefeated streak, but he also pulled off the armbar victory to earn the Submission of the Night.

UFC heavyweights usually pack a lot of power in their punches, just by the nature of the mass behind them. That held true in the main event with seven-foot-tall Stefan Struve and six-foot-four Stipe Miocic going at each other.

Each had his moments, landing some heavy punches on the other, but it was Struve in the second round that finally caught Miocic with an uppercut that started the dominoes falling. Struve followed up with several more shots to finish the fight and get the win.

Both men were impressive enough that UFC officials declared their bout the Fight of the Night, each going home with a wallet that was $40,000 fatter.
