rafael-feijao-cavalcante-11.jpgFORTALEZA, Brazil – Thiago Silva, Erick Silva and Rafael Cavalcante each earned $50,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 10 event, and Thiago Silva doubled up with a second one for $100,000.

Erick Silva earned the “Submission of the Night” award, Thiago Silva picked up the “Knockout of the Night” bonus and Thiago Silva and Cavalcante earned “Fight of the Night” honors.

UFC officials announced the winners following the event.

The choices were plentiful for the “Submission of the Night” bonus as the card set a UFC record for most tapouts on one show with eight. That broke the record of six that had been set by three different events – the TUF 6 Finale, UFC Fight Night 17 and UFC on FUEL TV 2.

Apart from Erick Silva’s submission, the UFC had tapout stoppages from Antonio Braga Neto, Caio Magalhaes, Raphael Assuncao, Rony Jason, Daniel Sarafian, Leonardo Santos and Fabricio Werdum to choose from.

Erick Silva (15-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) sprawled his way out of a Jason High (16-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) takedown attempt early in the first round, and from there, after a ground scramble, he was able to take High’s back. He was mounted high and he had the option of a triangle choke from back mount or a rear naked choke, but he slid off, latched onto an arm and forced High to tap to an armbar just 71 seconds into the fight. That tapout tied the UFC record for most submissions on one card with six – with still three fights to go.

Thiago Silva (15-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) looked like he had the number of Cavalcante (11-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) in the first round after the two came out slugging. Cavalcante looked to be tiring as the round started to wind down, and Silva took advantage. He backed the former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion into a corner with rights and lefts, then got a big right uppercut to slip right through the hands of “Feijao,” who hit the canvas. And with two more right hands, referee Dan Miragliotta was pulling Silva away.

UFC on FUEL TV 10 took place at Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. The main card aired on FUEL TV following prelims on Facebook.
